Knitting Mochimochi: 20 Super-Cute Strange Designs for Knitted Amigurumi (Google eBook)
Toys, people! Who doesn't love toys? They make you smile, give you something to squeeze and hug, and can even sit on the couch and watch TV with you. But could the toy be a couch, or an old-fashioned television? Is that too weird? Not if the toy is mochimochi, the super-cute and strange knitted toys author Anna Hrachovec created after fallingi n love with the bizarre character designs that are popular in Japan.
A mochimochi can be anything, from fearsome baby gators to pigs with beehive hairdos, from the toe-nibbling monster slippers to an assortment of itty-bitty hamsters, micro mountains, and human beans complete with comb-overs!
And what knitter doesn't need a diversion from the usual socks, hats, and scarves? Many of these toys take less than an hour to make. Don't worry, even a beginner can learn to knit mochimochi. If your toy comes out a little lumpy, it'll only add to its personality!
Whether it's a bite-free bed bug, a smiling smokestack, or a grouchy couch--these 20 toys are quirkier than teddy bears but every bit as adorable.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

So far I've made a pig with wigs and the pocket protectors. So cute, and the patterns were easy to follow. I've learned new things from doing this, specifically how to perfect my finishing. That was a bit of a weakness before and will be SO helpful when I make other toys in the future. Read full review

I wouldn't have bought this full price, honestly. I wanted it, but not that badly for all it is. But it was on clearance and I had a double discount day at work, so I did. Finally getting around to looking at it.
