About the Author

Anna Hrachovec launched Mochimochi Land (mochimochiland.com), a website and brand of knitted toy patterns, in early 2007. To design her toys, Anna draws inspiration from Japanese kawaii (cute) culture and children's illustrators such as Dr. Seuss. Her original knitted creations have been featured on The Martha Stewart Show and have been exhibited in galleries in New York, Seattle, San Francisco and Tokyo. In addition to her website, Anna maintains a blog (mochimochiland.com/weblog) and a Ravelry group for her fans (Mochimochi Land Lovers). Anna's first book of knitted toy patterns, Knitting Mochimochi, was published in 2010.

I just got this yesterday and I love it! I have her other bookKnitting Mochimochi: 20 Super-Cute Strange Designs for Knitted Amigurumi and they are both wonderful. This one has designs that are way tinier, though! It's so worth it. Her designs are adorable, well-done, and just too cute. The book itself is clever and visually pleasing, the directions are simple, and there are a lot of how-to pictures. I wish she had more books out!

I was so excited when I heard another Mochimochi Land book was being released, I preordered it, and I'm not disappointed. It's worth mentioning - because some people might not feel the same about it as I do - but some of the patterns in the book have been released previously in PDFs. I don't mind that at all, it gives me a hard copy of some patterns I already had in PDF form, along with new patterns.

There are plenty of new patterns too. I decided to knit the tiny mermaid first, and was surprised how quick and easy it was to knit. It had been a little while since I last knit a Mochimochi Land pattern (been busy with other things) so I had forgotten just how fun these little things are to make. One of my favorite things about Anna Hrachovec's patterns is how clear the instructions are, even for things like detail embroidery, and it's nice the instructions in this book are in keeping with that. Definitely recommend this book :)

I love this book! I've already made five little toys, and have countless requests pouring in :) Well written, good illustrations, and it includes all the little basics and background knowledge for the beginning knitter. The patterns are easy, if a little fiddly (but that is to be expected when working on something so small...) and they take such a small amount of yarn and time. There are so many cute patterns! This book has rocketed to my favorite knitting book in the couple of weeks I have owned it!

I ordered the digital version of this book and I absolutely love it! I've only had it a little over a week and have already knitted 4 items! All of them are cute, quick to knit, and a perfect way to use up little bits of yarn.
The book calls for fingering weight yarn and also lets you know you can knit them at other gauges. I knitted most of my projects at worsted weight - so adorable!
So far I've knitted the mermaid (love the seashell bikini top), the fish with bubbles, and some cupcakes.
Thanks for all the clever knitting ideas!

Knitting these little toys is like eating potato chips.. you can't stop at one.. you will want to keep going and going. At first I was not sure what to think when I tried knitting one of these tiny knits. I started with "Knitting Mochimochi" Anna's other book and was instantly hooked on knitting human beans. These little things are a lot of fun to make and don't fret if you don't have really thin yarn, go up to a size 2 or 3 needle and use a thicker yarn.. the items are still really cute and really small.. just not quite as small as when you use a size 1 needle. I have made these with up to a size 4 needle with a worsted weight yarn.. and the items are still cute and tiny. My 7 year old loves them.

I've made two of these tiny creations so far and everyone loves them. Good clear directions and illustrations. I did move up to size 3 DP needles and that worked fine. I'll be coming back to this book over and over as time passes.
We even put a little bird on the Christmas tree.

I love this book! I checked it out from my local library to flip through it. I haven't knitted in a while, and I had never used four double pointed knitting needles before. But the tiny mochimochi were too cute to resist! So I picked up some double pointed bamboo knitting needles from Amazon (Clover Takumi) and stopped by my local Joann's to grab some yarn, and started knitting.

The directions are amazingly clear, which is great for a beginner like me that constantly needs reassurance that what I'm doing is correct. I love that she has really clear pictures. However, I did have to check YouTube for some double pointed knitting tutorials, since I'm used to only knitting with two needles.

For absolute beginners, she has a "knitting essentials" section at the back of the book. Even though I'm somewhat familiar with knitting, I still found it very helpful.

I started with the chicken, the first project. It took an entire afternoon and I messed up a lot, but it was worth it. The body shape of the chicken is very forgiving. At the end of the day, I had a cute chicken keychain.

This book is perfect for people who have short attention spans (like me). The fact that you can have a finished project in your hands in a matter of hours is very cool. (My project-attention-span lasts only three days.)

OVERALL, highly recommended. Five stars for the crystal-clear directions, pictures, and five stars for the cute projects.

/\/\/\EDITED 8/28/2012/\/\/\

As another reviewer said, most of the legs/arms/tails are i-cords threaded through the body of the project. Since the stitches are so tiny, it's extremely difficult to get the i-cord through without fear of ripping the stitch or messing it up. I took one star off for this...I think it could be done in an easier way.
