An original crochet amigurumi guinea pig pattern by June Gilbank.
These baby piggies are so adorably tiny that they can sit in the palm of your hand - just like real baby guinea pigs!
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in any appropriate guinea pig colour, e.g. cream, brown, grey, black, beige (plus white, for the marked piggies)
Hook: US E / 3.5mm
Size: approx 4.5" (12cm) long
Details: Pattern includes full instructions to make 4 realistic baby guinea pigs: a Single-Coloured piggy (with optional brushing instructions), and three types of colour markings, graded by difficulty:
- Test the waters by making your first simple colour changes for the Banded guinea pig.
- Get your feet wet with a few more colour changes for the Blazed markings.
- Wade into multiple changes per round with the more complex Dutch markings.
Eye size: 10mm
