Fox in Totoro Suit – Crochet Pattern

Photo Principale

Story of the creation

In February 2017, a friend asked me to crochet something related either to the foxes or to the Studio Ghibli universe. At that time, I sometimes saw "Pikachu Totoro" amigurumis on the web so I suggested a version with the fox instead of the Pikachu and it really thrilled him !

I inspired myself from various photos and images and that's how the Fox in Totoro Suit was born !

Unfortunately, things didn't go quite as planned and this "friend" never came to get his little plush toy. As I had no particular affinity with foxes and "My neighbor Totoro" (I have never seen it), I put it on sale on Etsy and, a few months later, it found an owner !

When I merged my website and my blog on WordPress in May 2019, I reworked the graphic aspect of it. So I naturally redesigned the patterns in PDF format, which now only concerns paid patterns, so that it visually looks like the website. The format has also changed, from a double-page A5 to a standard A4, more practical and easy to print at home !

By buying the pattern on Ravelry, you will be able to download several versions : the classic version with many pictures and the "Eco-Friendly" version with written explanations only : no pictures, images or colors. Both versions are available in French and English.

The classic version contains 10 pages with more than fifty step-by-step pictures to help you with the more complex steps.

The instructions are detailed row by row to make it easier for you to find your way around.

If you want to print the pattern, I suggest you to print the "Eco-Friendly" version and refer to the pictures of the classic version on your pc, tablet or mobile when necessary.

When printing, please tick "Fit" instead of "Actual size" in the dialog box.

Caution : to open these PDF, you will need Adobe Reader.
