Okja the Super Pig amigurumi

Netflix has been putting out some awesome stuff for a while now. Kimmy Schmidt is one of my favorite shows, and there's Orange is the New Black, GLOW, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, House of Cards, and of course Stranger Things! They're also making movies, and the new film Okja is sorta strange, heartwarming, sad, funny, and completely unique. There are big stars on screen and behind the scenes. It's like Free Willy for grownups. The super pig star of the show is a creature named Okja. Okja is a lovable giant pig/hippo/rhino looking animal, and I made him out of yarn. If you want to, here's a pattern!

  Bulky weight gray yarn (Lion Brand "Hometown USA" -- Dallas Gray)
  Polyester fiberfill
  Black embroidery floss
  8mm brown safety eyes
  Size J (6.0mm) crochet hook
  Yarn needle
  Embroidery needle
  Quilting pins
  Super glue

*Okja as written measures 10" long. If you would like a smaller doll you can substitute worsted weight yarn and an E hook. Smaller eyes will also be needed.

Fasten off and leave a long tail. Sew to the back of Okja.

Apply a dab of superglue to the post of each eye and insert into the head as shown. (Using super bulky yarn, it is difficult to use the washer and assemble the eyes, so gluing the eyes into place works better.)

Thread a yarn needle with a strand of gray yarn. Come up beside each eye and stitch a small short stitch over the top of each eye for an eyelid. Weave in ends.

Thread an embroidery needle with black embroidery floss. Stitch nostrils making loop shapes and straight stitches on the muzzle. Stitch a vertical line and two short diagonal lines for the mouth. Refer to photo.


  1. She looks wonderful! Nice job!

    I may have to learn just so I can make one of my own :D

  2. I thought OKJA was a new movie released based on a huge pig. Are you trying to bring the concept of the pig into knitting. I hope people get inspired by this, cause many loved the movie.

    1. This pig is crocheted I don't think Allison has any knit patterns on this site.

  3. Kimmy schmidt is one of my favorite shows as well! it radiates such positivity and every episode makes me so happy and glad for kimmy

  4. House of cards is a great show and I haven't missed a single episode of it. Your knitting is great and neat. Its so nice of you to share your hand made knitted things here.

  5. How do we make a version that's a bit bigger than the pattern? This is an awesome pattern btw, it's perfect!

  6. I am happy with your article,your website is pretty good. Many articles are very useful for everyone. I am sure your website will grow in the future.

  7. I just found a typo in the pattern here:

    Rnd 5: *(2 sc in first st, sc in next 2 sts), repeat from * to end of rnd (30 sts)

    At the end of Round 4, you end up with 24 stitches. At the end of Round 5, the pattern says you should have 30 stitches, but if you follow the "2 sc in first st, sc in next 2 sts" step, you end up with 32 stitches at the end of Round 5. To end up with 30 stitches at the end of Round 5, the pattern should read, "2 sc in first st, sc in next 3 sts."

    I didn't catch it at first, and I kept ending up with 40 stitches at the end of Round 6 instead of 36 stitches. So I went back and did the match and caught the problem, which is "sc in next 2 sts" when it should be "sc in next 3 sts" in Round 5.

    Thank you for the pattern though, I LOVE this Okja!
