For all knitters who liked my walrus AKIAK ( I finally found the time to translate him :-)

So tiny, yet so self-confident (if not to say megalomaniac): Napoleon the Krill might be a lightweight, but he knows very well that the eco system of the oceans is doomed without him, albeit he doesn‘t like the fact that his extended krill family is the start of the food chain. But then, there is always a downside. As long as he is clever enough to escape the blue whales, Napoleon consideres himself as the most important being in the universe!

My Napoleon measures approximately 19 cm = 7.5 inches from head to tail – which is far to big for the real animal. You might try to knit him in much thinner yarn :-)

This pattern was first published in my book “Steffis wunderbare Tierwelt”, which literally means “Steffi’s wonderful Animal Kingdom”. There is only a German version of the book available.

Have fun knitting your personal megalomaniac,
yours Steffi
