If you have the installation media for 11.1 (bootable DVD) you can generally boot off it and choose the 'Upgrade' option:
"Installation" -> Select language and keyboard layout -> Agree to the License ->  Select "Update" instead of "New Installation"

But you may also upgrade from within the installed 11.0 via Yast or zypper. The methods are described in detail here:
