Knitted guinea pig

Adapted a knitting pattern for a mouse to make a guinea pig as a present for my vet's young son.  I used an "eyelash" yarn, knitted the ears in double knitting and embroidered the features.

A close-up of ginger piggy:

He looks happy!

The finished toy is life size.
Toy piggies don't eat hay or grass, so this little chap is nestling in some green ribbon.

Looks like he made short work of that!
