Revue de presse

"Hrachovec takes the art of knitted toys in an unusual and unexpected direction in her first pattern collection. She includes the standard tiny, cute animals but also knitted mountains, UFOs, pencils, a pocket protector that is, literally, a pocket protector monster, and a creation she calls the 'Grouchy Couch.'" --Library Journal

Présentation de l'éditeur

Toys, people! Who doesn't love toys? They make you smile, give you something to squeeze and hug, and can even sit on the couch and watch TV with you. But could the toy be a couch, or an old-fashioned television? Is that too weird? Not if the toy is mochimochi, the super-cute and strange knitted toys author Anna Hrachovec created after fallingi n love with the bizarre character designs that are popular in Japan.

A mochimochi can be anything, from fearsome baby gators to pigs with beehive hairdos, from the toe-nibbling monster slippers to an assortment of itty-bitty hamsters, micro mountains, and human beans complete with comb-overs!

And what knitter doesn't need a diversion from the usual socks, hats, and scarves? Many of these toys take less than an hour to make. Don't worry, even a beginner can learn to knit mochimochi. If your toy comes out a little lumpy, it'll only add to its personality!

Whether it's a bite-free bed bug, a smiling smokestack, or a grouchy couch--these 20 toys are quirkier than teddy bears but every bit as adorable.

Mochimochi on Kindle 30 décembre 2010
Par Patty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I wanted to review this book as it appears on a Kindle for those wondering how it looks. I have been a knitter for over 40 years and am new to books on Kindle so I was a bit nervous about trying a instruction type book on Kindle. I have to say, I am so happy I chose to download this book! It took less than 30 seconds and is beautiful. I am off to knit my first little character. Go ahead! buy this.

MochiMochi doesn't disappoint 7 juillet 2010
Par S. Bertulli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was in a bookstore, and hadn't realized this book had been released yet, so I was very pleased to be able to buy it. I've already started on the Feet Eaters pattern (the main pattern on the cover of the book).

All of the patterns are incredibly cute, and the instructions for knitting said patterns are very clear, and concise. Lots of beautiful pictures to guide you along the way with construction for pieces that require it (such as the Feet Eaters).

Makes me glad I picked this book, instead of the one I originally went to the store to buy (which was *not* a knitting book)...

Good book for the money, and great patterns for toys and fun little things to decorate your home (or husband's desk at work) with.

A very useful and cute book 15 juillet 2010
Par A small bird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is full of great patterns for people who want to knit cute little critters for gifts (or for themselves). I love the color images inside, and the instructions are all clear and useful, and easy to follow. I could have done with more pictures occasionally, but it offers enough detail to let you make all the patterns without any problems at all.

I highly recommend this book.

Fun Amigurumi for Knitters 17 janvier 2011
Par Sunny Sewing Honeybee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've been a fan of Hrachovec's knits probably almost from the beginning of when she started her blog, and knew I'd purchase her book when she announced it was in the works. Her toys are amigurumi-style, though they utilize knitted stitches in the round, rather than the more commonly done crocheted toys. Many of them are really clever and even humorous, with an extra sprinkling of "cute."

The book begins with practical information, such as tools needed and how to seam toys together. One thing missing is information on mild machine felting. Many of the earlier patterns from her website utilize this method, and I personally like the results of using wool yarn and then lightly felting it. These toys, conversely, can be made with any type of yarn.

Most of the knits are "just for fun," although a few double as being practical, like a muff and slippers. "For fun" designs include a moose covered in little birds, bed bugs with knitted night caps, and a TV. My favorite is a couch. A few of the knits have urban themes: baby alligators (to fit in with the urban legend of them coming up from the sewer), a cityscape, and a smokestack complete with pollution emitting from it (complete with eyes, of course). If you follow the author's blog, you know she has lately started knitting the tiniest of things. In that vein, this book includes five "nano knits"--human beans, mountains, mushrooms, hamsters, and a little pencil. I uploaded an image of one of the "human beans" I made from the pattern. He's only a little over an inch tall! It looks as though the author's next book will be exclusively on the mini-knit subject.

To be honest, every time I knit one of these toys I ask myself, "What am I going to do with this now?" But they're so cute . . . it's hard to resist making more. I don't plan to make all the knits from this book (out of 20 patterns, I'm interested in possibly making and/or have made nine), but just in general appreciate having a full-color, glossy edition of some of this author's unique patterns. Why should crocheters have all the fun?

Cute & Clear, But Definitely NOT For Beginners 6 avril 2012
Par April L. Hamilton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've been knitting for about five years now, and have no difficulty with knitting in the round --- socks are one of my favorite projects. I've crocheted numerous Amigurumi too, and jumped at the chance to knit similarly small, whimsical toys.

The book's directions and photos make the techniques very clear, but that doesn't necessarily make them easy to follow. Managing to work with just 9 - 12 stitches cast on across three 7" double-pointed needles is an exercise in frustration (and dexterity - it feels like you're wrestling with a wooden spider that's fighting back), but MANY of the patterns here require you to do this. Working with small numbers of stitches is easy in crochet, but a real bear of a project when knitting in the round.

After a few false starts on other patterns in the book, I was able to tackle the slipper pattern without too much difficulty, but I wasn't ultimately happy with the results. The slippers are very cute, but not very functional, as the back part (that's supposed to fit around the heel) is loose and floppy when you try to walk around in the slippers. The pattern also requires some 'easing in' to fit the stuffed head to the toe area of the sole piece, and this makes it a little challenging to get the head piece seamed on without puckering anywhere around its edges.

I'm still giving the book 4 stars, because the patterns ARE very cute and original, and maybe if I were a MUCH more experienced (and exceedingly patient) knitter, I could've made more of the items in the book. It also includes some detailed instruction in seaming and a few special techniques, and I'll probably be referring to those parts of the book again in the future when working on other projects.
