Outside Pig Ear (make 2):
With light pink yarn…
Chain 5, SC in 2nd ch from hook and along the rest of the chain, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (4 SC)
Row 3: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2 stitches, 2 SC in last stitch, chain 1, turn (6 SC)

Row 7: SC decrease, SC in next 2, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 8: SC in each stitch across (4 SC)
Row 9: Make two SC decreases
Row 10: Make one SC decrease, chain 1 and continue to SC around entire ear. Make 2 SC in the bottom corners.

Fasten off leaving long tail to sew to ear parts together.


Inside Pig Ear (make 2):
With dark pink yarn…

Chain 5, SC in 2nd ch from hook and along the rest of the chain, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (4 SC)
Row 3: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2 stitches, 2 SC in last stitch, chain 1, turn (6 SC)

Row 9: Make two SC decreases
Row 10: Make one SC decrease, 
Now switch to light pink yarn, chain 1 and continue to SC around entire ear. Make 2 SC in the bottom corners.



Sew inside and outside of ear together with your tapestry needle. Try to sew the two parts together by weaving the needle under the last single crochet’s on the edge of the ear. Sew finished ear onto hat.


Because you are sewing two pieces together, the ear will be sturdy and and will stand up when sewn onto hat. be sure to sew the entire bottom edge to the hat. If you only sew a small portion of the bottom onto it, it may flop over.



Pig Nose:
With dark pink…
Magic ring, Make 10 SC in ring, continue to crochet in rounds. Use a stitch marker if needed.
Round 2: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around (15 SC)
Round 4: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2, repeat around (20 SC)
Round 5: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 3, repeat around, join with slip stitch (25 SC)

Change to light pink…
Round 6: SC in each stitch around, fasten off leaving long tail to see onto hat.
With black yarn stitch on two small nostrils. Do this before you sew snout onto hat.



To make nose larger, continue to SC in rounds after Round 5… so Round 6 would be “2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 4, repeat” and Round 7 would be “2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 5” and so on. You could also use HDC or DC stitches instead of SC’s to make the nose larger.

Sew two small black buttons on for eyes or crochet eyes: Magic ring, chain 1, 6 SC in ring, pull tight.
Now you have a little piggy!

    As always, your creative designs are well worth the work. Although my grandchildren are older, I have made minion hats for them and they love them. I think I will make a couple of these and then find heads that will wear them!

    . Idk if it was intentional but round 3 is missing in the instructions. I may be confused. But I was wondering if there is a pattern correction or am I missing something?
    I love this pattern, by the way. Definitely on my to do list. Thank you for the pattern! 😉

    I just made your cat, owl and pumpkin hats for the holiday season for my grand kids. They turned out perfect. I don't know how you manage a house,kids and this website but you are amazing and so are your patterns. Thank you so much. Next on my agenda is the pig hat for my niece in Alaska.

    In the odd rows of the ear flaps where you just dc all the way across, there is no ch 1 turn. Is there supposed to be a ch 1 or do we just turn without that? Thanks.
