A rainy day in Brooklyn is the perfect backdrop for a shoot of sweet little Totoro; his leaf has gone missing, but I lent him my umbrella, don’t worry.
Notes: I made the ears smaller–only up to 18 sts before working straight. I futzed the decreases for the bottom of the ears. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly. If you make this, I recommend making the parts in the following order (not the order the pattern is written): White eye circle, ears, arms, tail, THEN the body. (The belly circle can be done any time; I attached it after sealing up his body. This way you can attach everything as you go and still be working off the same ball of yarn.
Happy birthday to my friend Holly! Totoro will go to live with her on her big 3-0, today!
