Knitting Pattern for Oreo cookie or Linzer Cookie

We have a guinea pig named Oreo, and last week I played with leftover yarn and made knitted Oreo. I also wrote the knitting pattern for him. The pattern is at the test knitting stage and will be available within few weeks.

In the meantime I made knitted Oreo cookie.
