Our August Free Project is this adorable Little Pig To Knook!

Don’t you just love that little face! Check out Amy’s Leisure Arts knit and crochet pattern books: Little Knitted Creatures, Cute Little Animals, and More Cute Little Animals and visit her on Facebook to see more of her delightful amigurumi designs!
