Anna Hrachovec is a Chicago-based designer and artist who combines her passions for knitting and characters to create toys, installations and animations that excite people of all ages. What started out as Anna’s hobby in 2007 has grown over the years into a huge imaginary realm called Mochimochi Land – where a cast of creatures of all sizes and types play, fight and occasionally eat each other.

Anna has written five books of knitting patterns. Her debut picture book, Catside Up, Catside Down came out in September 2023.

In this exhibit Anna includes some of her earliest pieces, as well as more recent additions to Mochimochi Land. Animals, inanimate objects, and gnomes of all sizes join other knit creations in a unique display that is sure to delight you.
