Pig amigurumi FREE pattern

Hello crafters! How are you doing?! 

Today I will talk about this amazing amigurumi crochet technique that it is becoming a hobby for many of us! Plus, I am sharing this beginner-friendly pig amigurumi pattern! 

During these hard times that we are all sharing in the world, crochet has become a therapy option for many people. Kids, teenagers, moms, and everyone started to learn new skills and discover new passions.

PIN IT FOR LATER!

I learn to crochet with my mom at the age of 11, she taught me knitting and embroidering also. But what I fell in love with was this beautiful Japanese technique that we call amigurumi.

Crochet toys were always there, but little, small, cute, and practical came with a Japanese kawaii way of making. 

When I first started making amigurumi, I started making animals, and animals are still my big love, even though now I do dolls, characters, imaginary trolls, everything that my mind imagines, I put into action. And it was so calming for me, so a relaxing time where I need to concentrate my thoughts and leave all my problems behind.

A few of my friends asked me to teach them and thinking that this can help more people than only my friends, I decided to create an easy and fast amigurumi crochet pattern so everybody can learn, and relax! In the end, you will have a beautiful piece of the crocheted toy made by yourself. And this feeling, believe me, is a stress relief!

For this post, we are going to crochet a cute pig amigurumi!

This adorable crochet pattern! A super easy amigurumi pig, using a combination of simple techniques, to help you improve your crochet!

If you are a complete beginner in amigurumi, don’t worry! This pattern is for amigurumi beginners, and if you have any trouble completing the pattern, write me in the comments below. I will make sure to help you!

From all the stitches used for this pig, I have a small and fast tutorial. So, in case you don’t know what to do, I’ll leave links to all of the lessons you might need. The articles are made with pictures and written lessons. At the end of each article, there’s a small video with the movements combined.

I am thinking about shooting a complete video tutorial teaching and showing how to make this easy crochet stuffed pig pattern. If you would like that, please leave a comment in the box below!

Stitches used for this pattern (you can click and a page teaching how to make the stitch
will open with written lessons, pictures, and videos).

TIPS:

  1. Remember to keep your stitch with a tight tension, this way, you won’t have any see-through gaps.
  2. Always count your stitches after every row, so you will make sure to have the total amount of stitches.
  3. Use a piece of yarn to mark the last stitch, so you won’t miss where the beginning and end of your row are!

Well, that said, let’s begin!

  • 2mm crochet hook;
  • lightweight pink yarn;
