Super-Scary Mochimochi Preview: Toaster Ghost

What happens when you shove one too many frozen waffles into your rickety old toaster? You’ll end up with a big burned mess! Then once the smoke clears, you may find yourself confronted by…


Toaster Ghost!

It’s the next preview from my upcoming book of monster knits, Super-Scary Mochimochi! (And that awesome photo is by Brandi Simons, of course!)

I have a special love for anthropomorphic knitted appliances, so I made sure to find a way to fit an undead one among the creepy characters in this book. Toaster Ghost is an interactive toy, complete with slots that you can place burned pieces of toast in!


The pattern uses a number of techniques to get just the right shaping, and I think it’s a fun, challenging project for intermediate knitters.

Toaster Ghost would make a lovely companion piece to TV Guy from Knitting Mochimochi or even Flushie! Now I just need to design a knitted refrigerator, and you’ll never have to leave your craft room…

Super-Scary Mochimochi is now available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Starting September 18th, it will be in local yarn stores throughout the US, and signed copies will be available from the Mochimochi Shop too.


One more Super-Scary preview is coming up in a couple weeks, so stay tuned!

  3. I love the idea of red eyes, Patti! I don’t know why, but I seem to be smitten with basic black. But I hope to see red on yours!

  4. Why are there disruptions of the shadow in the second picture like someone has used a brush in Photoshop to remove sections of the shadow?

  5. Oh my goodness this is absolutely adorable. You continue to impress me with your vision and great imagination. Can’t wait to see the whole book!
