I did not set out to make two pigs; I set out to make one, but after the first was done, I referred to the notes I had made as I had worked the first pig and found them to be incomplete. So using those notes, I set out to crochet a second pig in an effort to reinvent the wheel I had just invented, so that I could take more complete notes while I did. I’m happy to report that today, I did exactly that and finished both the pattern and the second pig.
In my last blog post, I detailed what felt like my failed efforts to finish the second pig (and the pattern) according the timetable I had in my head. Here is how far I had gotten:

Like these two crochet pigs, I sometimes feel as though I live my best life when I am in my pajamas, and if I could get away with going to the grocery store or walking my dog while wearing a bathrobe thrown over my pj’s, I would do it, and for those of you inspired to crochet your own pajama wearing pig, here is the free crochet pattern so you can do just that.
