Overview

Beautifully rendered, heartbreakingly adorable, and wonderfully wacky knitted caps for newborns and toddlers

Thirty-eight million Americans knit, and that number grows every day. The baby hat is the perfect project for knitters of any level, with enchanting patterns that are easy enough for rank beginners but also interesting enough for the most accomplished needle wielders, in yarns that range from silk and linen to cashmere and mohair.

Susan Anderson’s Itty-Bitty Hats presents thirty-eight irresistible designs for infants and toddlers—fun, hip, creative patterns with decorative flourishes that are witty, whimsical, and undeniably unique. The projects are arranged by order of difficulty and accompanied by beautiful photographs, instructive how-to illustrations, and utterly clear instructions (with no confusing abbreviations or insider shorthand). Anderson also provides an indispensable introductory section on stitches, materials, equipment, terminology, and techniques, allowing even the most inexperienced knitter to get started confidently.

Made for boys and girls, by parents and grandparents, aunts and even uncles, and, of course, best friends, the handmade hat is the perfect shower or birth or birthday gift—and Itty-Bitty Hats is the perfect gift for any knitter.

I am always looking for knitting books and I went to B&N to pick up Mason-Dixie Knitting and found this little book...with the best 'how to knit' instructions I have ever seen!!! Anybody new to knitting should have this book especially if they are into knitting baby items. I am excited to start a project from this book!

Highly whimsical and fun to make unique baby hats. I found sizes to run a bit large even with correct gauge but still managed tot work it out. g One of my all time favorite go to baby gift books. The yarns used are often discontinued, however easy substitutes can be found. LOVE this book!

I have been looking for detailed directions on how to knit baby caps. This is the book that had not only detailed directions but also gave you directions on all of your basic knitting skills. I knit baby caps for new babies at the hospital where my daughter works. I could never find a set of directions that could help me get the right size. Definitely recommend this book for all those new to knitting!

Very nice book with cute items to choose from BUT... the pages in my copy are out of order! It has pages 1-32, then 49-64, then 33-48, then 65-end. No wonder the Bunny Tail hat pattern wasn't making sense to me! Oh well, I bought it online and it's not worth returning for exchange as long as I've got it figured out what goes with what. Maybe I'll just take the spiral out and rearrange them.

I am rather new to knitting and found this book to have the cutest and easiest hats to make. When I give them as gifts, my friends are always shocked at the boutique style and uniqueness of each hat! Definatley a great book for beginning knitters!

This book includes easy to follow directions for knitters of all skill levels. It includes gauge information so that you can adapt designs to different yarns. The photo artwork is beautiful and inspirational. This is my favorite kids' hat book. I recommend it to anyone who knits for babies, toddlers and/or young children. The designs are fun for kids to wear, and for adults to see.

I LOVE this book! I have made several different hats and always get lots of oohs and ahhs. They knit up quickly because they are 'itty-bitty'. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I've made upside-down daisy in two different sizes for my niece. She couldn't look any cuter if she tried!
