Wenlan Chia, creator of the acclaimed fashion line Twinkle by Wenlan, is famous for knitting bold, chunky yarn into delicate, feminine designs. The look is at once whimsical and hip, classic and trendy; in short, Wenlan s knits are like nothing you ve seen before. Now, she shares her patterns and her secrets with knitters everywhere. Twinkle s Big City Knits is a collection of 31 of Twinkle s greatest hits that knitters can make at home. From a mohair shrug embellished with ribbon and braids to a wrap vest with a plunging V-neck, every design in Twinkle s Big City Knits puts an innovative, spin on classic knitwear and styles. Here are patterns for all of Twinkle s hottest pieces: the bestselling seed-stitch Twinkle Hoodie, the cropped and flirty Best Friend Cardigan, the effortlessly trendy Shopping Tunic. For warmer weather, lighter colours and lighter knits reign, so you ll find the classic sophistication of the Chanel-inspired Coco Jacket in soft pastels, a delicate and feather-soft scarf light enough for spring, as well as the St. Bart s Mini that could very well be the perfect Little Black Dress. Full-colour photographs and clear instructions make it easy to learn new techniques. In addition, Wenlan shares her advice on techniques, choosing yarns and materials to make knitting with chunky yarn as easy as it looks.

Great designs, but the patterns are full of errors. Largest size only goes to size 33" bust, so many will need to adjust patterns.
