I really don't think Pip ever hated Joe. Even in the midst of his illusions of becoming a gentleman, Pip never hated Joe.He looked down on him though. Joe however, never stopped loving Pip. Despite being treated badly, he nurses Pip back to health, pays his debts and apologizes for any pain he felt from Mrs. Joe,

"Which dear old Pip, old chap," said Joe, "you and me was ever friends. And when you're well enough to go out for a ride—what larks!

“Pip, dear old chap, life is made of ever so many partings welded together, as I may say, and one man’s a blacksmith, and one’s a whitesmith, and one’s a goldsmith, and one’s a coppersmith. Diwisions among such must come, and must be met as they come.”

I hope this one helps

What Tracey C, said

Joe represents the forge and the marshes. When Pip is ashamed of home he is ashamed of Joe.

He doesn't hate, but shows disloyalty:

"I determined to ask Joe why he had ever taught me to call those picture-cards, Jacks, which ought to be called knaves. I wished Joe had been rather more genteelly brought up, and then I should have been so too." (62 ch.8)

Pip to Biddy. "I did intend to ask you to use and little opportunities you might have after I was gone, of improving dear Joe." (149 ch.19)

Chapter 27 pg 222 is good to when Joe visits Pip and Pip judges his clothes and feels impatient
