A crochet pig squish is a cute and adorable stuffed toy that is perfect for squeezing and cuddling. The squish is typically designed to be soft and pliable, making it fun to squish and play with. Here’s a general outline of how a free crochet pattern for a pig squish might look:
- Worsted weight yarn in pink (or your desired pig color)
- Crochet hook suitable for your yarn (usually around 4.00mm – 5.00mm)
- Fiberfill stuffing
- Yarn needle
- Safety eyes or embroidery floss for eyes
- Black embroidery floss for nose and mouth
Finished Size: The finished pig squish might be around 4 to 6 inches tall, depending on your yarn and hook size.
- Start with a magic ring, work into it a certain number of single crochet stitches (SC) based on your pattern.
- Continue working in continuous rounds, gradually increasing the number of stitches to form the body’s base.
- After a few rounds, start working even (without increases) to create the body height.
- Create a smaller circular shape by working fewer stitches into the magic ring.
- Attach the snout to the body and stuff it lightly with fiberfill.
- Crochet two pig ears using a simple oval or teardrop shape.
- Attach them to the top sides of the pig’s head.
- Create four cylindrical shapes for the legs and attach them to the body.
- Crochet a small curly tail and attach it to the back of the body.
- Attach safety eyes or embroider eyes using embroidery floss.
- Embroider a small black nose and a smiling mouth using black embroidery floss.
- Final Assembly:
- Stuff the body firmly with fiberfill.
- Close up the opening at the bottom of the pig using a yarn needle.
