Knitting pattern: Totoro mittens
Recently I have been mesmerised by the new studio Ghibli film Ponyo, the work of anime genius Hayao Miyazaki. Miyazaki's films are pieces of animated magic and well worth casting your eyeballs at. As Ponyo is a bit too new for a wave of crafty creatures to appear from its underwater depths I thought I would share this pattern for Totoro mittens I found while we wait.
My Neighbour Totoro is the tale of two tiny girls and a giant rabbit/cat creature that lives in the woods nearby their new house. It has inspired these amazingly cute Norweigan Totoro mittens by Ravelry's Brella.
The pattern is free to member of mighty knitting social network site Ravelry, so you'll need to sign in to get your claws on it. Signing up is free and the site is amazing so quite frankly if you're a knitter and not on Ravelry already you certainly should be.
There are also tons of other Ghibli goodies on there too. So go wild with your Mayazaki makings.
