Crochet Now | Percival the Party Pig

Huge congratulations to the folks of Crochet Now magazine who’s 100th issue recently went on sale! I was delighted to be asked to create and share some fun designs for their special edition.

With the magazine comes a very special Amigurumi All Stars supplement which has 48 toys for you to make. Myself and some other Crochet Now designers created a set of brand new party animals, including my new ‘Percival the Party Pig’ with separate party hat and present. I love how the whole group looks together – it looks like a fabulous party doesn’t it!

I created my Party Pig out of some Ricorumi DK which is a firm favourite yarn of mine. Ricorumi DK is a 100% cotton yarn that comes in wee 25g balls [57.5m] in that’s available in 80 solid shades, 10 spray shades, 5 prints, 3 neon shades and also some 10g balls of gold and silver lame – there’s so much to chose from!

The only other things you will need for your pig are some stitch markers, a tapestry needle, some toy stuffing and a 3mm hook (closest US size D/3).


The rest of the supplement is comprised of a collection of Crochet Now’s top toys from the archives to help celebrate the 100th issue. And it includes another pattern of mine – you may remember my Coffee House Kawaii Toys from issue 71.

A crochet donut, coffee cup and icecream, with kawaii faces, are all grouped together with real life treats.

Issue 100 is on sale now with over 71 fun patterns to crochet and is available to buy from most supermarkets. Or if you miss the print version you can grab a digital version from

Until next time folks! Happy hooking and keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
