I actually finished knitting it last month just before my departure. It was a cold day and I wore it with an anxious mind in Tokyo. I can easily remember that day. The sky was gray, strong winds were blowing and people were walking fast in dark colored winter coats..

Making a gift for S

One day, I made a gift for S. She loves “Chibi totoro” from the animated fantasy film “My neighbor Totoro”, which was directed in 1988 by Hayao Miyazaki. So I looked for a chibi-totoro pattern on Ravelry and found “Chibi Totoro Toy” by brella. Also I made a beret and cowl.

Firstly I sketched Chibi totoro for getting a picture of it. Then I went to a yarn shop and got soft merino yarn and kid silk mohair yarn. I knitted it with two strands of yarn held together. Soft merino yarn was really soft and Kid silk mohair yarn added silky and slightly fluffy texture on it. This project was so much fun! Actually I think her looks and personality are pretty much like Chibi totoro. I found it during making this project. Hope she will like it!

少し前に、北欧で新たな挑戦をしているSさんに贈り物を!と思いたって、彼女の大好きなちびトトロ&マフラー&ベレー帽を作りました。

ちびトトロは raverly のサイトにある “Chibi Totoro Toy” のパターンを使用しています。そこに、かぎ編みで小さな足を編みました。

肌ざわりの柔らかいメリノの毛糸に、ほのかにきらりと光沢のあるキッドモヘア・シルクの毛糸を合わせました。編み上りは、ふわふわと少し起毛していて、シルクの手触りの良さもほのかに感じます。

まずは、雰囲気を把握しよう!と簡単なスケッチから始めて、実際に手を動かしながら作ってみると、ちびトトロって彼女の雰囲気にすごく似てる!と気付きました。

これから冬へと寒くなる季節に、どこかほっと温かい存在になるといいな。
