Green Tweed Pig!

On some days you just have to sit down and take an hour to knit a green pig. I made this fellow back in 2003 from a pattern in Spin Off Magazine. It is a great introduction to short row shaping. I stuffed him with failed attempts at spinning cotton yarn. He has a seed stitch back and a stocking stitch belly. His limbs are i-cord, but the ears were the most fun to knit. He needs eyes, though. Over the years I've been unable to find a well proportioned googley eye.

he's lovely!!! he doesn't need eyes--it makes him more homey to not have them. :)
