Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi: More Than 40 Itty-Bitty Minis to Knit, Wear, and Give (Paperback)
It's an indisputable fact: Everything is cuter in miniature. And while it's true that knitted toys are cute to begin with, they're even more adorable when they're tiny. In Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi, designer Anna Hrachovec presents more than 40 patterns for her quirkiest and most endearing knitted Tinys -- three-dimensional animals, objects, toys, and people. Tinys make cool gifts for any occasion, and are some of the fastest, easiest projects you'll ever knit. They can be turned into pins, magnets, Christmas ornaments--anything that could use some scale-model silliness. So pick up your sock yarn and size 1 needles and get started--you're certain to make even a grouch giggle like a schoolgirl.
