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.Read more ›
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.
So overall, it's a great book if you're an intermediate knitter and willing to take the time to make a few samples and do some math. But if not, I'd find a higher quality book elsewhere.
