Miss Petunia Pig

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

I’ve been wanting to crochet a pig for a long time. So when I was contacted by LoveCrafts to design a pattern, I jumped at the opportunity! And I’m very happy to say that this is one of my all time favorite designs!

Miss Petunia Pig is an intermediate amigurumi crochet pig pattern. This ballerina pig has a flower crown and is a fun pattern. It uses Paintbox DK cotton yarn.

Miss Petunia Pig is made with Paintbox DK yarn. This was my first time trying this yarn, and I loved it! You can read my review here.

In the past, I’ve always used medium weight yarn to crochet amigurumi patterns, but it was fun to try using a DK yarn. And to be honest, I liked it more.

Miss Petunia Pig is an intermediate amigurumi crochet pig pattern. This ballerina pig has a flower crown and is a fun pattern. It uses Paintbox DK cotton yarn.

I loved how small the stitches looked and how much I could manipulate the yarn to made the shapes I want. It seemed almost cleaner looking. Of course, this could just be the Paintbox yarn.

So, without any more of my rambling, let’s get to the pattern! I hope you enjoy this beautiful piggie!

Happy Crocheting!

Pattern Notes:

  • All parts of this pig, aside from the skirt, are worked in continuous rows. You will not slip stitch at the end of each round, so it is highly recommended that you use a stitch marker to put into the last stitch of each round.
  • I use Paintbox DK Cotton Yarn for this pattern. I highly recommend this yarn, but if you are unable to use it, another DK cotton yarn should work fine.
  • The invisible decrease (inv dec) is simply a single crochet 2 stitches together done only in the front loops. If you’d rather just do a simple decrease, you are welcome to, but it will be noticable. 
  • Ch 1 does NOT equal a stitch.
  • Ch 3 DOES equal a double crochet.
  • When stuffing the pig with poly-fil, the best strategy to take is adding a little bit at a time while you are crocheting. If you add it all at once, it will be hard to keep it smooth. Make sure to pull the poly-fil apart with your hands before stuffing it into the pig.
  • It’s important to count the rows, so a row counter is highly recommended.
  • Follow the following guide for how number of stitches is communicated:
    • The number before the stitch is the amount of times worked in one stitch
    • The number after the stitch is the number of stitches you are to work that specific stitch into.
    • When stitches are surrounded by asterisks (*), you are to repeat what is between the asterisks the amount of times stated.
    • Number in parentheses is the number of stitches in each round. 
    • Eg. “*2sc, sc 4* 6 times (36)” means “2 single crochets in first stitches, single crochet once in next 4 stitches. Repeat this pattern 6 times. (There are 36 stitches in this round.)
