Hungry guinea pig
OINK! This little guinea pig is hungry and lets the world know it is well past feeding time.
You could use any yarn weight for this pattern as long as you choose a fitting hook, it will only influence the finished size. My example piggies are 6” with Red Heart Lisa (DK) and 3mm hook, or 7” with Red Heart Soft (worsted) and 3.5mm hook. You could use a thicker worsted yarn or maybe even chunky, and bigger hook, for a full-grown adult guinea pig.
The pattern contains instructions for both one and two-color guinea pigs. It is 8 pages long with many photographs illustrating the process. It is written in English with US crochet terms. Stitches and techniques used:
starting with magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, single crochet increase, invisible decrease
I worked out a new short row technique for this little guy, but nothing to worry about, I included very detailed instructions and step-by-step pictures. The pattern only uses basic stitches so altogether I would classify it as an intermediate project.
Finished items made from this pattern are yours to keep or gift away or sell, I only ask you to give me credit as designer in case you decide to sell them.
