This is a comparison of how a knitted project turns out when you follow the pattern and how a project turns out when you do not follow the pattern! These are both made from the same pattern, I pinned it a while back…
I made two of them for Christmas presents, one for a toddler without the wings and one for a knitter! I always worry when I give a knitted item to a knitter…you have to worry about that dropped stitch in the second row and the fact that maybe you didn’t say, follow the directions!
The one on the left was knitted first, I thought I was following the directions, but actually decreased instead of increasing! Trouble for sure! I managed to fix it up so it was presentable…I do love these flying pigs though!
I do love these tails…and they were so easy to make!
These piggies have a pink rubber ball inside them. Makes it a bit of a challenge to knit around it when you first put it in there, but after a bit it gets easier.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas!
