Free Crochet Guinea Pig Patterns

August 16th, 2010 · 16 Comments

I have been making crocheted guinea pigs for a long time.  Almost all of the guinea pigs I crochet have one front leg that is a different color than the other four legs.  That is because my daughter’s guinea pig, Cheeks, had one front leg that was white, while his other three legs were black!  Cheeks was a very well loved piggie!

This is the first time that I have converted one of my patterns to a PDF file.  This format will make printing the pattern easier for you!  You will need a PDF reader, like Adobe, to be able to open this file.  The Adober Reader is free through the Adobe website.

I’ve created a pattern for the adult guinea pig and a pattern for the baby guinea pig.  I hope you enjoy them!

    Absolutely adorable :-) If I knew how to crochet, I’d make my own little herd of guinea pigs!! :-)

    I love that you were inspired by Cheeks to give all your crochet guinea pigs one different coloured leg. Such a sweet way to remember what I’m sure was a very special and well-loved fur baby :-)

    I’ll be blogging about my secret vacation location soon!!

    I’ve totally pinned this for a future project. I have a friend who owns 11 guinea pigs (possibly more actually) so perfect Christmas gift :)
    Thanks for sharing the pattern!

    Hi, thanks so much for sharing your pattern. My daughter’s daycare just got pet guinea pigs so I think I’ll make a matching set for the kids to play with. Thanks again :)

    I could not get the direction on page 1 and 2 to print. I make things like this for the Children hospital and St Jude’s children. I thought this would go over big with the kids.

    I wonder if using one of the mohair or fun-fur yarns would work? Long-hair piggies!

    How do you make the nose and mouth?

    How do you make the nose and mouth for the guinea peg? I couldn’t find any instructions in the pattern.
