Amigurumi Guinea Pig by the sun and the turtle

Amigurumi guinea pig free pattern: This is a Crochet amigurumi animal pattern, very easy crochet project for beginners. You will learn how to make an amigurumi with a simple structure. This can be a fast crochet project for a handmade gift. You can use this guinea pig as a keychain, nursery decoration, christmas tree ornament, etc.

For this pattern you will need:

  1. Dark pink or violet yarn 4 mm
  2. Two Plastic safety eyes
  3. white and pink thread
  4. Fiberfill stuffing
  5. White felt

Hook size:
For this pattern I am using a 4 mm clover hook but you can use a smaller or bigger and in any brand of your preference. The bigger the hook the less tight the stitches and the bigger your amigurumi. If you use the hook I am recommending in this pattern and tour fabric still looks loose (you can see the stuffing) you should use a smaller hook.

  1. For the face and back we use white pressed felt
    but other white cloth can work as well.
    Draw the shape of the face onto the felt and cut.
    Sew or glue (wood glue) the felt piece on place.
    Same goes for the spot on the back.
  2. Insert safety eyes.
  3. Embroider a cute pink nose and the line of the mouth.
  4. Add some make up to the cheeks so your guinea pig can look happy and cute.

  1. I found a mistake...
    You have too many rounds on the body. There are two rounds with stitces 24, but there should be only one
    By the way its really cute pattern. Can I use it in my blog translated to estonian ? = )

    Amigurumi Fairy
