Twinkie Chan, crochet scarves.
I pre-ordered Twinkie Chan's book "Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies," to make a couple of scarves for my niece, but, then my neighbor saw them and asked if I could make some for her to give out as Christmas gifts to her nieces as well. Six weeks later I was done. The Pizza Scarf is for me, and the first thing I have crocheted for myself since I started 3 years ago.

All the yarn I used was Red Heart Super Saver Solids. To soften it up, I used a steam iron set on the lowest steam setting and while keeping the iron moving steamed the scarves *before* I added any embellishments. This was the first time I had tried it, but I will do this from now on, the scarves were so soft afterward.

Wow yours looks just like the ones in the book! Great job! I might try the pizza scarf one day, I tried the cupcake one but got so confused with the instructions. It turned out well for you so maybe I'll give it another chance Happy

@Angharrad D. Ha, it was my wrist that was killing me more so, my neighbor paid me for my materials and time, that made it worth while.


@quirky been v. As for knitting, I am just beginning to dabble into it (and I am not very good at it), so I am unsure. For the pizza scarf you could make a long triangle, and change colors when you get to the sauce and crust (the crust has bubbles in it, so maybe some kind of bobble stitich?), for the pepperonis either use fabric glue and felt or knit flat circles. I found a tutorial for that just now with Google. http://knit-amigurumi.blogspot.com/2008/03/how-to-knit-flat-circle.html

You should be able to use the bobble stitch on the popcorn scarf.

The sprinkles on the cupcakes and cookies are pom poms, the chocolate chips on the cookies are felt, I used buttons for my gingerbread men's eyes.

I suggest going to her website, twinkiechan.com, and looking at the scarves in the gallery, as well as on Ravelry.com http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/twinkie-chans-crochet-goodies-for-fashion-foodies and look closely at the photos and figure out what knitting methods would work.

I wish I could help more!
