About the yarn.

This crochet whale pattern is made using Needles 8 ply acrylic yarn. Again, the texture of tis yarn is just awesome! This time I worked with Royal Blue, Ice Mint, Chocolate Brown and Hot Pink. The head, body, tail and arms are made using hot pink. While designing Anguro, I kept seeing a little pig who loves the sun so much that she’s developed quite a tan or maybe it’s more of a sunburn, LOL.

The overalls are made using the same colours, intervals of royal blue & ice mint. You can get this yarn to work on your amigurumi whale as well through Crochet Kenya website. And bonus, the PDF version of this pattern is FREE for Download there as well. Click below for more patterns from the Needles Yarn series.

Notes:

  • Read through the crochet pig pattern from beginning to end before starting your work just to be sure don’t have any questions that might cause frustration while working on the project.
  • For colour changes, when working last stitch in old colour:
    • Work as a typical sc until you have 2 loops on your hook.
    • Drop the colour you are not using and pick it back up when you need it again in the following rounds.
    • Use the new colour to yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook.
  • Part of the pattern uses magic circle technique. If you are unfamiliar with this method of would like a refresher, I have a detailed tutorial on my blog:- How to Work and Secure the Magic Circle

    Is there a picture of the pig? I would probably make these animals if I could see them before hand.

    1. Hi again Sandra. One of the website updates took a little too long to kick in. Everything should be fine now. Let me know if you still have issues.
