Functional yet Huggable Art...

MoJo Yarn crafts is a mother/daughter duo: Mo = Monika and Jo = Johanna. We enjoy taking simple skeins of yarn, adding a bit of love, time, and talent and turning that into handmade, unique gifts to be enjoyed for years to come.

My mom, Monika, learned to crochet when she was a little girl in Germany. When I was a little girl, she taught me the skill but it never really took as I could only make simple chains of rope.

Fast forward twenty or so 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 meet their new friend, and yet, it's easy to imagine the same child bringing their life-long companion to college or new home.

My love for crochet is much more recent. Remembering the fundamentals that my mother taught me all those years ago, I really became enamored of the craft through watching countless YouTube tutorials a few years ago. Although I can read patterns, I respond more to visual instruction. My first love in crochet is the granny square - it's the stitch pattern that I go back to time and time again. I love the easy nature of the stitch, the endless color combinations, and yet the timelessness of it. I've branched out into other areas of crochet and enjoying creating my own designs, but still comeback 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 Crafts 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....
