All of the hats in this book are super cute and sized for both adults and children. All of the patterns look really easy. The one thing I do not like is that all the hats are knit flat and then sewn up the back. I'd rather knit in the round and skip the seams. I haven't looked at all the patterns in extreme detail, but it seems like for most you could sub in another hat pattern and then just add the animal embellishments. Heavy yarns are used, so these should knit up pretty quickly.

Animals included:
elephant
monkey
pig
frog
cat
fox
penguin
chicken
mouse
cow
panda
rabbit
lion
dog
koala

I'm planning on making hats out of this book for my niece and nephew for Christmas. I'll update my review once I've done that.

The patterns are well written and easy to follow. Some of the needles required are in very hard to find sizes. Make sure you check your gage though. I went to several shops trying to find the right size needles only to find when I did get them that they were too big and I was able to make do with needles I already had. The most difficult thing about these hats is deciding which one to do first. Every pattern is a winner!

I had a great time paging through the book when it arrived. I knew that I wanted to make the elephant hat. I was disappointed that there were only 2 sizes for the hats. A hat that fits an 8 year old child would be way to big for a 1 year old. So I used the hat pattern from another source and used the book for the ears, trunk and tusks.
It came out great. I'm waiting to see how my grandsons like there matching elephant hats.

I picked this book out just before Christmas to make hats for the kids. So far I knitted the Cat and Fox hats, They work up quickly, the patterns are easy to understand and the finished projects have gotten rave reviews.

I have only made one hat so far- the cat hat. I used the instructions for the adult size and it still came out very small. Check your guage and you may find that you need to add more stiches, or larger needles, than stated.

I bought this for the picture on the cover and end ed up making the chicken and 4 cats for a children's theatre production. They were perfect. The kids loved them We could see their faces and they were an audience hit.I will be making more for sure- the lion is next.

Very cute hats. Unfortunately they are made flat and seamed in the back. The patterns would be much better if made in the round.

Do you have kids or grandkids with a sense of humor? Like to take photos of yourself or your family members in funny hats? Have a bunch of scrap worsted-weight yarn in weird colors? This is the book for you! Why not walk around with a rabbit on your head, or an elephant, or a lion, or even a chicken? Completely ridiculous & for knitters, irresistible. These are all easy knitting projects that don't require a lot of expensive yarn. The book is well worth its very reasonable price.
