Some presents, part 1

Finally I can start posting some of my latest finished knittings! Here's at first a Totoro hat that I made for my lovely little godson:

Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä
Needles: 3,5 mm

I actually made it already during the summer when I had lots of time to knit. But now during the autumn when I've been watching him grow really fast, I've been afraid it'll be too small, even though I made the biggest size available! And, well, he did grow too fast. I just hope the hat will stretch a bit.

I also had the time to finish a phone cover for a friend. He just got a new phone with a big touch screen, so he wanted something to protect it from scratches.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Novita Tennessee
Needles: 2 mm

I decided to improvise the pattern, and it wasn't even that hard. I just started with an invisible figure 8 -cast on with 13 + 13 stitches, and then increasing 2 stiches on both sides. After that, I knitted in stockinette stitch until it was big enough to fit the phone. 


  1. Hehe, jag kom först att tänka på Totoro när jag såg mössan, fastän det inte liknar Totoro helt! :D

  2. Original mössan hade en helt klar Totoro, men jag bestämde mig sen för att göra en lite modifierad version :) Synd bara att den blev lite för liten. Kanske den skulle töja lite mer om man sprättade bort fodret...

  3. Älskar Totoro-mössan :D Härlig film!
