What you need to know

Use simple intarsia and knit yourself an adorable Guinea pig. If you’ve always wanted a pet that’s easy to look after but is just as huggable as the real thing, then Peanut the guinea pig is the make for you! She is made using mainly stocking stitch so she’s ideal if you’re still perfecting your knitting skills. We love the cute addition of a pink bow which Nicola Valiji has crocheted – if you’re not sure how to do this just use a coloured piece of ribbon.
