I pre ordered this about two months before it came out. I was expecting to just see a few of some of Twinkie Chan's awesome items, but there are tons of her signature items. There are 20 patterns, most of them being scarfs that are made from small pieces that are crocheted together.
It includes three sections: Sweets things, Fruits and Veggies, and Savory stuff.
The patterns it includes are

Cupcake Scarf
Candy Button Scarf
Gingerbread Man Scarf (My favorite)
Lemon Coconut Cake Tissue Cozy
Rocket Popsicle Scarf
Soft Serve Ice Cream Scarf
Cupcake Hat with Frosting

Green Salad Scarf
Pink Grapefruit Scarf
Baby Raddish Lariat Scarf
Pear Scarf
Giant Carrot Scar
Strawberry Fingerless Mittens

Bacon and Eggs Scarf
Buttered Toast Scarf
Sushi Scarf
Pepperoni Pizza Scarf
Popcorn Scarf
Spaghetti n Meatballs Scarf

Twinkie's patterns are fairly simple to follow so any advanced beginner or intermediate should be able to follow them without problems, but beginners might need some help. Her designs are abit out there and not for everyone's taste but they can easily be adapted to suit most everyone's taste. The food motifs could be made into coasters, pot holders, purses or many other things. The Spaghetti Scarf is a simple fun way for someone to start felting. The popsicle scarf could easily be a regular scarf and is a nice simple crocheted cable scarf. The Cupcake hat is worked flat and produces a beautiful textured piece that makes diagonal stripes. I loved that one and I think I'll be using that technique for many different things.
It's a beautiful high quality book with tons of creative patterns that every crocheter should try.

I got this book because my sister wanted it, so I got one copy for her and one for me. We both really like the pieces, and have enjoyed this book so much! The book has illustrations on how to connect your pieces and good pictures of the author sporting the finished product, so you get a clear idea of what your end result will be. On the whole, I (and my sister) L-O-V-E this book.

The one problem I had is that the directions can be a little vague for a beginner. For instance, on the cupcake hat, when you make the icing part your piece should be a parallelagram shape so that the icing swirls. The directions for getting the end result are a teensy confusing, but what I think would throw a begginer off is that it doesn't tell you it should be a slanty sided rectangle. So you think you are doing it wrong and try to adjust to make it not slanty...I know this because I had to redo it partway through...I realized my wrongness when I paid better attention to the picture of the finished product (they are actually very helpful!). My sister did the same thing, not realizing that it should be slanty and her hat icing had no swirls. How sad! I guess if we had both just trusted the Twinks we would have done it right...but we didn't, and have learned our lesson...

Over all I would buy this book! (And buy one for your sister!) Just learn from my mistake, and do what they teach you in elementary school...FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!

This book is PERFECT! Patterns are creative and well written, even has row count if its multiple rows! I started counting the number of rows out, took another glance at the pattern, and it was already printed right there! Makes everything so easy :D. I know what EVERYONE is getting for Christmas this year!

Twinkie Chan is a rock star; I'm so inspired by her and will certainly be looking for more of her books in the future! Great buy for beginners and experienced crocheters alike. Her version of the popcorn stitch is just one example of how she makes everything super easy! Her down to earth attitude towards crocheting matches my own, especially the part where she explains how gauge for these types of projects is not important. I've NEVER looked at the gauge in a project, but then again I really only crochet amigurumi.

If you crochet and are somewhat zanny, this is the book to own. Great crazy patterns for both kids and adults. My 30 something daughter and son-in-law just had to have the bacon and egg and french toast scarf. A must to have.

Years back I remember seeing Twinkie Chan goodies for sale on eBay and thinking OMG! I wish I could make those!! Woohoo now I can! I literally never crocheted a thing in my life, but this book makes it easy enough to get started. There are clear How-to instructions given for each stitch included in this book, however I couldnt find one for BLO, but that's ok. I admit I had to do some Googling and Youtube video watching, but I believe I now have the basics down thanks to these inspiring patterns. So far I have made the Cupcake Hat and am almost finished on the Pear Scarf and I can't wait to start more! Like another reviewer mentioned there are a few discontinued yarn suggestions listed, but it's easy enough to substitute, besides I like changing up colors.
This book is awesome and I look forward to seeing more crochet books from Twinkie Chan!
