This technique is a super easy way to bind off live stitches for a neat seam that grafts the stitches together. It’s a common knitting technique, but I’m sharing a tutorial of my own because my technique is different from most. (I don’t turn the knitting inside out first, because most of my patterns are constructed out of closed shapes that can’t be turned right side out again.)
The mystery kit is back! Through May 31st, buy two kits from the Mochimochi Shop and you’ll automatically receive a mystery kit for free!
What is a mystery kit? It’s a kit containing the pattern, yarn, and stuffing for an all-new tiny design. This is a new intermediate-level pattern that’s not available anywhere else right now! You’ll just need a set of size 1 double-pointed needles and a tapestry needle to get started.
Please note that the mystery kit AUTOMATICALLY COMES FREE with a purchase of 2 kits (or 2 books, or one kit and one book) through May 31—there’s no need to add it to your cart.
Want a hint? This year’s mystery is a design that’s been requested countless times, a special animal that will point you to your destiny…
When you receive yours, please keep it hush-hush if you can, so we can preserve the mystery through the end of the month!
Happy Earth Day to all those Earths out there! Oh yeah, there’s only one.
It’s funky fleece season again in Mochimochi Land! This year’s celebration is funkier and fleecier than ever.
If you haven’t seen it, check out the original Funky Fleece.
You can find patterns for tiny sheep and gnomes, plus tiny hand-knitted gnomes, in the shop!
Here’s a little behind the scenes shot of our set.
You may have noticed that mochimochiland.com has a new look! We were way overdue for a makeover—the last site redesign was way back in 2010! Before that, it looked something like this.
That was also back when I was designing cross stitch patterns! So we’ve come a long way.
One cool new feature I’d like to highlight in particular is the new community gallery, which features all the Instagram photos that you all have tagged #mochimochiland.
Also, in celebration of the new site, you can take 10% off all purchases from the shop with the code SAMEGREATTASTE through April 19th.
Also, there might be a few little kinks that we need to work out after the revamp, so thanks in advance for your patience and for getting in touch if you notice something awry.
A big thank you to Jenn Wong for making this website come true!
If you find yourself chasing a pot of gold around, it’s time for a drink of water.
Please watch my husband on TV tonight! John is hosting the new show The A.V. Club, airing Thursdays at 9pm on Fusion. It’s a smart show for pop culture lovers like you! I’m so excited I just had to knit something.
