Ibomu's instructions are marvelously clear. The book is full of hatmaking tips that can be applied to any project. And the hats themselves are versatile, stylish, and flattering. They can be made wild and colorful or one-color sophisticated, and the results are great-fitting, comfortable, easy-to-wear headgear.
There's lots of variety in the styles, and Ibomu explains how to add a full brim or a well-shaped bill to almost any of them. Several of the styles make great crushable brimmed hats for travel; in cotton or linen they're perfect for summer outdoor vacations. There's even a crocheted fedora, that most flattering of hat styles, as well as beanies, baseball-style caps, a ski hat that supplies its own scarf, a classic jazz-musician brimmed hat, and a beautiful tam.
I'm wearing the Kinky Reggae right now, made in all-cotton worsted. It's a dream hat for this white chick who's growing her hair out and who wants a comfy, stylish way to keep her floppy bangs out of her eyes all summer.
The best crochet book I've ever bought!
Excellent crochet book!!!! Easy to read, author gives easy tutorials on the basics of crochet. I am a experienced crocheter and from reading and reviewing this book there is no reason for anyone to have problems finishing any project from this book. Afya Ibomu (Author) gives you basic easy to read instructions even if your a beginner crocheter.
I would highly recommend this book if your ready to make hats and caps!
