I made these guys for Sylvanna in the Adventure Time swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=405581.0), but I thought I'd give them their own post.

If you don't know the show at all, Finn is a 12/13 year old boy who wears a bear hat and Jake is a dog who can stretch and shrink to all different shapes and sizes, and they have adventures in the land of Ooo. Watch it, it's brilliant!



Finn is about 13" tall and has a backpack which opens with a button (I put chocolate stones in it for the swap).



Jake is about 8" tall, I tried to make him in proportion to Finn as he normally is when he's not changing shape. I gave him nice long arms though, and his cute little tail.



They're both great shapes to crochet, but since their legs are so thin it's difficult to get them to stand up. I managed to pose them outside, so they look like they're off on an adventure (well, Jake's just hanging around in a tree).

My (almost)7 year old loves Adventure Time!  (I think it's abit rediculous, but eh... I'm not going to like everything he likes, right?)  I might have to make him a few for cristmas! (not nearly enough time before the big 7 birthday)

Thanks for sharing them!

Thanks everyone! meleriffic - yes, I made up the patterns myself. It was the design of the characters that first attracted me to the show, so I really enjoyed translating that to crochet.

They look spot on. I really admire people who can create patterns like that. It's an amazing talent!

Thanks littlemee, I've sent you a PM. Season 3 of Adventure Time has just started to be shown in the UK, so we're really enjoying the new episodes. I especially loved 'Thank You' and I want to make a snow golem and a fire pup now!

I think you'll have a lot of success with the 'Adventure time' patterns, you're definitely gifted.

Thanks again Smiley

These are by far the best crochet Finn and Jake I have found on the internet. It's no surprise to me that they've come from you.  Smiley

Looking forward to seeing them on your Etsy shop soon... hopefully?

I've now remade Finn and Jake for my kids - I didn't change much, but I did tweak Finn's arms a bit to make the edge of his sleeve a bit neater, and changed the construction of the shoes to match Jake's feet. Here they are, hanging out in my garden:
