Amigurumi Blue Totoro Pattern Instructions

Materials

  • Approx 75g mid-blue yarn, double knitting weight.
  • Approx 10g white yarn, double knitting weight.

Note: Double knitting weight is equivalent to light worsted, although
worsted weight should work just fine, as long as you use the same
weight of yarn throughout.

  • Small amount of white yarn or white felt for eyes.
  • Small amount of black yarn for nose.
  • Stuffing.
  • 1 pair 9 mm safety eyes.
  • Tapestry needle.
  • 3.5mm hook (US E hook).

Finished size: approximately 8″ tall.

Abbreviations

  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch or stitches
  • ss = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet (US), double crochet (UK)
  • hdc = half double crochet (US), half treble crochet (UK)
  • dc = double crochet (US), treble crochet (UK)
  • tog = together
  • sc2tog = decrease by working two sc together
  • YOH = Yarn over hook
  • FO = fasten off

Notes:

The blue Totoro is made in rounds. Do not join rounds unless told
to, use a stitch marker to mark the start of a round – a small piece
of different coloured yarn placed under the stitch at the start of the
round will do. To start a round, you can use the magic ring method,
but I prefer (ch2, work 6 sc into 1st ch). If you work the 6 sc over
the tail of yarn as well you can use that to pull the hole tight.
Whichever you use, always make sure that there is no hole in the
first round before you continue.

The Totoro needs to be stuffed firmly to keep its shape. Start
stuffing the body when it is about three-quarters made. A large
shape like this takes a lot of stuffing, but keep working at it, putting
in a bit at a time, and pushing it towards the top. You may find
something like the handle of a large wooden spoon is useful to push
it in firmly. Finish most of the stuffing when the hole is still big
enough to get your fingers in, then complete it just before you sew
up the hole at the bottom.

Using white yarn.
Ch 3, work 9 hdc into 1st ch, join with ss into 1st hdc, FO, leaving a

Or cut circles out of white felt approx. 20mm across, and snip a
small hole in the centre.
