Sirdar Oink Knitting Pattern
I had to share this knitting pattern which I found recently in a charity shop while on holiday in Ambleside. Oinkerrific! I actually think the little pig is quite cute just not on this jumper… Any ideas what he could be used on – maybe a children’s blanket?

  1. I think the pattern would look cute on a hat or scarf or maybe the back of a mitten (one pig). I’m thinking of some sort of garment where an observer do a doubletake and notice that they are pigs, not a houndstooth pattern. the concept is very cute!

  2. Wow! That’s, er, special! Yes piggy would look much better on a blanket, or maybe a scarf and hat for children?

  3. Nice! Reckon you should make it as is and then wear it as a novelty Christmas jumper!

  4. Amazing! I agree with Rose this would look cute on a scarf or hat, or perhaps homewares – a cushion cover or hot water bottle cover for example?

  5. Don’t you just love the 80’s! Princess Diana once wore a similar sweater with sheep on it! I like to think one could wear a pig sweater with a kind of knowing cool but I very much doubt anyone could pull it off 🙂
