The designers included are: Sigrid Arnott, Dawn Brocco, Elinor Brown, Beth Brown-Reinsel, Lily M Chin, Donna Druchunas, Anne Caroll Gilmour, Jennifer Hansen, Janel Laidman, Elanor Lynn, Helene Magnusson, Heather Ordover, and Lizbeth Upitis.

The book is filled with excellent photographs, including closeups, and most feature a product or item associated with the particular region. (An exception to this is the wooden shipping crate clearly stenciled with Milwaukee, Wisconsin, pictured with hat and gloves from the Aran Islands, which I find curious, although there is, no doubt, an excellent reason for this choice!)

While there are only four actual glove patterns, the fingerless gloves and some of the mittens are ideal candidates for converting to gloves. The hats are mostly in the beanie/cloche style, although there are also berets, and a wonderful British driving cap with coordinating knucks.

To quote Donna Druchunas: "Whether you are looking for an easy project or something more challenging, you'll find patterns in this collection that you'll love to knit and wear."

I've already found some likely candidates!

I just received this book and i really like what i've seen this far! There is a lot of REALLY nice mittens and hats patterns from all around the world.

I love to knit mittens! And i have a lot of experience.
I don't think it a good mitten book for beginners, because Its not any how-to guide, there is just a lot of patters which is exactly what I was looking for.

I've would recommend this book for those of you who love mittens and are looking for new inspiration and new patterns. Some of this designs are really pretty and modern, and I can't wait to get started on a new project!

There are 34 hat and mitten patterns in this book, organized by region--Scandinavia, Europe (including Greece, Britain, The Baltic, The Far East and the Americas (South and North.) Most of the patterns are colorwork; there are some texture or cable stitched patterns as well. If you like colorful hats of all shapes (earflaps, berets, toques, caps with brims) then you're going to like this book. At the cost of knitting patterns today, running an average of about five bucks per pattern, the book is actually a bargain if you like a majority of the patterns. Even if you don't like the colorwork, the shapes can be useful and you can often use them to substitute your own color charts.

This book is just full of beautiful and inspiring projects, and clear instructions on the techniques needed to make them. I knit a lot of mittens, and this year am hoping to work my way straight through the offerings here. Pages are nicely laid out, plenty of white space, clean font, clear photos and diagrams. I'm very glad I bought this.

This book has a very detailed section in the beginning with instruction on colorwork, stitches used and correcting mistakes. There are some beautiful patterns in the book! I plan on knitting the mittens on the cover after the holidays!

I have been looking a countless 'colorwork' books and settled on this one... the patterns are well documented and there are a lot of pictures. ...it is really a beautiful book, nice paper and binding!

I almost never buy knitting accessory books ... although i do buy lots of knitting books. The cover design pulled me in to "look inside" and found that there were so many beautiful hats and mitten/glove combinations that I had to own the book. I typically have a skein or two left over when I complete sweaters .. the patterns in this book will provide a great use for these stray bits. I highly recommend this book.

I'm knitting the Fence line Cap and Gloves (really mittens) p. 119. The chart is great for the hat, but lacks asterisks for thumb increases, even though the text indicates that they're specially placed to maintain color pattern continuity. Awww... I do like the four-color chain, though.

Very satisfied with this book. I am making my first set of mittens! My hands are tiny and I expect I should have adjusted needle size. My aim is to make the front cover mittens. I have made plenty of hats and I already know I need adjustment. For those who need to know I wear a women's small size glove and hat and still need to knit tightly or go down on needle size for proper fit. I was hoping for a traditional "cuffed" wrist but found these patterns gorgeous!

Good luck knitting!
