About

mochimochi_about

Mochimochi Land was launched in 2007 as a place where knitted toys and people can live together in a spirit of tolerance. You too can advance human-toy understanding by knitting a new friend!

annaThe characters that inhabit Mochimochi Land are original designs by Anna Hrachovec, a knitter who lives in Chicago. Anna finds inspiration in Hello Kitty, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, and illustrators like Dr Seuss and Mary Blair. Anna’s knitted toys have been seen on Nickelodeon, featured on The Martha Stewart Show (twice), and mentioned on Boing Boing, among other publications. She has written four books of patterns, with a fifth book coming in 2015.

The Mochimochi Shop features Anna’s books, kits, and downloadable knitting and cross-stitch patterns. Printed Mochimochi Land patterns and kits are also available for wholesale prices to retailers.

When she’s not designing patterns to share with fellow crafters, Anna creates character-based knitted art, which has been exhibited around the US, in Europe, and Asia. You can see her art at annahrachovec.com.
