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.Read more ›
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.
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 awesome and I look forward to seeing more crochet books from Twinkie Chan!
