Since finishing my giant squid, I’ve been looking for interesting but easy needlework projects. I made some more crocheted owls but got bored. (Note to self: if you’ve memorized the pattern, you might want to move on to something else.) I got out my copy of Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec and made a bunch of things I haven’t tried before. Here are a few of them.
First up was chickens. They were cute and fun (and TINY!), so I made several.
Then I tried some other “natural” knits: a pear and a cactus. The pattern has eyes on all these little things, even the inanimate stuff, but I don’t always like how they look, so I left them off of these two. My pear is anemic-looking because my collection of cotton yarns didn’t have the right shade of green in it.
Last of all, I finally made one of the projects from the holiday chapter: the Christmas tree. It’s too tiny to be a traditional ornament, so I think I’ll put a pin on the back so I can wear it next December.
What are your favorite cute knit and crochet projects?
