Huge & Huggable Mochimochi is Here!

I’m thrilled to say that my fourth book of knitting patterns, Huge & Huggable Mochimochi, is now in stores everywhere!


Now you too can knit up a gigantic roly-poly, a family of capybaras, a hungry monster bag, and many more supersized mochis.


Not only are they big, but these toys include a wide variety of fun knitting techniques, like bobbles, cables, colorwork, and unusual shaping. Don’t let the size fool you—these guys knit up quicker than you’d think with thick yarn and big needles! And several projects come with smaller versions, so you can make a little guy before tackling the main squeeze.

Buy a signed copy in the Mochimochi shop, get it from your local yarn store, or come to one of my upcoming book signings!

October 24th: Lion Brand Yarn Studio, NYC

And look who’s growing up fast!


That’s my niece Nora. Big thanks to my sister and her husband Nat for letting me borrow her cute face for the cover!

While I’m at it, huge thank-yous to my photographer Brandi Simons, to Sonnie and Sarah and the rest of our wonderful models; to the yarn companies who contributed their lovely products (Cascade, Lion Brand, Knit Picks, and Spud & Chloë); to all the test knitters who were involved in making the patterns user-friendly; to Marilyn, my excellent tech editor; to my editor Betty Wong and her assistant Caitlin Harpin for their great work and guidance; and to everyone else who was involved in making this book happen.

Now, let’s take over the world with MEGA MOCHIS!!
