Super-Scary Mochimochi is Anna Hrachovec's third book where she shares patterns for adorable knitted creatures. This new book came out just in time for me to knit up some scary, cute fun for Halloween and it has over 20 ideas to make. I had a hard time getting the book away from my daughters, they sit and squee over all of the "cute and creepy creatures". The author has a really great, quirky style and she turns out darling monsters, werewolves, spiders, minitaurs and more. It's such a modern, colorful take on an age old craft and if you are new to knitting (or just want to brush up on it, like me) there is a large help section in the front with all of the basics. Super-Scary Mochimochi suggests knitting the characters in the round to allow for minimal seams and recommends double pointed needles for this. There are lots of large photos showing this and other techniques in detail. One of the best things about these knitted cuties is that they give me a way to use up my leftover yarn, as they all only take a small amount to complete, especially the teeny ones. Also, if you use thinner yarn and needles, you'll produce smaller beasties, with the opposite being true for larger ones. I enjoyed the fun Mix and Match section, where she breaks down the various parts and lets us decide what kind of monster we want to create and also get to add fangs, a mustache or even a clown nose to our creations. The Mama Bear Cave is just delightful, with Mama Bear holding her tiny cubs in her mouth-cave and the Zombie Sleepover is just freakishly adorable, but I started out with the Bitty Witches, because I thought they would be a fun decoration for the trick or treaters. I really love Super-Scary Mochimochi and I'm looking forward to see what else the author produces in the future.
