Lovely knitted pig pattern, would have preferred a postal pattern instead of a download though.

One of the best knitted toy patterns ever! While a bit tricky in some of the tighter spots, the pattern is well written and easy to follow, great construction techniques. I like that it's knit pretty much "in one piece" with no seams, should be more durable in a child's hands (I did the legs in the round with conditional cast-on rather than as written to avoid seams and it worked very well). Perfect for the yarn left over from the blanket.

Knitting Around Corners
I love knitting. I especially love knitting around corners.
When my little boy was born, I wanted to knit him something cuddly. I looked through lots of toy patterns and discovered that most of them involved knitting lots of small pieces and sewing them together. That did not appeal to me. So I started designing my own patterns.
Natty Knits patterns use short-row shaping, knitting in the round and picking up stitches to keep the sewn seams to a minimum. The patterns never use wires or plastic shape inserts, it's all done with the power of yarn.
Each Natty Knits pattern has a full blog entry of Hints and Tips that the knitter can refer to. I also blog about my design process, inspirations and other techniques that knitters might find useful.
Occasionally I am contacted by art directors, ad agencies and arts organizations who want to use my images. I almost always say yes. So if you've seen that shark in an ad campaign, or that duck on the front of a festival program, you've come to the right place to learn how to knit one for yourself.
Let me help you knit around corners.

Additional policies and FAQs
The guidance statement issued by the CPSC on Feb 10th 2009 states that “yarn, dyed or undyed” and “dyed or undyed textiles” are components which “can be used (separately or in combination) and sold (provided they have not been treated or altered or undergone any processing that could result in the addition of lead)”. It also states that until some reliable way to test the levels of phthalates in plastics it is best to avoid plastic buttons unless “you know they don't contain phthalates”. As I know nothing about petrochemical processes I have therefore decided to abstain from the use of plastic buttons in my products until further information is available. For the full statement, please see http://www.cpsc.gov/about/cpsia/smbus/sbguide.pdf . Thank you.
