I finished the Totoro hat, sans embroidery, on Friday evening. But I think the ears are coming off. I learned about alpaca yarn with this knit, and what I learned is that it's crazy soft, crazy hairy, and crazy floppy.
Not so good for stand-up ears on a Totoro.
What I'm thinking: I'll reknit the Totoro bonnet in superwash wool (I have some nice blue that will work) and take the ears off this one, then stick a flower or maybe some smaller (bear?) ears on it instead. Another option is to call these bunny ears, and embroider the cap to match.. what do you guys think?
