Synopsis

Toys to Scare You Silly!
What creatures lurk in the darkest shadows of Mochimochi Land? Only the most adorable assortment of knitted monsters, such as tiny vampire brats, a teenage werewolf, and a miniature gang of killer bees. They may be more cute than scary, but try not to bruise their egos. These toys think they’re terrifying!
You’ll find 20 patterns for big beasties, tiny critters, and even goblins that will gobble up your iPad, all rendered in Anna Hrachovec’s quirky signature style. Or create your own mix ʼn’ match monster with more than 20 customizable body parts and features that you can assemble any way you want. After all, nothing is scarier than a clever knitter armed with yarn, needles, and a wild imagination.
Whether you’re already a devoted fan of mochimochi, love scary stuff, or just need a good laugh, Super-Scary Mochimochi offers everything you need to knit your own world of creatures that will go bump in the night in the cutest way possible.
