I've knitted several of the beanies in this book - patterns are clear, easy to follow.

The Classic Cap pattern knits really well using Malabrigo Worsted yarn.

i purchased this book several months ago and have fallen in love with it. it has given me lots of different ideas to use in my own hat making. and every single one of the hats is darling. that being said, of the hats i have knitted from the book, each one of the patterns contains at least one mistake. as an intermediate knitter, i have recognized the mistakes and am able to "fix" the pattern so i can achieve the desired end however, for a beginning knitter or one who is unfamiliar with hat patterns, i would find that very frustrating. overall, a great book to add to any pattern book library but with a few drawbacks...

I didn't buy this book on Amazon but saw it here after buying it at a well-known book store for much more....grumble grumble. Having said that, I have to say that this book is definitely worth every penny!

There are easy to follow patterns for over 25 different hats and each one is darling! How to decide which one to knit first?!

I have been knitting for about a year but still consider myself a beginner. This book is perfect for newer knitters because many of the patterns only require knowing how to knit, purl, K2tog,K3tog,yo,join new colors, use DPNs (which isn't hard - just a little awkward), and more. Since you are knitting hats, you will be using circular needles.

The beginning of the book has several illustrated pages of instructions on all the basics that I mentioned previously.

There are more advanced patterns, too. Cables, stranded knitting, etc. are used in a few patterns but there are basic how-to's alongside the pattern so you feel comfortable attempting them.

At the beginning of each pattern the author lists the yarn used, needle size, and skills needed in order to make the exact hat in the picture or one with your own color combinations using similar yarn. She also includes sizing for 0-6mos,6-12 mos,1-2 years,and 2 years and up.

I am almost finished knitting the Accordion Hat and it is coming out just like the one in the book - I am thrilled!

I highly recommend this book. Every hat is so sweet and you will want to knit every one of them for the little sweeties in your life!

i was looking for a book of hat patterns which i could use to make baby hats and adapt to adult size to donate to the oncology floor of the hospital where my daughter works as a nurse. these are great patterns; clear, easily understood, logical. i haven't found any errors yet, a problem often encountered in other knitting books. (doesn't anyone test these things???) my only complaint is that altho there is a "yarn size" chart in the beginning, with the skein symbol with the number in it, the actual patterns do NOT have that symbol, meaning some trial and error for substitutions.
try making the accordian hat on 9's with vanna's choice in a sophisticated color duo and you'll have a cool hat for yourself. ditto for the beret with the eyelet band.

Format: Paperback
I've read several baby hat books, but this one is by far the best, and the pictures are adorable. Of course it helps that the author is also a child photographer !!! Unfortunately she is based in Sydney (AU), otherwise I would definitely want to have a photo shoot for my son. I highly recommend you to go on her website (which is cited on the back of the book), and check her work. She is incredibly talented. About the book, I like that she used different textures of yarns, which make the patterns more interesting. As another person wrote in her review, she gives you the basics first, but then she also gives helpful tips along the way. But even if you don't knit one single hat out of this book (which is pretty hard considering that my hands were itching to start as soon as I opened it), it is already well worth it just for the pictures.

I bought this book to add to my collection of baby hat patterns. I just love to make baby hats. This is a great book comparable with Itty Bitty hats. The directions could not be more clear with great picture to help guide you. I have now made three of the hats in this book, I have found one pattern with direction mistakes that make a cute hat, but not the one pictured. Some of the yarns are a bit difficult to find as the author is an Aussie, but substitutes are really easy. Even with these minor issues,this is a great book. Most hats are knit in a DK wool on size 7 circular needles. If you have a passion for baby hats, you'll really enjoy using this book.

I first checked this book out at the library. After seeing all the wonderful projects I just had to buy it. This is a great book filled with cute, colorful little hats to knit. I started off knitting the baby beret. The instructions were very clear and I completed the project in just a few hours. I've been knitting for about 1 year and I feel this book can be used by beginner and advanced knitter alike. Great way to use leftover yarn too.

This book has some adorable patterns but I have found some mistakes in the directions, some being pretty large mistakes. I am not sure who does the patterns before they get printed but the cable hat pattern is not the same as the one pictured-very frustrating to discover a few hours into your work! The decreasing part brings the cable pattern to an abrupt halt so I am pretty disappointed with how it turned out. I think that since this book seems to be written for beginnner knitters, telling where in the pattern to switch to DP needles would be nice, also. I have made several of these hats and love the ones that didn't have mistakes (or ones I was able to catch) They are absolutely adorable! Oh, instructions on how to attach different tassles and things would also be nice-I am an experienced knitter but haven't done much with tassles and things. All in all, love the idea of this book, love the hats, but feel like the instructions leave a lot to be desired. Frustrating.
