It’s an indisputable fact: Everything is cuter in miniature. And while it’s true that knitted toys are cute to begin with, they’re even more adorable when they’re tiny.

In Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi, designer Anna Hrachovec presents more than 40 patterns for her quirkiest and most endearing knitted Tinys — three-dimensional animals, objects, toys, and people. Tinys make cool gifts for any occasion, and are some of the fastest, easiest projects you’ll ever knit. They can be turned into pins, magnets, Christmas ornaments—anything that could use some scale-model silliness. So pick up your sock yarn and size 1 needles and get started—you’re certain to make even a grouch giggle like a schoolgirl!

Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi supports the fact that "everything is more fun in miniature." The idea started out as a whim by the author to see how many tiny things she could knit in a month. Her tiny creations delighted her blog visitors and she was on a roll after that! Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi has a wide variety of creations: animals, food, nature, people, holiday designs and more. I noticed that all of the minis in MochiMochi land have eyes, which just makes them extra cute! All of the projects actually use very simple knitting techniques and are each designed to be completed in less than one hour with a very small amount of yarn. If you are comfortable with double pointed needle knitting, then the projects should be no problem for you. But if you are new to knitting, there are complete, illustrated instructions in the back of the book that teach the basics for novices. After becoming familiar with those skills, you should be able to move on and try the tiny toys. The book also explains how to make the patterns larger or even smaller (and cuter!). All the projects are adorably presented in charming settings, with witty and humorous descriptions of each. For instance, tiny corn is "genetically modified for cuteness" and the mini forest "can't see itself for the trees!" There are delightful little reindeer, ghosts, bunnies, and even a barrel full of monkeys with teensy bananas! A chapter in Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi has suggestions for what you can do with these little delights, from tree ornaments to jewelry, which give you the opportunity to cute-ify all kinds of things!

This book is awesome for knitters who like tiny things, or just want to try something new. This was my second knitting book I got, and it is, by far, my absolute favorite! The style of the project uses double-pointed knitting needles, and you knit in the round. This book gives instructions at the beginning and end of the book for knitting, so you don't have to worry if you just learned to knit. The patterns all include eyes! They are very simple and quick to make, even for a sort-of-slow knitter like me. This book has categories like: Tiny Foods, Tiny Animals, and things like that. I love this book so much!!! :)
