So cute! My dear Coco will look so cute in her hat! I am thinking of making a matching sweater too. I think she gets chilly sometimes.

I wouldn't make this for a guinea pig, because one, I wouldn't have one and two, I don't believe in dressing animals up, but I would definitely make it for a doll or adapt for a child.

I love this!!!!! How did you get them to pose so well? It's a great color for both. I have 2 cats and don't think they would cooperate. : )

I have a dear friend who rescues lil piggies..She spends a great deal of time with them & personally i think its a cute idea but not really sure most piggies would choose to wear it about a doggy bandana ?lol

First of all I have to say that I adore your piggie. And I did knit a little hat for ours but he doesnt like to wear it. Maybe I have to make another one and let him pick the colors. Merry Xmas
