Here's how the girl made up the pattern for the guinea pig dress rebecca mentioned!

1. Measure your guinea pig.
There are five key measurements that determine a good fit
(see pic.1):

* From neck to "tail" (#1).
* Around neck - at midway up the neck (#2).
* Chest between front legs (#3).
* From neck to underarm (#4).
* Chest - around the widest part of the chest (#5).

2. Write down all measurements. And make a real-size paper detail

3. Using the needles you have chosen for your weight yarn, make 10cm x 10cm examples of your knitting:

- of your chosen pattern stitch and determine the st and row gauge;
- or in stockinette stitch, or in your chosen pattern stitch.
