Make your own little piggy for someone special in your life. Make your own Piper Pig for unique gift for a baby shower or child's birthday. The body of the pig will fit a 1.5" diameter rattle insert (some are for sale in this shop). The tail is made as part of the body (you don't sew them on!), making it even more durable for kids.
To obtain the approximate measurements, use worsted weight yarn and a 3.50mm crochet hook. But to make a large or smaller pig, simply use a bulky weight yarn and a 4.50mm-5.00mm hook for a large pig, or sport weight yarn and a 2.50mm crochet hook.
Approximate measurements: 4.5" long, 3" tall
