Lilli & Fin is one of three patterns I’ve designed for children’s author Cornelia Funke and based on characters in her upcoming book - Lilli and Fin. This book will be released in the US in May, 2017, although it has been available in Germany for some time as Lilli und Flosse.

Lilli & Fin are really two patterns in one. Although their bodies are the same, their heads are shaped differently (Lilli’s is round and full, while Fin’s is long and thin), and they each sport a unique hair style. The body is worked in the round and in one piece - which means no seaming. The head is begun in the round, then switched to flat to add hair color.

All three patterns are currently available for free on Cornelia’s web site - so they can be knitted and ready for your little ones to play with when the book comes out. :-)
