About

Welcome to Mojo Yarn Crafts - an Etsy shop focused on creating handmade crocheted gifts and collectibles. Although the word Mojo brings forth images of wizards, spells, or magical powers, for us, it's much simpler.

MoJo Yarn crafts is a mother/daughter duo: Mo = Monika and Jo = Johanna. However, perhaps there IS more to the name than meets the eye. There is something to be said about taking bits of yarn, adding a bit of love, time, and talent, and turning that into handmade, unique gifts.

Johanna's mom, Monika, learned to crochet when she was a little girl in Germany. Fast forward some years - Monika still loves crocheting but turned her attention from doilies to handmade dolls. Her attention to detail, patience, and absolute skill results in handmade dolls that are both exquisite to look at yet completely huggable to the touch. It's easy to imagine a…

MoJo Yarn crafts is a mother/daughter duo: Mo = Monika and Jo = Johanna. However, perhaps there IS more to the name than meets the eye. There is something to be said about taking bits of yarn, adding a bit of love, time, and talent, and turning that into handmade, unique gifts.

Johanna's mom, Monika, learned to crochet when she was a little girl in Germany. Fast forward some years - Monika still loves crocheting but turned her attention from doilies to handmade dolls. Her attention to detail, patience, and absolute skill results in handmade dolls that are both exquisite to look at yet completely huggable to the touch. It's easy to imagine a child's face light up when they open up the package, and yet, it's easy to imagine the same child bringing their life-long companion to college or new home.

Johanna's love for crochet is much more recent. Remembering the fundamentals that her mother taught her all those years ago, she really became enamored of the craft through watching countless YouTube tutorials. Although she can read patterns, she responds more to visual instruction.

Johanna's first love in crochet is the granny square - it's the stitch pattern that she goes back to time and time again. She loves the easy nature of the stitch, the endless color combinations, and yet the timelessness of it. She's branched out into other areas of crochet and enjoys creating her own designs, but still comes back to the granny square time and time again.

Crocheting is creating art that is both functional and lovable, touchable yet purposeful. My mother and I started Mojo Yarn Crats as a landing place for our creations and designs. This journey is several years in the making and although scary and intimidating, it allows us to share our gifts with you. We hope you enjoy the journey with us....
