Ok so I currently have SIX pregnant friends.  I was thinking of what to knit as gifts instead of booties & blankets... I found a great pattern from Kris Knits.  These are very cute, and I have been knitting them in some rowan handknit cotton.  Excuse the unblocked pictures!  Cheesy

The pictures on the patterns are adorable, but then I started thinking I could create a different picture.  And a guinea pig came to mind (I have two!).  I drew this pattern of the even rows (the odds are all knit).  The green dots are knit, with purls on the blanks & red dots.

It is not perfect, but the guinea pig body shape is essentially a furry potato.  Comments welcome  Cheesy

That is so clever.  What a great idea.  The guinea pig works because it is a clear and simple shape.  Thanks for sharing the design.

Thanks! And I should just point out that the gp wash cloth is not for washing the guinea pigs!!!  I'm not sure they would appreciate it  Grin

haha - thank you for clarifying what elderflower's comment was about.
And thank you for showing a brilliant - and simple - way to graph a pattern.

(Furry potatoes indeed - I'm sure they would not be impressed by that comparison.)
