This weekend I finished knitting my Totoros!


Very happy with the fit.

About eight rows in, I frogged back because I received an Instagram message from Kate Davies herself (!!) and I decided to leave my floats super long.

I included one pic from when I was carrying the floats and one where I wasn’t, and I think the latter looks much better. The fabric is a little uneven but I’m hoping it’ll block out.

Here’s the chart I made, adapted from KonaSF on Ravelry. I kept the stitch counts from size 8 in the pattern so I had 15 24-stitch repeats.

Now I just need to do the peeries above the Totoros, work the neckline and then do the finishing. I’m so excited about wearing this!
