Pink Pigs got Wings

by VM Brasseur on December 14th, 2005

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon this pattern for a winged pig. As soon as I saw it I knew I needed to make it. I mean, it’s a crocheted pig with wings for goodness sakes. Thankfully the holidays have given me a good excuse. This pig is destined to be the Christmas gift for Hannah, where it will be thrown around and sucked on. Or so I hope. There’s really no telling whether she’ll give it a second look. Six month olds can be so dreadfully fickle.

Overall it was a quick and easy pattern. From start to finish the entire thing took only two evenings’ worth of time (one and a half Kurasawa samurai movies and one viewing of Nightmare Before Christmas). The pattern was easy to follow most of the time but occasionally it bore closer inspection to verify that the stitch I was about to make was the correct one. It does not say so, but keep a stitch marker handy to keep track of where one round stops and the next begins. The wings, which I thought would be fairly tricky, ended up being easy once the aforementioned closer inspection occured. About the most difficult part of the piece was shoving stuffing into those tiny piggy legs.

An unfortunate side-effect of this project: a truly depressing amount of leftover pink yarn. Cheap Red Heart pink yarn, at that. Oh, goody. What’m I gonna do with it all? Anyone want a big cotton candy pink scarf or something?

    Well, I believe the darling Miss Hannah will greatly enjoy chewing on it. I promise to send pics.

  2. Woo hoo! Babies chewing on pigs! Now I ask you, is that entertainment or what?

  4. you should use the leftover pink yarn to make a whole army of flying pigs. then you could suspend them from the ceiling of your office (at a variety of heights, of course) and whenever someone annoyed you, you could threaten them with the fearsome pig army of doom. yeah, that’s what you should do.

  5. Actually, you’re not the first one to suggest the flock of piggies. But you are the first to suggest they be used to menace my enemies.

    “Pork from above!”

  6. I, for one, welcome our new pig overlords.

  7. The pigs approve. You shall live. They will need faithful servants to do their bidding and grovel on demand.

    Prok, the other warmongering death from above.

  9. We shall be firm, but benevolent rulers. That is, as long as everyone is well behaved. Any misbehaviors will be dealt a harsh prokking.
