Mini Mammals 2 EXPANSION PACK by June Gilbank


March 2017
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
3.5 mm (E)
This pattern is available for $4.00.

Please note this is NOT a complete pattern: this is an EXPANSION PACK for my Mini Mammals pattern. It includes all the modifications required to crochet a Hamster, Gerbil and Kangaroo Rat.

  • Hamster (orange in sample photos): Syrian (Golden) Hamsters are often kept as pets; they hoard food by carrying it in their expandable cheek pouches until they can store it. 
  • Gerbil (cream in sample photos): Mongolian Gerbils are often kept as pets; they are highly social and love to dig tunnels.
  • Kangaroo Rat (brown in sample photos): Small jumping rodents from the deserts of North America. They can survive without drinking any water at all and collect seeds in their fur-lined cheek pouches to store.

Size: approx 4” (10cm) long, excluding tail

Yarn: worsted weight yarn in any sandy sort of colour (beige, light-medium brown, tan, cream, light grey, etc), less than 35m each

Hook: E US/3.5mm crochet hook

Eye size: 10mm

You can buy the original Mini Mammals pattern (Sengi, Jerboa and Mouse) together with this expansion pack at a reduced price here.

What is an Expansion Pack?

  • An Expansion Pack is an add-on to an existing PlanetJune pattern.
  • The Expansion Pack lets you modify or add to the original pattern to create something else.
  • You cannot use the Expansion Pack alone - you must also purchase the original pattern in order to be able to complete the pictured items in the Expansion Pack pattern.
