Introducing the Barnyarn Bunch!

🎵 Here’s the story of a big red barn⁣⁣
Who was hungry for some animals to munch⁣⁣
But he didn’t really want to eat his buddies⁣⁣
That’s the way they all became the Barnyarn Bunch 🎵⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The Barnyarn Bunch pattern collection is now available as a PDF download! Find it in the Mochimochi Shop and also on Ravelry.

In addition to patterns for a tiny pig, tiny cow, tiny horse, and tiny chicken, you get modifications for a tiny donkey and a penny-pinching piggy bank who will help you save up to TWO pennies. (You’re probably feeling richer already just reading about it.)

This is one of the most involved pattern collections I’ve put together, and I’m so excited to have it out in the world! Big thanks to my tech editor, Marilyn Passmore, and to my testers Amanda, Dorien, Rebecca, Lalie, and Linda.

Keep an eye out for more fun Barnyarn animations coming to Instagram and Facebook!

The Tiny Alpaca Kit is Now a Feliciti kit!


I got some bad news earlier this year: The alpaca blend yarn that I’ve used to knit tiny alpaca since 2015 was discontinued! Not only was I making all my alpaca out of this yarn, it was also the yarn that I included in all of my tiny alpaca kits. 😢

BUT THEN in April an opportunity presented itself: the perfect local source appeared at YarnCon: Deitricks’ Alpaca Ranch from Prophetstown, IL!

Just look at this handsome herd! (And if you live in the area, you can meet them: Deitricks offers plenty of ways you can commune with alpaca, from summer camps, to birthday parties, to yoga!)

Tracy had nine skeins of the softest, fluffiest fingering-weight alpaca yarn made from the fleece of a beautiful alpaca named Feliciti that she let me take home.

(Can’t you just feel the softness through the screen?)

So for a limited time, the Tiny Alpaca Kits available in my shop are tiny Feliciti kits! (As before, the yarn for the face and legs is Cascade Heritage, a wool/nylon blend, which contrasts nicely with the fluffy alpaca.)

We have enough Feliciti yarn to make about 90 kits for now, and this is a supply that may or may not be replenished with the same lovely yarn. So get yours now! UPDATE: I just got 11 more skeins, yay!

Each kit contains the intermediate-level pattern (hello, short rows!) and enough yarn and stuffing to make 2 tiny alpaca. 🦙❤️🦙

And of course, the pattern is also available as a PDF download.

Cozy Squozy Cats!

Just in time for the hottest days of summer, Cozy Squozy Cats are ready to be knit by you!

These pocket-sized cats are the purfect fit for their containers: knit a cat in a box 📦, a cat in a life preserver 🍩, a cat in a bag 👜, and (because cats are weird) a cat in a corset 🥜!

They’re just as cute outside of their containers, too!

The intermediate-level pattern collection is now available as a download in the Mochimochi Shop or via Ravelry.

Plus, box cat, bag cat, and life preserver cat are also available as kits! Each comes with a pattern and enough yarn and stuffing to make one cozy cat. 🧶

As Soupy will tell you, July is an excellent month for getting cozy.

(For the record, this is NOT the yarn that goes in the kits!)

More cozy cat GIFs are coming soon—watch for them on Instagram!
