This cute pig pattern is from a 1943 booklet from the Spool Cotton Company entitled Crochet Your Victory Barnyard. There are also patterns for a girl and boy in addition to all the other barnyard animals. Since polyfill wasn’t around in the 1940s the the patterns call for cotton batting and all are crocheted with Knit Cro Sheen. This should produce a stitch that is small and not quite as conspicuous as worsted.
