Crocheted amigurumi pig in pink bernat blanket yarn

My next animal in the farm animal series is a little amigurumi pig! I made him with soft Bernat Blanket yarn and short legs to make him cuddly and cute. This is an easy pattern that works up quickly. The finished piglet is about 3 inches tall and 7 inches long.
