This cute Little Piggy with its cute curly tail is a fun, quick and easy felting project. Little Piggy is knitted, made up and stuffed before felting in an ordinary washing machine. Every Little pig is slightly different after felting, and discovering each character is half the fun! Quick and easy to make for new knitters, this piglet is knitted flat using stocking stitch and basic increases and decreases.
This pattern includes fully illustrated instructions for knitting, sewing up, stuffing, felting and adding the features to your Baby Piggy

One 50g/50m ball of felting or Filz wool is all that is needed for this project- making it an ideal introduction to the technique of knit and felt.

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
