Today i finished making a mini free spirit doll with an outfit to give as a birthday gift to one of my daughters nursery friends.
She's not so mini though. Shes made with worsted weight yarn on an I hook and her clothes are DK weight on an E hook so shes actually about 9/10 inches tall.
I thought i'd share her with you.

Hi everybody, I've added the tassel hair method as a free download on my Lulu Store and also added this little mermaid pattern to lulu and Ravelry. She's really quick and easy to make, a great project for a beginner!

Repeat rows 10-15 until your caterpillar has the amount of segments that you want.
(skip round 15 on the final segment)
Fasten off, thread end through the stitches of the final round and pull tight.
If you'd like to make your caterpillar poseable you could thread a pipecleaner through the segments.
