I've used the crochet edition of this book, and couldn't be happier with it. I've made five of the designs (sometimes in multiples) as well-received gifts, as well as for myself. So I had really high hopes for this knitting book on the same topic, by the same designer.

By sight, everything looks wonderful and beautiful--like hats you would buy from a high-end store, if only you could both afford and find them! But there was something that shocked me right from the beginning as I tried to do one of the patterns. The author left where the increases went, and keeping them in the stitch pattern, up to the knitter. Surprised, I went through the rest of the book and noticed that only one hat pattern (Truly Purple) has the increases already figured out for you. The back of the booklet provides a math equation to figure it out somewhat, but with purchased, professional patterns, I expect the designer to have figured this all out.

After I finally got the increases figured out, I noticed a mistake in the pattern I was following (Fun Stripes). As per the illustration, there's one variant stripe about mid-hat that is made up of two, instead of the normal three, rows. But not if you follow the pattern repeat exactly as stated--it's five that way--rounds 13 and 14 are the contrast color, then you repeat the contrast color for three more rows. I checked for corrections on the official website (something all of us crafters need to diligently do--I'm seeing more and more mistakes in craft books lately), but couldn't find any. This isn't a big mistake, but it's a mistake nonetheless, and because it's a relatively obvious one, it makes me worried about trying other patterns.

It's also important to note that the hats are made on circular and double-pointed needles.

I've already made two of the hats and plan to remake them in other colors. Very nice! Very happy to have found style in these well-written patterns. I made the Cabled Classic in 100% cotton in black and the Truly Purple in a wool/silk blend. Will definitely remake both when I find just the right yarn in a cashmere blend. These are not your run-of-the-mill hat designs. Fun to watch the designs develop as you progress through the patterns. This booklet is a must-have for me!

This pattern book is so much fun! I made the brown cover hat for my nephew in dark navy and he really likes it. I used the same pattern to make a modified black hat for myself. (Instead of knitting to 8.5", I stopped at 5.5" and then worked the crown.) It's perfect to pop on and dash out to do errands when the weather is chilly or if I'm having a bad hair day. I've received many compliments on it. The fit is so nice that I decided to see if my mother would want one. It looked good on her - so she kept my hat! I started knitting another one for myself. It's an easy and fun 2 night project.

I've knitted many, many hats but love the slouchy style featured in this little book. Every one is different, stylish, and best of all EASY to make!

Instead of searching out different slouch hat patterns from a variety of sources, I now have a great selection in one place. I plan on making each one the book features.

This book has very stylish, modern patterns and they're very easy to create. This would make an excellent gift for a young knitters. I wish my instructor would have given me this instead of those clunky old sweater patterns.
