Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The latest collection from the editors of Vogue Knitting focuses on hats in all their various shapes and styles. After a brief introduction to hat history, anatomy, and techniques, the pattern section explores hats, first by shape and then by technique. Approximately twenty of the patterns are from the Vogue Knitting archives, and the rest are brand-new. The designers include a mix of the well known (Kate Gagnon Osborn, Norah Gaughan, and Pam Allen) and lesser known, and the styles are varied. The designs are heavy on women's hats, although different yarn choices could make them suitable for men, and the patterns are designed for a variety of skill levels. VERDICT Hats are a popular project with knitters, and this collection has an excellent variety of shapes, styles, and techniques.

There are so many beautiful patterns in the book, I can't decide which to do first. I am so impressed with it I bought a copy for Mom.
