My Scandinavian take on possibly the coolest anime character ever! Feel free to add an umbrella/giant leaf/little girl.

DifficultyYou will need:
3.5 mm crochet hookWorsted yarn in two colours
1
 Polyester stuffing (fibrefill)Tapestry needleA little white or off-white feltBlack embroidery flossI decided to give my Totoro a Scandinavian feel, using muted blue andoatmeal yarn. Of course you could use any Totoro colour – brown, blue orgrey. I used Laura Harding ‘Thistle’.
Techniques and Abbreviations

 SC increase (SCinc)Slip stitch (SL)Stitch (ST)Basic sewingAs with all amigurumi, the rounds are
worked in a spiral

crochet quite tightly

Please note, I use American terms throughout (despite being British). If you are British,
Single Crochet 
(SC) is
Double Crochet 
(DC), and
Worsted yarn 
is
Double Knit 
yarn.

Magic Circle 
(aka
Magic Ring 
) tutorials can be found online, or you can just Ch 2 and SC theappropriate amount into the chain furthest from the hook (although this method is morelikely to leave a hole).

I recommend
Invisible Decreases 
where-ever possible. Again, tutorials are available online

Pattern
The pattern is worked in several pieces, starting with two circles whichbecome the feet. I’ve tried to note at which stage you need to addembroidery, etc, to keep things as simple as possible, but be aware that youcan add the arms and tail either
before 
or
after 
you stuff him. If you wantto add them before, I’d skip ahead and make them first. Also, don’t worry ifhe’s not looking too great at the beginning – there is a moment in thisproject where everything will suddenly come together (hopefully!).Before you start, save a length of body-coloured yarn to sew the patternsonto Totoro’s chest later.
Feet
(Make 2)1 MC 62 (SCinc, SCinc, SC) x 2 (10 ST)3 (SC, SCinc, SC, SCinc, SC) x 2 (14 ST)FO
For the 
second 
foot, don’t fasten off – go straight into joining the feet together and making the body.
Body
1 SC around both feet (28 ST)
To do this, make the first stitch into the foot your hook isn’t through, in the stitch you would have used if you were continuing around that foot (i.e. in the first stitch next to where you fastened off). If this sounds completely mad and you can’t work it out, have a look at the picture below. The hook is in position to make the first stitch of this round.
