Tiny Baby Bunnies Contest!

UPDATE: Congratulations to our winners!

I’m so excited to announce a new springtime Mochimochi contest sponsored by Koigu!


It’s getting to be that time of year when Tiny Baby Bunnies multiply and melt the world with cuteness! We want to see your cutest, cleverest, and most creative uses of the Tiny Baby Bunnies, a free pattern from Mochimochi Land.

Tiny Baby Bunnies might be tiny, but they can do many things! Your bunnies might be hidden for strangers to find, a la the Tiny Bunnies Movement, or they might re-enact a scene from history, or they might even demonstrate math problems. Show us what your bunnies are doing using one photo or a series of photos uploaded to the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group with the photos tagged bunnycontest12.

The top three winners will each receive a basketful of lovely, colorful Koigu KPM yarn—perfect for knitting Tiny Baby Bunnies!

Deadline for entries is April 2.




Knitters from all countries are welcome to enter! To be eligible, your photo(s) must contain at least one Tiny Baby Bunny made from the free Mochimochi Land pattern. The pattern may be modified, but not beyond recognition from the original design.

How to enter

Simply add your photo(s) to the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group, and tag them with bunnycontest12. If you don’t have a Flickr account, it is free and easy to register (though we recommend signing up as soon as possible, because it takes a little time for your account to be approved for sharing photos in a group).

Your entry can be a single photo or a series of photos, but please limit the total number of photos to 6. Photos entered in this contest will not be eligible for the 2012 Mochimochi Photo Contest this fall.


Winners will be picked by us at Mochimochi Land, but the Flickr pool is open to be seen by everyone. We will be focusing on creativity in this contest, and not just looking for pretty images.


The last day to enter the contest is April 2, 2012. We’ll announce the winners shortly thereafter!


The top three winners each get a basketful of yarn provided by Koigu, with the grand prize big basket going to the first place winner. Thank you Koigu!

  1. Oooh, yay! The yarn is gorgeous! It would be perfect for my Beekeeper’s Quilt too!

  2. Can we submit more than one photo? (individual ones that aren’t part of a series)

  3. I’m trying to make the Tiny Computer from Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi and the instructions you put for the kitchener stitch confuse me. Can you put photos the steps so I can see what you mean?

  4. I’m a beginning knitter, and my cousin got me your teeny-tiny mochimochi book. The patterns are so cute! I would really like to try one. Which do you think is the easiest?

  5. That’s great, Jackie! The patterns in the book are all about the same skill level, but if you’re a beginner with double-pointed needles, then I recommend practicing with them first using a larger number of stitches on your needles. Using thicker yarn and bigger needles will also probably make them a bit easier starting out.

    I hope you enjoy it! If you have any other questions, you can email me at info@mochimochiland.com.

  6. OMFG!! i love them i would use them in a lot of ways !! awww the make me feel ..idk! : )

  7. This is so exciting! I’m glad the bunnies knit up fast because I don’t have any just lay around. :)

    To bad my anti-virus won’t let me open up the Koigu website.

  8. can you make a contest were you knit something on straight needles? im not very good on dpns

  9. You can use other patterns in combination with the Tiny Baby Bunnies pattern, but there does need to be at least one bunny made from the Tiny Baby Bunnies pattern in the photo. Good question!

  10. I just found your website and love it!

    Is this contest for 2012 or did I somehow surf onto an old post? The deadline says April 2, 2011. Should that be 2012??

  11. Any chance you could expand the contest to include the Tiny Easter Bunnies from the Teeny Tiny MochiMochi book?! Pretty pretty please with a cherry on top? :)

  12. Jodi – this contest is just for the Tiny Baby Bunnies, but you’re welcome to incorporate the Tiny Easter Bunny into your photo, or if you just want to submit a photo of the Easter bunny, it will be eligible for our next big photo contest in the fall!

  13. Hi, Anna, how will you notify the winners? Also, I entered four photos, but for some reason they’re not showing up yet. I’m fairly certain I did it the right way, and I know I tagged them properly. In the event that they don’t show up before April 2, could I possibly email them to you? Thanks!

  14. Rachel – Great that you’re entering! I just checked, and I think your photos are showing up for me, but just to be sure, you can email me the links to your photos (to info@mochimochiland.com) – I wouldn’t want to miss them!

    We’ll contact the winners via Flickr, and we’ll also announce them here on the blog.

  15. She doesn’t know how to knit and wants to know if she can adapt the pattern to crochet.

    Je ne sais pas, Sonia, mais les instructions permett vous adapter le motif si les lapins resemblent le photo. Bon chance! Pardon, Francais n’est pas ma premier langue.




    Je ne sais pas tricoter, j’aimerais savoir si on peux adapter les petits lapins au crochet ?

  16. Hi Anna! I’m having the same problem Rachel had with her bunny photos; I’m pretty sure I enteres them correctly, but I can’t see them in the mochimochi flockr pool. In case they don’t show up, can I email them to you?

  17. JUST made it in! With only a couple minutes to spare….nothing like waiting until the last minute!
