Our chubby cheek bad wolf looks like he has the confidence and power to blow down shabbily constructed homes in the pig-ster neighborhood. This is the perfect crochet pillow to accompany story time with a youngster and young-at-heart oldster.
Gauge/Tension:     GAUGE: 8 sts = 2” (5 cm); 8 rows = 2” (5 cm) in single crochet with larger hook. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
Pillow measures 16” x 16” (40.5 x 40.5 cm).
Special Stitches
sc2tog =[Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
sc3tog = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] 3 times, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
Special Technique
Join with sc = Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw
through both loops on hook.
Notes
1. Pillow is made from 2 panels with larger hook: 4 squares sewn together for front panel and back panel worked back and
forth in rows.
2. All other animal pieces are worked separately with smaller hook and sewn to sides of pillow. Fasten off all pieces with
long tails for sewing.
3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on
hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Cut old color.
