“Anna Hrachovec is a toy designer and artist living in Chicago. With her knitted characters and installations, Anna embraces familiar cultural touchstones – from everyday objects to fairy tales and urban myths – and twists them around with playfulness and a few carefully placed stitches. Her ever-expanding imaginary world, Mochimochi Land, is a squishy realm of chaos whose mixture of humor and pathos reflects our own reality.

With her knitting website and pattern books, Anna has inspired knitters worldwide to build on her designs and create worlds of their own. Her character-based art has been exhibited in the US, Germany, The Netherlands, and Japan”.  [From the artist’s website / Du website de l’artiste].
