17th March 2013 – I have improved and simplified this pattern, please use the download link to get the latest version (v3).
Here you can see photos from this pattern and also the original pattern.
Being half Finnish, my ancestry demands that I adore sauna, sausages, vodka, silver birch trees, driving, herring (I don’t), Santa Claus (who doesn’t?) and the biologically unfathomable Moomins. I’m a big fan of Tove Jansson’s stories and illustrations, so this is my tribute to her.
If you have downloaded this pattern before, please download it again as I have significantly improved and simplified it. The original pattern was my very first attempt at writing a pattern and it did have a few errors in it – oops, you learn. And, it’s still free – my favourite price. Feel free to share or link to this pattern, but please don’t alter it or remove any credits.
I would LOVE to see your finished Moomins. I’ve already seen quite a few and they’re pretty amazing.
