Any project knitted out of Wenlan Chia’s Twinkle Soft Chunky knits up quickly. The single ply yarn is like using a smaller version of roving, very soft and fuzzy but it doesn’t shed. The color range is beautiful and Wenlan Chia’s patterns are modern putting an innovative spin on classic knitwear and styles. You won’t be disapointed in her first book of patterns Twinkle’s Big City Knits, a collection of more thatn 30 of Twinkle’s greatest hits that knitters can finally make at home.
The diamond scarf is classic pattern that is created by increasing and dropping stitches simultaneously creating diagnal lines that stretch and flow around your neck or shoulders. Bunch the scarf up for cold weather with your favorite jacket or wear it with a strapless dress around your shoulders for spring.
No matter how you wear it you are sure to get compliments on this chunky knit all year long. The stitch combination allows for your six feet of knitting to magically grow to eight, and I think we all know that diamonds are a girl’s best friend! -B
