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.

    Ok, if you like Fair Isle

    I bought this book thinking the hats in it would be really fun. I suppose they are if you like to so a lot of colorwork. I don't even know how to knit half the patterns in this book. The charts and patterns looked pretty well written, but I was very disappointed at the lack of non-fair isle patterns.

    Caps for everyone

    Instructions are clear so that a knitter with just a bit of experience can work their way through the projects. I really like that the patterns are written for several sizes. You can make matching hats for a family if you like. I bought this book because I needed a basic watch cap pattern (which was surprisingly difficult to find in other books). In addition to the watch cap, I've knit other patterns from this book. My daughter loves the star crown cap that I knit for her. I really appreciate that the publisher used a type font and size that are easy to read. So even if you are knitting while watching TV with the lights turned down (my usual mode), you can still read the patterns!
