Caps are wonderful knitting projects—small and portable, providing just the right mix of challenge and simplicity. From the basic watch cap to fanciful multicoloured and textured creations, knitters will be enticed by the intriguing diversity of style and technique: double-, triple-, and quadruple-thicknesses for warmth and weather resistance; hats with earflaps, ornamental cuffs, and jester's tassles; and even ornaments to hang from the Christmas tree.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Schurch, master knitter and author of Mostly Mittens: Traditional Knitting Patterns from Russia's Komi People (LJ 11/15/98), now turns her attention to caps. Knitters often use caps as "proving grounds" for patterns and styles they plan to use later in garments. The knitter who completes these 31 caps will be well versed in a variety of ethnic knitting styles and color pattern techniques. Instructions are clearly written and include excellent graphs as well as a color photo of each hat. As no novelty or unusual yarns are required, this book is a good choice for even small public libraries located in areas where local yarn stores do not abound.
