about

Twinkie Chan is “that girl who crochets food scarves. eat your cake and wear it, too!”

Twinkie has been on the DIY scene for over a decade now, having launched her site in 2005. She is based out of San Francisco and is the author of “Twinkie Chan’s Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies: 20 Yummy Treats To Wear”, which came out in Fall 2010 and won About.com’s Readers’s Choice Award for Best DIY Fashion Book of 2011.

Her highly anticipated second book, “Twinkie Chan’s Crocheted Abode a la Mode” will be available in Spring 2016.

We can’t wait for that one!

Twinkie has also launched a diffusion line, “Yummy You! by Twinkie Chan” that offer up her signature crochet patterns in a more accessible way, at a more affordable price. The line celebrates bright colours, bold patterns, fun textures, and feeling cute at any age.

If you are looking for something special order, and if Twinkie has the time, you can nab a custom scarf, starting at $150 USD. Each of Twinkie’s hand-stitched pieces takes approximately 6 – 10 hours, with much time invested to ensure that all ends are carefully woven in.

There is tons of detail and love invested in each piece, so you can be sure that your scarf is as cute as possible.

All of Twinkie’s patterns and designs are 100% original, with some stitches being picked up along the way from other resources.

Twinkie has an Etsy shop filled with food inspired scarves, cup cozies, brooches, pen cozies, hair clips, hats, tissue box cozies, fingerless gloves, and tons of PDF patterns.

Stop on by and order up some of her yummy crocheted goodness!
