Some Hamsters of My Own

Now that the hamsters are back in Sheffield with Grace, I have a yearning for hamsters of my own.

To see their cute little faces each day, to feel the feather-like touch of their paws on my hand - I let out a sigh of longing.

But no more!  For I now have my own hamsters.

OK - so they're not real hamsters - they're crocheted, but at least they will be clean around the house and almost (but not quite) as cute as the real ones.

I based my hamsters (which incidentally are Dwarf Russian White hamsters I think, Grace will correct me if I'm wrong), on a pattern by Kati Galusz for Newborn Guinea pigs.  I modified the pattern slightly, changing the style of the back legs and the shape of the ears.

Kati's pattern is available as a free Ravelry download, here.

So, I'm off now to play with my hamsters - what fun we'll have!  See you soon.


  1. They are a cute little make. Have a great weekend.

  2. Wow these are super cute. Happy new year to you x

  3. Now you need little hamster houses for them...
