HandMade: The Totoro Inspired Crochet Sweater

Hello and Happy Thursday! Here is my latest completed project, well one of them ha! From last weeks, 'What's On My Hook?' It is my Totoro inspired crochet sweater top in a lovely shade of pale pink! I chose this graphic because I love love love Hayao Miyazaki animated films, Studio Ghibli for life! I'd love to create a collection inspired by those films, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away.. Gah, I could go on!

Whenever I am creating these graphic pieces, I truly do have a handful of doubts whether or not it is going to produce the image I am attempting to portray. Which is a always gonna be something that is going to occur when you are creating it the first time. I love the discovery, I must admit, how else am I going to learn, if I don't try it out! Which is the main reason why I create these pieces. 

The Yarn I used: Pink/Grey/White/Sky Blue/Black/ Red Heart Yarn

The Hook I used: K/101/2-6.50MM
The Pattern I used: Experimental: My Own!


  1. I am so impressed by this! I can't believe this was done without a pattern.


  2. TOTORO!!! This is one of my all-time favorite movies! <3 I don't knit or crochet, and projects like this blow my mind. Well done!

  3. I know you made me one ;)

    This is like a throwback rpg version of a chibi totoro. I lurves it. Gives it a more authentic feel.

    1. Of course dude, made us matching ones lol..
