Twinkie Chan's Crocheted Abode a la Mode: 20 Yummy Crochet Projects for Your Home by Twinkie Chan

Crochet the cutest food-themed home goods you'll ever see with Twinkie Chan's new book of patterns!

Crochet designer and craft superstar Twinkie Chan is back with her highly anticipated book Crocheted Abode a la Mode: 20 Yummy Crochet Projects for Your Home. This is the follow-up to Chan's first book, which featured food-inspired crocheted accessories. In Crocheted Abode a la Mode, Chan unveils twenty new food-themed crochet patterns for crafters to follow as they crochet their living space into a cozier, yummier place. The book is organized according to rooms in your house: kitchen and dining, living and lounging, bath and beauty, and home office.

Helpful diagrams, step-by-step instructions, and colorful photos help crocheters of all skill levels create Chan's cute and cozy home decor pieces. Readers are guaranteed to find several adorable, food-forward patterns to bring to life with their crochet hooks—everything from giant donut floor poufs to sweet honeybear aprons to savory corn dog pen cozies.

Chan's signature style is cute, colorful, food-themed, and always functional, which highlights an attribute she likes to call "cute-tility." Her fun, unique designs are inspired by Japanese kawaii (cute) culture as well as her childhood collection of faux food toys. Her patterns appeal to crafters of all ages, and her warm, conversational writing style welcomes them into her cozy crocheted world, encouraging everyone to get creative. So, what are you waiting for? Let the fun unravel!

About the Author

Twinkie Chan rocked the craft and fashion world in 2005 with her unique accessory designs, most noteably her food-themed scarves. She launched her website, www.TwinkieChan.com, with a dozen one-of-a-kind scarves and a couple of tater tot plush dolls. Since then, her work has developed a crafty cult following—there's nothing else quite like it out there.

In 2010, Chan released Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies, which featured patterns for crocheting food-inspired fashion accessories like hats, mittens, scarves, and tissue-box cozies. Her designs have been featured in Crochet Today magazine, Giant Robot magazine, Glamour Italia, xoJane.com, the Huffington Post, MentalFloss.com, and HGTV's "Uncommon Threads." As a designer, she is highly sought after by companies such as Sanrio, major yarn brands such as Lion Brand Yarn and Lily's Sugar 'n Cream Yarn, and craft stores such as Michaels.

Chan learned to crochet from her best friend's grandmother when she was ten years old, and she has always turned to crochet to make gifts for friends and family. She has a B.A. in English/Creative Writing from Stanford University, but after working in the publishing industry for ten years, she now crafts and crochets full-time.

This is a wonderful book but please be aware that this book does not download, I spent 30 minutes online trying to get it to work only to be told it will take up to 2 weeks for engineers to look at this. Please spare yourself the time and just buy the hard copy

Excellent design projects inside this book! I love the beautiful items I can create, especially the sundae. It's so gorgeous and the many other covers I can make in dessert style. These are easy to understand and each pattern has photos and simple to understand abbreviations.
