Knitting Pattern For Toy Pig

Animal friends knit themselves

Cuddly toy pig Anton with the big button eyes is just too cute! Knitting professionals can easily knit the little fellow himself.

We knit a Kuscheliter – not some, but piggy Anton. The instructions are here.

Anton has a big heart for Dreckspatzen, after all, he is one himself. He has a delightful ring-tailed tail and laughs just as wrigglingly, thinking of how once he pushed Clemens, the farmer’s son, into his soul. That was maybe a mess! Size: Sitting Anton measures about 16 cm.
