You’ll go hog wild for these absolutely adorable pig knitting patterns!
It’s almost Chinese New Year and 2019 is Year of the Pig. According to the Chinese Zodiac, it’s great year to make money, and a good year to invest!
To celebrate the New Year and because they are just so stinking cute, why not knit up a cuddly pig for yourself or your favorite little one?
If you choose to knit one of these pigs for a child, I’ve included links to popular children’s PIG books (at the end of this post). You’ll create cherished memories while they sit next to you, snuggling their pig, and reading a pig book.
