9780307346124: Twinkle's Town & Country Knits: 30 Designs for Sumptuous Living

Wenlan Chia gave readers a taste of her signature style—transforming bold, chunky yarns into delicate, body-shaping pieces—in Twinkle's Big City Knits and Twinkle's Weekend Knits. Now she returns with Twinkle's Town & Country Knits, featuring sweaters and accessories that channel the sophistication of town and country life.

Twinkle's Town & Country Knits whisks knitters to picturesque locations such as the California coast and the farms of New England—the influences for this set of Chia's signature garments—and offers 30 designs unified by their chic, classic silhouettes. From the Pacifica Cardigan (a sky-blue sweater with feather-edging openwork) to the Santa Lucia Skirt (a long, coral-and-pink skirt with wavy stripes) to the Bookbrowser’s Sweater (a bright-pink, long-sleeved sweater with a bobble front and split fold-over neck), the projects suggest a town and country lifestyle, with a charming, witty touch that one expects from Twinkle collections. The patterns feature the attention to shaping and the innovative approach to large-gauge knitting that Twinkle is famous for, along with easy-to-follow directions.

Like the lifestyle that inspired this collection—in which the urban and the pastoral gracefully meet—the Twinkle aesthetic strikes an elegant balance. Here, Chia's runway-ready look gives the casual, town-and-country chic of years past a thoroughly modern makeover.

Whether worn during the weekend in the country or strolling through town, the looks in Twinkle's Town & Country Knits embody sumptuous living.Wenlan Chia's stylish fashion line leaps off the runway and into your hands with these accessible knits that conjure the sophistication of the town and country life. From cardigans that at first seem classic and familiar—but that reveal an unexpected, romantic twist—to scarves with details that delight, these luxurious ensembles will enliven your wardrobe. These knits go effortlessly from city to country and back again.
