The hats are... interesting and creative... and probably unwearable for any adult woman who isn't using the hat as a costume or prop. The models and photographs are very pretty, but I don't think I would ever wear most of these hats. (And I have a fairly goofy sense of style and I live in San Francisco, so that's saying a lot.) And a few of them are downright fugly. And why so many pointy caps on the hats??? They look silly like an elf or garden gnome cap. I might try 1 or 2 of these patterns, but I'll probably change the decreases so that the top of the hat doesn't end up so tall and pointy.

I was in a hat knitting mood when this book was released. With so many hat designs surely I would find something just right for a lace lover who prefers fingering to dk weight yarns. Not a chance! If quirky, trendy, even strange headgear and bulky yarns are your thing, then this book is for you. If you are searching for classic, elegant, or refined hats for everyday use do what I did and look elsewhere. With so many hats, there wasn't anything for me to wear here.

I had high hopes for this book because I love accessory patterns, but I don't think this designer is for me. She seems to have a flair for the odd with a lot of novelty yarn choices and weird (for me) designs. I find that a good number of her patterns seem to be impractical for everyday use (who really wears a hat with a full neck collar?) or just plain wild as though she were designing for winter runway fashions. I'm not sure I found a single hat in this book I will knit... though you might. If you've got a flair for the dramatic, this might be for you!

The cover of this book is what caught my eye and when I viewed the reviews I was compelled to buy the book and see if the customers were right in their synopsis of this book. Once I received the book, I was anxious to view the book, page by page. I was pleasantly surprised and am glad to have it and cannot wait to start making these most beautiful and creative designs. I think, once you check this book out, you will want to add it to your Library of great knitted hats.

I bought this book as a gift - I am not a knitter. However, I appreciated the LARGE CLEAR photos and simple instructions that made me think perhaps one day, I might be able to whip up hat one day. Lots of styles, although many were redundant, with a few extra details or a different type of yarn. Overall, I thought this was a great book for the price, and full of beautiful hats! :)

Hattitude has a lot of variety and styles to keep me interested for quite a while. The patterns are easy to follow and good inspiration. Definitely a keeper!

What can I say that would accurately sum up how much I love this book? I have made every patter, and they all look fantastic, and I've already made duplicates. I'm constantly asked where I got my hats, all my friends love getting them for presents. There's no better book you can buy.

We bought this as a gift four our sister-in-law who enjoys knitting and especially hats. She was very pleased with the number of patterns and the instructions for each of the patterns in the book. Overall it looks like a great buy, and I may get a new hat out of it.

I imagined because of the multitude of hats I would be spoiled for choice. Instead I was sorely disappointed finding the majority of patterns rather boring. I passed this book to a knitters club hoping they find something of interest.
