Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Beautifully rendered, heartbreakingly adorable, and wonderfully wacky knitted caps for newborns and toddlers

Thirty-eight million Americans knit, and that number grows every day. The baby hat is the perfect project for knitters of any level, with enchanting patterns that are easy enough for rank beginners but also interesting enough for the most accomplished needle wielders, in yarns that range from silk and linen to cashmere and mohair.

Susan Anderson’s Itty-Bitty Hats presents thirty-eight irresistible designs for infants and toddlers—fun, hip, creative patterns with decorative flourishes that are witty, whimsical, and undeniably unique. The projects are arranged by order of difficulty and accompanied by beautiful photographs, instructive how-to illustrations, and utterly clear instructions (with no confusing abbreviations or insider shorthand). Anderson also provides an indispensable introductory section on stitches, materials, equipment, terminology, and techniques, allowing even the most inexperienced knitter to get started confidently.

Made for boys and girls, by parents and grandparents, aunts and even uncles, and, of course, best friends, the handmade hat is the perfect shower or birth or birthday gift—and Itty-Bitty Hats is the perfect gift for any knitter.

i love this book! i have no babies to knit for specifically but hats are quick and easy, heartfelt gifts. there is such a terrific variety in this book from simple to sophisticated and all so very cute. i will be knitting some of these for Dulaan and other charitable efforts because the hats are budget and time friendly projects, who can resist such instant gratification? the book is really nicely printed too, quality paper, full color. and the spiral binding is the only way to present a book chock full of great patterns, not an insignficant detail to most knitters. a keeper for any knitting enthusiast looking to add to their reference library.

I've knit two hats out of this book. The hats are very cute although mostly they are variations on one or two themes. One of the nice things about this book is that the author uses the same yarns for most of the hats. This allows you to knit more than one style hat with the same yarn if you have some leftovers.

However, if you are a very experienced knitter who is looking for variety... this is not for you. I would definitely get this as a gift for my friends who are just learning to knit. The instructions at the beginning are good and since the hats are similar and use the same yarn, a beginner would get lots of practice.

I found this in my local library and decided I had to buy it...

The author starts with a very basic/simple beanie pattern on circular/double pointed needles (no seams!) and then shows variations.

The wool is mostly Rowan cottons however beanies are quite forgiving and many wools work just as well if you watch your tension square; I have knitted the dropped-daisy in a fluffy wool, and a striped beanie in a light pure wool.

What I would like to know before buying this book:
It is a US book - US tension gauge, inches and US needle sizes.
The patterns are beginner to intermediate - there is nothing inately difficult or challenging with these patterns.
The patterns are (mostly) in sizes newborn to 2yrs+. Nothing bigger.
Most of the pattern variations are made with colour changes and toppers.
The pictures are gorgeous and the patterns work!
There are a few errors in the patterns that are pretty easy to work around, and with minor modifications you can vary the final look to your own taste, eg the dropped daisy hat in many on the customer images has quite small petals and a very long stem (by pattern) but can be easily changed to suit yourself.
There are quite a few patterns; I would make most of them, and have made 5 of them in the last 4 weeks.

Addendum: I made the dropped daisy hat in a soft pink wool with a lemon daisy for my 2+ yo. First off, she refuses to remove it - it goes on when she gets up and comes off only to sleep. Secondly it was easy to make but looks so effective. And thirdly, we get compliments everywhere we go. I have never had this happen before - everyone we meet says "gorgeous hat", "love the hat", etc. What more can you want? This book was worth the buy, if only for that one pattern.

Wow this is an awesome book, I've already made six hats from here and I'm still going!! Every pattern has newborn through toddler sizes and the first three are plain hats in three weights of yarn which can then be applied to any other hats if you'd like to change the weight. They have patterns with color, texture, crazy and just plain pretty... it's perfect for any baby you could ever need to knit for!! I'd recommend this to every knitter!!

I absolutely love this book! The patterns are so easy and so creative! It is so refreshing to see so many adorable, creative patterns in one book. Many times knitting books have one or two good patterns and the rest are so-so. In this book, every single pattern is easy, creative and fun. I have already given two of the hats to a new niece and nephew. The moms loved the gift and have told me about all the compliments that they are getting. The photos are wonderful. I love the fact that each hat has its own little unique fun thing about the pattern. This is a great holiday present for any knitter on your list!!!!!

I bought this book for one pattern, but once it arrived and I saw all the adorable hats in it, I have made 4 different ones as well! One of the best things about the book is that all the patterns use the same size needles and the same weight yarn, so you can buy enough for one hat, but have leftover yarn to create a different one as well. The patterns are easy to follow...a great book to have in your stash!

Fantastic in every way--this book is a must have for all knitters. Itty-Bitty Hats is bursting with creative ideas. Not only is it presented in an easy to follow manner, the text is entertaining and inspirational as well. So many ideas for so many many different hats of different shapes, colors, and styles. The only problem you might have is deciding which hat to make first--they are all darling beyond words. It is always a blessing when authors as talented as Susan share her ideas with the world.
