Tiny Pigs And A Blue Elephant
I just sold these pigs in my Etsy shop the other day. They didnt even last a day before somebody purchased them. I still have to show them off though because arent they just the cutest especially the baby pig. I love his little tail.
The Mama pig measures 1 1/2 inches and the baby pig measures 1 inch. A little fiddly to knit at first but easy and quick after the first couple of rows. This pattern was designed by Apocalypse Knits and she has given me permission to sell pigs made from her oh so cute pattern. I think I will be knitting many more of these. This yarn was not very thin so imagine how small they could get.
I just listed this sweet little elephant. He has been waiting to be finished for quite some time now so he is excited just to be done. I made him in a soft cotton blue yarn with grey on the inside of his ears and his feet.
I gave him felt eyes so that he would be safe for any age. I envision him being a great baby shower present.
He measures 11 inches tail which I think is just the right elephant snuggling height.
