Welcome to the land of make believe. Twinkie Chan - crochet designer and lover of whimsical and wearable projects - will teach you how to crochet a soft, cozy crown and a star to top a magic wand. The crown pattern is easily adjustable and you will learn many different crochet techniques along the way. Play with texture to mimic metal by alternating a short single crochet stitch with a tall treble crochet stitch, discover the handy foundation single crochet, resulting in an extra stretchy and comfy fit, and find out Twinkie's secret for keeping your seams straight when working in joined rounds. The magic wand is a quick project made with granny stitch stars, with plenty of room for your favorite enchanting embellishments.
