Free Amigurumi Pig Crochet Pattern (US Terms)

Pig Amigurumi | Free Crochet Pattern

This is a free amigurumi crochet pattern for a little pig with small bucket.

I’d like to share with you my latest crochet pattern which features a little pig carrying a small bucket. This tutorial will show how to make your own little pig. If you would like to print this pattern you can purchase an ad-free printable pdf version of this pattern here.

The amigurumi crochet pattern is written in US crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and pictures to help you along the way. Some parts of this little pig are crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different colour yarn to keep track of where each round begins.

This pattern is crocheted in dk weight yarn and is approximately four inches tall.  Please be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, but just be consistent with the tension you are using. For some of my favourite amigurumi tips check out ….. 6 TIPS AND TRICKS FOR BETTER AMIGURUMI……And most importantly, enjoy.
