Farm Pig Baby Blanket – Crochet Pattern by Crafting Happiness
I designed him to have floppy ears and cute piggy feet, and the body of the blanket is crocheted with an easy one-row repeat basketweave pattern that gives him a lovely warm texture.
And what a great idea! A cuddly warm blanket that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative piggy toy to decorate the nursery.
This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender-neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the cot.

A Multipurpose Baby Blanket
The pig baby blanket acts as a blanket, a play mat, a toy, and a decoration for the nursery. It is the perfect baby blanket for a modern home where space is limited.
It is a blanket that keeps your child warm and snuggly.
If you travel, your baby stays warm and entertained while playing with the pig toy attached to the blanket.
At home, use this blanket as a play mat.
When not in use, fold it back and it instantly transforms into a cute piggy that you can rest on the cot to entertain your little one or to decorate the nursery.

This adorable piggy blanket will make a wonderful baby shower gift that can be used year after year as a blanket, toy or playmat.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
I am stuck on this pattern, can you help?
Every pattern you purchase from my shop comes with help and support. I will help you get unstuck and finish your project, so you can buy with confidence and try something new.
If you are completely new to crocheting, I recommend starting with beginner patterns and build up your confidence, pay attention to the skill level of my patterns and buy only if you are already at that level.
NOTE: The free version of this pattern does not come with the same help, just because it’s not fair on those who support me and bought this pattern.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t contact me if there is a mistake or something unclear with this pattern, it simply means that you will need to learn the stitches, the techniques and learn how to read a pattern on your own.
Can I crochet this blanket using aran yarn (worsted yarn #4) ?
Yes you can! The body parts will come out a little larger than my own, but still in the same shape, use a smaller hook than recommended for aran yarn to keep the size smaller. The blanket can be adjusted by simply changing the starting chain count.
Do I have to use the same yarn brand as you to get the same result?
No, you don’t. You can use any brand you like, but pay attention to the yardage, different brands have different yardage.
The head looks so much smaller than the blanket. Am I doing something wrong?
The head, by design, is much smaller than the blanket because the blanket will be folded into a smaller piece. If you use the yarn weight and hook recommended in the pattern, your head is the right size.
Can I change the size of the blanket?
Yes, you can. Each pattern can be adjusted by simply changing the number of chains you start with, but keep in mind the multiplication formula for each pattern.
Can I sell blankets made with your pattern?
Yes, you can. Please check the copyright section for more details.
