** If using safety eyes, I recommend making a small support round that you'll but the eye's post through before the body, to give the post and washer more fabric to hold as well as to further hide the washer. If you don't use this round, the washer may show through holes around the eye. Just sc 6 in a circle using the amigurumi double ring. Pull it closed so the middle hole is big enough to recieve the safety eye post and bind it off with a slip stitch. weave in the end and pull it into the stuffing of the body when attaching the eyes, to hide and secure it. Alternatively, you can use a felt circle in a contrasting colour, to add dimension and detail to the eyes.
R = round (or row)
If you wish, turn the form inside out to get a different, textured surface showing. Stuff it with fibrefill as you get close to the end here. Bind off with a sl st, leaving 12" or so, and sew the hole closed. With this long end, ch 4. Put 3 sc in the 2nd st from the hook and 3 in each ch leading back to the body. Bind off with a sl st and weave in your end. This should create your pig's curly tail.
If you didn't use pony beads or safety eyes, embroider your eyes on after placing the nose and ears, for best control over the facial expression and placement. You can also embroider a smile, frown or smirk under his nose, if you like.
