Tiny Things Collection 5

Ann was inspired by Hello Kitty, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, and Dr Seuss to create Mochimochi Land, a world of knitted toys that she’s shown in art galleries around the world. She’s published several knitting pattern books – Knitting Mochimochi, Super-Scary Mochimochi, and Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi – so that we can knit our own tiny creations!

Huge & Huggable Mochimochi

In her latest book – Huge & Huggable Mochimochi – Anna has played with the scale of her work and created super-sized toys. She’ll have samples from the book for us to see.
