Step 81

Step 81:Your crossing at your newest bead, number 15. The pig now has his second eye in place!


Step 82

Step 82:Bring your black thread through existing beads 38, 39, and 40. To your red thread add one new bead, number 16.


Step 83

Step 83:Cross at bead number 16! Pull tight. Your done with another circle of 5 beads!


Step 84

Step 84:Now you have a circle of 8 beads, just like you did on the pigs bottom. You need to connect them all, so bring your red thread through all of the pictured existing beads. Number 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23.


Step 85

Step 85:Tie a knot to secure your pig. After you make a knot, bring your red thread through existing beads 23, 22, and 21. Your black thread will go through existing beads 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, and number 22.

In step 82 I do not use a red bead for bead 16 but a bead the same color as the main pig body.
