Amigurumi Totoros: Grey, Blue and White Crochet Totoro


Me and my kids we like to watch Japanese animations and one of our favourite animation is the classical one: My Neighbor Totoro which we were watching during the Christmas Holidays. Great animation - wonderful magical creatures. My children, of course, wanted me to make them all when I said I could make a Totoro for them! 
We went to a yarn shop and my 5 year old son especially liked the Alpaca silk yarn (Austermann Alpaca Silk). Considered done! Now they are ready to be presented.
I took Lucy´s patterns and started with Grey Totoro Pattern, tummy I made my own, didn´t follow the pattern. Then I did the Blue Totoro, again, tummy wasn´t done by the pattern, I also changed the ears, took grey´s Totoro pattern. And finally the little White Totoro, I followed the pattern down to ears and then attached the ears into one piece with 3 chainstitches between and continued, a bit different than shown in the pattern. Now I´m glad they are all done - they are lovely and why not to make some animation characters. If you´d like to make your own Totoro, could use the mentioned patterns above. I used 2,5mm crochet hook, 10mm black safey eyes a lot of fiberfill stuffing.
Now could enjoy the movie over and over again! :)

    1. JC, ears for blue Totoro, I used Grey Tototro´s ear pattern As to tummy, I improvised, I wanted it to be with a curve. Just tried it "on" and continued row by row. Totoro is my favourite cartoon character :)
