    My daughter asked me to make this for Penny as she likes to snuggle in a blanket on the settee, watching Peppa Pig on TV. (Two show maximum after nursery)

    This pattern can be found here:

    Needles & Hooks

    • Double Point 6.00mm (US 10) 15cm
    • Circular 6.00mm (US 10) 60cm
    • Single Point 6.00mm (US 10) 30cm


    • Tapestry Needle


    Notes: Child size : waist 30" waist to fins 35". The pattern is from the US . The yarn is American and for the child's size it advised 425 -470 yards of yarn. I chose Painbox Yarn Chunky because it was acrylic and the same gauge as the original yarn

      26 rounds left and I have run out of yarn. The yarn used in the pattern was an American brand and the child's tail used between 425 & 475 yards of yarn so I guess my substitution was not exact but the result is great anyway.

      Just starting on the decrease rounds to make the tail. The chunky Paintbox yarn is really great to work with; it's pliable and soft and not as stiff as some chunky yarns I've used.
