This is an adorable book that has wonderful pictures of all of the cute animal hats and booties that are available to create. I am much better at crochet than I am at knitting, but I wanted to give this book a try and see if I could produce one of the easier hats. I think I must admit that I really need someone sitting beside me, guiding me in a step by step fashion if I ever hope to produce more than a scarf! However, this is not at all the book’s fault! The instructions are clearly written and everything is divided in a straightforward way. Knitters who are more confident than I am should have no problems with following along. Plus, with the adorable pictures, you will be able to see what the creation will turn out to look like. These are such cute hats and booties! I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review.
