Overview

45 Fine and Fanciful Hats to Knit contains an inspiring variety of great hats to make, each one a collectible in its own right. The book opens with simple instructions reviewing the basics of knitting hats, and then moves on to specific instructions for knitting nine completely different hat styles. Choose a classic beret or a snug-fitting toque for a classic look, or try an Egyptian hat or a cone shape for fun variations of traditional classics. For the high-spirited and adventurous, make a pentagon, an onion dome, a star, a stacked, or an Angela hat. Each hat is shown in full color and is accompanied by easy-to-follow pattern charts. Portions of the hats are interchangeable, allowing knitters to customize their creations. The hats are made on circular needles; there's no purling so you're always looking at the right side of the knitting, making it much easier to follow patterns.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Zilboorg's earlier Fancy Feet: Knitting Patterns of Turkey (Lark, 1994) was notable for its lack of "fluff"just gorgeous patterns, simply presented. Now Zilborg uses the same approach with knitted hats. All manner of exotic, richly patterned woolen caps are included, among them toques, berets, Egyptian hats, and onion domes. Basic instructions for each type of hat; full-color, one-page photographs; and charts for each design variation fill the book. Highly recommended for those knitting collections catering to the experienced knitter.
