An original realistic crochet amigurumi Guinea Pig pattern from the Fuzzy Friends collection by June Gilbank.
Yarn: a fuzzy yarn, and a small quantity of worsted weight yarn for the ears. The specific yarns I used have probably been discontinued since I designed these patterns in 2007-8, but these patterns are very versatile and you can substitute many different yarns with great results:
Bonus Information Guide: All Fuzzy Friends patterns include an additional PDF instruction file called About Fuzzy Patterns. This 4-page reference guide is crammed full of information, tips, and examples for choosing and using both eyelash and fluffy/fuzzy yarns, how to substitute any regular yarn of your choice, and how to brush smooth pieces with a wire brush to give a fluffy result.
Hook: US E / 3.5mm and US H / 5mm
Size: approx 9.5″ long by 4″ tall
Details: The pattern includes full instructions to make single-colour or dual-colour guinea pigs and long haired or short haired guinea pigs!
Eye size: 9mm
Note: Take advantage of the savings when you buy any three Fuzzy Friends patterns of your choice as a custom set!
