And there it is, the fourth pattern of my Studio Ghibli hexagon crochet series: No-face. You will know this character from Spirited away (Amazon link) for sure. It’s such a great movie! I have watched it so many times but I can’t get enough of it. Another one of my most favorite Studio Ghibli movies. Yes I know, I use to say this about so many Ghibli movies. (^_^)#
Now as there is only Calcifer left to post a pattern of it I might take a little break to finish my Mononoke hexagon first. I already have a plan for doing a hexagon of the Cat bus from Totoro! But first things first.
I thought I wouldn’t make it to publish another pattern this week but it’s so much fun sharing the Ghibli hexagon patterns. I know that some of you have been waiting for this one the most. So as I didn’t want to keep you on tenterhooks I changed the order in which I wanted to proof read and publish my patterns. Have fun crocheting your cute Jiji hexagon! ♡
The second pattern of my Studio Ghibli themed hexagon series is online and I picked another easy one, the Soot Sprite!
The only more time consuming part in this is the additional round which is giving the edge a neat fluffy look. But I dare to say that the Soot Sprite is more quick to crochet than Totoro.
I still love to hear about your suggestions. Which Studio Ghibli character would you love to be added to this series? Just tell me in the comments! I’ve got some suggestions via ravelry and that’s why I will add Cat Bus from My neighbor Totoro (Amazon link) to my to do list. Another suggestions was Haku from Spirited away (Amazon link) but this will be a tricky one to put into a hexagon. But I will try my best anyway! (^_^)#
The first pattern of my Studio Ghibli themed hexagon series is online and it is … Totoro!
It’s so much fun creating these hexagons. I love to think about your suggestions. Which Studio Ghibli character would you love to be added to this series? Just tell me in the comments! (^_^)
The next one will be No-face I guess. Or maybe the Soot Sprite? Well, we will see. I already took photos of all of the existing hexagons so this shouldn’t be the problem.
If you have probably followed my Instagram account or looked at my projects on ravelry you already know that I’m working on some Studio Ghibli themed crochet hexagons. Hexagons are a great base to make a blanket, table runner, pillow, wall hanging and more. I didn’t finish all of them yet but as I’ve got a handful of hexagons done already I thought it’s the right time to start publishing them here. And as they are still in the making, you have the chance to suggest your favorite Studio Ghibli characters. (^_^)
What I’ve made already is Totoro, No-face (Spirited away), Soot sprite (Spirited away, My neighbor Totoro), Jiji (Kiki’s delivery service) and Calcifer (Howls moving castle) – just his mouth has to be done. On my to do list for the next ones are San (Princess Mononoke), Forest spirit (Princess Mononoke) and Ponyo.
All of my hexagons do have this simple base pattern for crocheting hexagons in common: Crochet Fundamentals: How to Crochet a Hexagon by envatotuts+
And another birthday gift: Super cute Poogie from the Monster Hunter (Amazon link) franchise. As you were probably following the E3 news feeds you might have got excited about Capcom announcing an open world Monster Hunter for PlayStation 4 as well as for PC. Anyway, I’m way more exited for Monster Hunter Stories (Amazon link) getting released for Nintendo 3DS this summer but hubby is super-hyped about getting his hands on a big Monster Hunter again.

Late spring is the beginning of the birthday season. So there are usually a lot of gifts to crochet. For this reason I’ve made another baby Groot Amigurumi by combining two patterns. By the way, my little Groot is posing in front of my lovely and strong growing Wasabi plant. Haven’t tried to make something out of it’s beautiful leafs yet. I’m open for suggestions if someone has got some experience cooking with. ^_^
