About Me

Twinkie Chan is a San Francisco based crochet designer with an insatiable appetite for creating deliciously fun, food-themed accessories. She launched her website in 2005 with a dozen scrumptious scarves and some tater tot dolls. Since then, her unique work has been featured online, in print, on television, and in art shows.

The incredible demand for her crochet patterns inspired her to write her first book, "Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies: 20 Yummy Treats To Wear" in Fall 2010, which won About.com's Readers's Choice Award for Best DIY Fashion Book in 2011. Her highly anticipated second book, “Twinkie Chan’s Crocheted Abode a la Mode,” will be available in Spring 2016.

She also launched a diffusion line, "Yummy You! by Twinkie Chan," to make her signature crochet pieces more accessible and more affordable. Yummy You! is all about celebrating bright colors, bold patterns, fun textures, and feeling cute at any age. With both Yummy You! and her own handmade items, Twinkie hopes to help people feel more yummy and to make the world a yummier place.
