What you need to know

Sarah Keen's family of knitted guinea pigs is fun to knit using simple shaping and colourwork techniques

Did you know baby guinea pigs were called pups? Well now you do, and aren't they just the cutest things? Sarah Keen's adorable pattern includes designs for two and three-colour guinea pig pups, along with a grown-up guinea pig who is clearly being kept very busy on baby-sitting duty. They're knitted in DK yarn and you can get really creative with your colour combos, or even try a more textured yarn to create a fuzzy finish. This pattern is from Knitted Menagerie by Sarah Keen (GMC Publications, RRP £16.99). Available online and from all good bookshops.
