This pattern round-up is inspired by my family’s BBQ restaurant. I have decided to make some little piggies to sell there as merchandise! Here are some of my favorite free crochet patterns that I have found. This post is split into 3 sections: clothing, stuffed/amigurumi toys, and other piggy items. Enjoy!

1. Piggy Baby Booties by Croby Patterns.
Who doesn’t love some cute baby booties? This is the first piggy crochet project I am working on. You need cotton yarn and an E4 hook to start. To assemble you will need a yarn needle, some white thread, and safety eyes.
2. Pig Hat by Repeat Crafter Me.
This pig is a cute project to start as Fall is approaching! What I LOVE about this pattern is that it comes in SIX sizes- from infant to adult! You will need two shades of pink yarn, a size H crochet hook, some black yarn, white thread, buttons for the eyes, and a yarn needle.
3. Pretty Pig Headband by Hopeful Honey (Olivia).
This is a cute head warmer to crochet before it gets cold! You need a 4.5 mm/size 7 crochet hook to make this headband.
Stuffed /Amigurumi Pigs
This pattern is super straightforward and great for an Amigurumi beginner. Use plush yarn and a 4.5 mm/ size 7 crochet hook. You will also need a yarn needle, some black yarn, fiberfill, and safety eyes to assemble this huggable piggy.
5. Crochet Pig Doll by Fukurou Crafts.
The body on this 6″ doll is adorable. The legs are worked into the round of the body, so no sewing them on separately!
Gather two shades of pink yarn, black yarn, a 1.8 mm crochet hook, fiberfill, safety eyes, and a yarn needle to make this pig.
I used a 2.25 mm (size B) crochet hook instead and the result was a 8.5″ doll instead of 6″ as the original is supposed to be. I love the result!
These fashionable pigs are 10.5″ tall. The first link is for the pig dolls themselves, while the second link will take you to the patterns for their clothing. The creator of these patterns is very detailed and has full video tutorials as well if you need more guidance. You will need a 4.5 mm/size 7 hook or smaller for both patterns.
7. Mini Pigs by Furls Crochet (Brenna Eaves).
Don’t let the name fool you. These are large amigurumi toys. The “mini” refers to the type of pig, not the size of the crochet product, and the author says the results are close to life-sized!
To makes these beauties, you will need a G (4.0 mm) or G+ (4.5 mm) crochet hook and bulky yarn. Make sure you know how to do color changes (unless you would like to do a solid piggy) and all the stitches listed before you start.
8. Mini Pig by Amy’s Crochet Cave.
Now THIS is an actual mini crochet toy. As you can see in the image, this toy stands about 3.5 cm tall (about 1.4 inches). This is a quick, easy make. You will need a 3 mm crochet hook.
I personally do not have a 3 mm hook, so I will be trying this with a 3.5 mm. If there are large gaps, I will switch to a 2.25 mm. Just remember, if you change the crochet hook gauge, expect slight differences in size and possibly shape.
9. Little Crochet Pigs (ballerinas) by Knitted Story Bears.
Have a special little ballerina in your life? This 5″ piggy would be the perfect gift. Besides basic amigurumi materials, you will need sport weight yarn, some tulle for the tutu, and a size 2.5 mm crochet hook.
Other Piggy Items
10. Pig Bookmark by Heart Hook Home.
My favorite part about this bookmark is the little curly tail! This pattern uses a size G hook. Don’t forget stuffing, black yarn, a yarn needle, and safety eyes for the head.
11. Piggy Bank Tissue Box by Nicki’s Homemade Crafts (Nicole Riley).
Maybe I should cover one of my numerous tissue boxes (yay allergy season) with this. I think I would leave the legs off for a neater look, but it is super cute either way.
12. Pig Ornament by Okie Girl Bling ‘n’ Things (Kylee).
This ornament would also make a great appliqué. Just leave off the loop on the top. And if you’re like me and don’t have a hot glue gun, you can embroider eyes on or use beads or safety eyes.
