Being my daughter's 15th birthday and her relentless nagging for a Totoro I came upon a pattern for one here:
Thank you Angry Angel for posting so a great pattern! This is an easy pattern to follow and I really enjoyed making it. My daughter loved it and the next day informed me that I forgot the whiskers and 4 more ^ on his belly. LOL!
Here it is complete made out of Red Heart medium worsted yarn.
Bothered me so much that I did not do it right so I had to fix. She should like it much better now.
