Product Description

Checkerboard Piggy
In honor of the year of the Pig here is Checkeboard Piggy. Pigs are so darn cute it's hard not to love them. For color planning I suggest choosing five colors for the border or use your stash for hit or miss. I dyed a special piece of wool for my pigs called Mrs. Piggy. Not too pinky or peachy and light enough. Whatever, your approach this will be a fun rug to hook.

If you are alternating squares with 2 colors I suggest 3/4 of Mrs. Piggy for # 6 cuts and above. If you are just outlining the squares and using 1 color, then order 1.5 yards of Mrs. Piggy.

Accessories

I love pigs, they make me chuckle and piglets are so adorable. I wanted a realistic pig color. Not all, but most have a light salmon/pink skin tone with whitish hair. Here is a blend of those two effects. Also available in a medium value for those wrinkle lines.
