The good news about this book is that it has instructions for some of the cutest hats, caps, and berets ever pulled together for a knitting collection. The not-so-good news is that most of the projects are done in the round on double-pointed needles, which tends to scare off less-experienced knitters. Carron makes a game effort to explain the techniques, and it is possible from the sharp photo illustrations to get the general ideal, but whether a knitter could actually learn how to do this kind of knitting from a book is debatable. Still, these projects are so enticing (and fashionable!) that many will want to try. Special attention is given to a discussion of various types of yarn, and there are also explanations of related techniques such as felting. Unlike many hat instructions, these come in two sizes, medium and large. Ilene Cooper
