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 think, as I am sure the idea is just for the fun and the art of the craft... I <3 (love) it

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

It is so cute and festive. I want to adapt the pattern to make the for my pet ratties!!!

Looks just like my daughter's 1st g-pig wish I had the pattern then! RIP Chippy

Thanks for motivating me to continue to make a very large dog sweater, for a large dobie. This is soooo cute, I just broke up laughing, how cute is this? What a neat idea. A mini dog could have a hat like this too! Awesome idea!

I would LOVE to see your dobie in a sweater you made..Dobes have the biggest chests and are my hubbys favorite dogs hands down..

This is adorable! I've been looking for a pattern like this. Thanks!


I hope you enjoy this pattern! I forgot to mention, the good little guinea pigs modeling the hat are named Clive and Howard. :)
