Item details

The year 2007 is the year of the red fire pig. According to Chinese astrology, children born in the year of the pig will be happy and honest.

This is the 6th square in my rugalugs series. I have designed this one for babies gear so it is a bit smaller than my other squares. it can be upsized by adding extra rounds. When using 8 ply yarn, worsted weight, or double knit yarn - size 8 (4mm) hook the square measures approximately 11cm/ 4 ¼ inches. Worked in 4 ply or baby yarn and a 3.5mm hook the square measures approximately 9cm/3 ½ inches

This package includes patterns for two pig motifs - pig head, and pigs behind, 3 afghan squares, pig face, pigs behind and a contrast plain granny square. Instructions are provided for using your motif and squares to make a baby hat/beanie and a pair of piggy booties. The motif can be used alone on clothing or to make badges and fridgies. The square has a myriad of uses.

The pattern will come to you as a pdf file in Australian /British and American terminology. If there is any thing you don’t understand, just email me. Because I email you the file there are no shipping costs and I aim to deliver within 24 - 48 hours of payment.

This will make a unique gift for a child born in the year of the pig. This square is useful for creating some great babies gifts for showers, christenings or just for fun! It also has appeal to older kids.

Pigs have a bad reputation in Australia. They were introduced in the 1770’s, as domesticated farm animals and soon became feral. The feral pig has a huge impact on the Australian environment and is considered one of Australia’s worst pests as they erode the soil and waterways kill farmed animals, eat small mammals, frogs, ground-nesting birds, lizards and eggs. The best place for a pig is on a rug, beanie or booties as they can cause no harm here!
