Back in April, I went crazy knitting little things using the patterns in Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec. I made so many things that I didn’t post them all at the time. Here are more of the adorable patterns from the book.
I’m most attracted to the animals in the book. I know I shared them before, but here are more chickens, which I really enjoy making. Their shape appeals to me.
I also made a lion which proved hard to photograph. Here’s my best shot:
The book has patterns of other things, including food, people, and inanimate objects. I usually avoid food, since I have so many issues with food sensitivities, but I couldn’t resist the baked potato.
I also made two of the inanimates for a friend. One is a plane (she is an aerospace engineer) and the other, a tiny tropical island (she loves to travel).
All the patterns in Hrachovec’s book have eyes stitched on them because “the only thing cuter than a mini knitted forest is a mini knitted forest with twenty-eight little eyes looking back at you”. Most of the time, the eyes do make the inanimate stuff even cuter, but I left them off the island. I felt like they made it harder to tell what you were looking at.
