I was wondering about fund raising ideas for rabbit and guinea pig rescues when I stumbled across Debi Birkin’s site full of great knitting patterns including this one for a guinea pig knitted in Mohair. The pattern is only £2.50 which is a bargain considering the number of guinea pigs you could knit from it.

The knitted guinea pig is knitted flat on normal needles and sewn together.  The fluffy effect is achieved with a teazle brush.
