Whimsical Designs for Rug Hooking
In honor of the year of the Pig here is Checkeboard Piggy. Pigs are so darn cute it's hard not to love them. For color planning I suggest choosing five colors for the border or use your stash for hit or miss. I dyed a special piece of wool for my pigs called Mrs. Piggy. Not too pinky or peachy and light enough. Whatever, your approach this will be a fun rug to hook.
If you are alternating squares with 2 colors I suggest 3/4 of Mrs. Piggy for # 6 cuts and above. If you are just outlining the squares and using 1 color, then order 1.5 yards of Mrs. Piggy.

I love pigs, they make me chuckle and piglets are so adorable. I wanted a realistic pig color. Not all, but most have a light salmon/pink skin tone with whitish hair. Here is a blend of those two effects. Also available in a medium value for those wrinkle lines.
