Last year I got into crochet! I combined my love of pigs with my new hobby, by making a new friend for Squeak. Has anyone else made ‘soft toy’ guinea pigs?

Lol! I've been trying to find a crochet pattern for a guinea pig, but haven't succeeded. Is that your own pattern? Squeak & Potato are gorgeous x

They are brilliant! I learnt crochet from the internet. The hardest thing is learning how to hold the wool correctly. Then you need to learn how to do a magic ring. Once you’ve mastered this- there will be no stopping you! Good luck.

My nan taught me the very basics as a kid, can't cast on though! Always something I really couldn't get the hang of!
And crochet looks mega tough! Bought a few things last Xmas to make for my niece, nope, still in the boxes at her house! :doh:

You haven’t tried to teach me yet!
Others have tried ........ and failedXD
Right the challenge is on! :eek: I'll bring up some needles and some wool when I come and visit. It is not the person being taught that has the problem, it is the patience of the teacher ........
