Knitting Pattern: Totoros II Seven Years

Knitting Pattern: Totoros II Seven Years


This is a pattern for a hand knit sweater for a seven/eight year old boy or girl.

This is my second Totoro inspired sweater. We just saw My Neighbor Totoro in the theatre with two of our granddaughters and I loved it more this time! On the front the three Totoros are sitting on a tree branch over a pond, with greenery and sky and clouds behind them. On the back the Totoros are stretching to make the seeds grow into trees, under a moonlit sky. The mirrored sleeves show the blue and white Totoros gathering acorns into a bag and gathering blueberries from a bush. The wrists and hem have trim patterns of acorns on a blue background and red mushrooms against a lighter blue sky. The neck trim is dark blue and variegated blue stripes.

Pattern has written directions and full color charts to enlarge. The pattern assumes a good knowledge of knitting, or at least an adventurous spirit and a knitting guidelines book.
