Super-Scary Mochimochi and Sarcophacat

Just in time for Halloween is Anna Hrachovec’s fun new book, Super-Scary Mochimochi!  This is the 3rd book to Anna’s “Mochimochi” collection, and this time, she has turned her cute little plush knits, into toys that are creepy and spooky.  You’ll find pumpkins, vampires, spiders and more, amongst a crew of cute creatures turned scary.  There’s still plenty of time to make some of these adorable toys for yourself or someone you know before Halloween; we even have the pattern for you to make the super-scary Sarcophacat pictured above!

Anna was recently at our retail store, the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York City, for a meet and greet and book signing of Super Scary Mochimochi.  While she was here, Anna shared her inspiration behind her new book, and some of the extremely unique patterns featured in it with Patty Lyons, manager of the Studio.  Check out the video below for a sneak peak into the book and to hear about the mochimochi collection from the artist herself!

Interested in hearing more from Anna? Watch her first video at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, where she discusses how her mochimochi came to be.
