Studio Ghibli Boh Door Stopper (Free Crochet Pattern)

In case you haven’t seen this Japanese animated film, named “Spirited Away”, Boh was a large baby, I mean really HUGE, then one day he got shrank by his aunt and turned into a small grey mouse-like creature. After I have made the No-Face door stopper, No-Face looked so lonely standing by the door itself. Therefore, I planned to make it some friends, Boh & Ootori- Sama.
