Kissing Piggies! Free Valentine's Day Pattern

KISSING PIGGIES

I wrote this pattern for Michael's stores a couple of years ago for Valentine's Day. They make a cute little gift for your special someone!

Two sweet little piggies kiss with the help of magically magnetic snouts. Crocheted in squishy soft Loops & Threads® Snuggly Wuggly™ baby yarn, these two make precious Valentine's gifts that are fun to make and fun to play with.

MATERIALS

Loops & Threads "Snuggly Wuggly" – Pink (A, 1 skein) and Candy Pink (B, 1 skein)
Crochet Hook, Size 3.0mm (US D/3)
Tapestry Needle
Polyester fiber-fill
Black DMC Embroidery Floss (1 skein)
2 - Black rounded 0.63 cm (1/4") buttons with shank or 5mm safety eyes
2 - 0.63 cm (1/4") extra strength or heavy duty magnets
Embroidery Needle
Scraps of matching fabric (for ears)
White thread

Rnd 17: *(Sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts), rep from * to end of rnd (18 sts)

*Insert a stitch marker to hold your place. If you are using safety eyes, insert them now according to package directions, between Rnds 4 and 5, 9 sts apart. Stuff body firmly. Continue adding stuffing as you complete the next two rounds.

Rnd 18: *(Sc2tog, sc into next st), rep from * to end of rnd (12 sts)

Rnd 19: Sc2tog around (6 sts)

*You will continue crocheting to make the tail.

Row 20: Sl st into next st, ch 8, work 3 sts into 2nd ch from hook and next 5 ch, sl st into next st (18 sts)






Fasten off, leaving a long strand of yarn for sewing. Use a yarn needle to weave the remaining strand through the last round, closing the hole. Weave in ends.



Snout (Make one with yarn A, one with B)

With yarn and D hook, make an adjustable ring, ch 1, sc 6 into ring. Pull tail gently to close ring.

Rnd 1: Work 2 sc into each st (12 sts)

Rnd 2: Working into Back Loops Only (BLO), sc into each st around (12 sts)

Rnd 3: Working into both loops of each st, sc into each st (12 sts)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. Use black embroidery floss to embroider two straight stitches onto Snout for nostrils.

Sew Snout to Body, centering it between the eyes, and leave an opening. Insert the magnet into the Snout, then fill in with stuffing. Finish sewing opening closed. Weave in ends.



When creating second Snout, make sure to check that the magnets are situated in each Snout to attract, rather than repel, each other.



Legs (Make four with A, four with B)

With yarn and D hook, make an adjustable ring, ch 1, and sc 5 into ring. Pull tail gently to close ring.

Rnds1-5: Sc into each st around (5 sts)

Fasten off and leave a long tail. No stuffing is necessary. Sew Legs to underside of Body.

Ears (Make two with A, two with B)

With yarn and D hook, make an adjustable ring, ch 1, and sc 3 into ring. Pull tail gently to close ring.

Rnd 1: Work 2 sc into each st around (6 sts)

Rnd 2: *(2 Sc into next st, sc into next st), rep from * to end of rnd (9 sts)

Rnd 3: 2 Sc into next st, sc into next 8 sts (10 sts)

Rnd 4: Sc into next 5 sts, 2 sc into next st, sc into next 4 sts (11 sts)

Rnd 5: Sc into each st around.

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Flatten Ear to form a triangle. Sew to Body three rows behind each eye.

Flower (Make one with B)

With yarn B, make an adjustable ring, ch 1, and sc 9 into ring. Sl st the opening closed.

Rnd 1: *(Ch 1, dc and hdc into next st, sl st into next st), rep from * to end of rnd. Last sl st is made into first st of the round.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Sew onto Piggie's head near her ear.

Finishing

Thread the embroidery needle with embroidery floss, knotting one end. Insert the needle into the Body under the Snout and make a "v" smile with the embroidery thread, keeping the stitches loose to round out the smile. Bring needle back up to the surface between stitches and knot the thread close to the fabric. Insert needle back into Body and out through a stitch, clipping it close to the surface so that it retracts back inside.

Cut two 0.63 cm (¼") triangles from fabric scraps and stitch into place on Ears with white thread.




Abbreviations
Ch: Chain
Sc: Single Crochet
Hdc: Half Double Crochet
Dc: Double Crochet
St: Stitch
Rnd: Round
Rep: Repeat
Techniques

Adjustable ring: Make a ring with yarn. Insert hook into ring, yarn over and draw up a loop. Ch 1, as directed in pattern. Work the stitches required in pattern into the ring. When complete gently, but firmly, pull tail to close up the ring.

BLO(Back Loops Only): Instead of inserting hook under both loops of the next stitch, insert hook under only the back loop of the stitch. This leaves an unworked loop in the front.

TIPS

The pieces are all crocheted in the round in unjoined spirals. Use a locking stitch marker if necessary to mark the beginning of each round. When you complete a round, move the marker to the loop on your hook and continue crocheting.

Oink Oink! Enjoy! Happy Valentine's Day!
