My daughter fell in love with the Chirri & Chirra series of children books after a trip to our local library. We checked out Chirri & Chirra, The Snowy Day. I was drawn to the beautiful art style and my daughter loved reading about the adorable twin sisters' adventures. 

Of course we bought the entire series and have continued to enjoy the newest release Chirri & Chirra, Underground.

There were no toys with their likeness so my daughter asked if I could crochet a set of dolls. I thought they turned out so cute and wanted to share.

I've tried to make the pattern as simple as possible for all skill levels. If you have never made an amigurumi doll here are a few links that might come in handy.
