Guinea pig knitting pattern and free patterns
I’m guessing you didn’t wake up this morning thinking ‘I must get on and knit a guinea pig’. If you’re a knitter, maybe already a fan of Claire Garland’s heart-melting patterns, I’ll bet my hat that when you clap eyes on this fluffy little one, you’ll think just that!
I know just how much love there is out there for Claire’s creations, so I thought I should share this little beauty with you. Just in case your fingers are itching to get cracking on a new creative project.
The pattern is available to buy on Etsy here as a PDF download and it’s to make a palm-sized guinea pig.
When finished, the guinea pig will be approx 14cm/15.5in tall from feet to ears. About the same length as a real guinea pig.
The pattern includes yarn recommendations and requires flat knitting on 2 needles, body made with minimal seam joining as you go.
You will also need toy eyes (Claire buys hers on Etsy). There are sellers all over the world. If the guinea pig is for a small child, however, you could crochet the eyes instead.
If you’re looking for a free pattern to get stuck into, scroll to the bottom – there are links to an adorable collection of Claire’s patterns that are all free to download.
Hope you enjoy! X
