Hi there I have been trying to leave a comment but for some reason it won't let me about your pig pattern I don't know how much wool you need as it does not say?

Amy said...

For how much wool you need, I would say one thing of yarn is enough

Shayna said...

Hi there I am almost done making the pig hat but am having trouble. After I have sewn on the nose around can I cut the strings left over. And the ear I put in the wrong place ontop of the head can I undo that.

Amy said...

I would have the yarn go on inside the hat and cut it from the inside. Sure undo the ear and do it again.

Penny Dupont said...

Would you happen to have an email for other questions n different projets?

I take yarn and yarn needle and sew the ears on top of the hat.
