Product Details

Product Description


"MacDonald and LaBarre, authors of New England Knits (2009) and the e-book Wool Book One, have put together a book of original hat-pattern designs and instructions. The size of the projects allows for 'near instant gratification' and makes for portable opportunities to try out new techniques and yarns. Of course, they make great gifts, too. The book includes 25 patterns by 19 designers, and the authors. The hats are cute, clever, fun, fashionable--all with texture, character, and whimsy. Almost all of the projects are four pages, with instructions, tips, and techniques, and featuring multiple photos of the hats modeled by men and women. Projects are not assigned skill levels, perhaps because they are 'weekend' projects. The table of contents lists the designer and has small pictures of each project for easy reference. Knitting techniques with illustrations follow the projects. Dusty autumn pastel page backgrounds help increase page browsability." - Lani Smith, Booklist

"When I first saw this book I thought -'Hooray, New England Hats!', but no, it's not a book of hat designs by New England Knits authors, Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre. The authors do contribute two patterns each to this book, and it turns out, they are just as good at picking folks to design hats as they are at designing them themselves. This book has 25 hat designs by 19 different designers. Texture, colorwork, lace - whatever you most love to knit or have wanted to dabble in, you'll find it here. I have a deep-rooted fear of Fair Isle, but Gudrun Johnson's Hued Toque is calling me. There are hats for men and women, and hats that would suit both. Hats that are more decorative and hats that are cozy warm. The variety of design is huge, and if like me, you're a little bit tired of chunky everything, not one of these hats is knit out of chunky or bulky yarn - Hooray!" - Jillian Moreno, Knitty.com

"Got a few hours to spare? Then you'll need a copy of this fab book! The 25 head coverings (in an array of styles) are all designed to be knitted in a weekend, so they're perfect projects for short trips away, winter weekends hibernating at home or just when you're taking breaks from larger projects. This all-in-one resource includes hats for all skill levels." - Knit Today

"Easy-to-follow instructions... This book provides so many different styles of hats, you'll find yourself with a brand new one every week!" - Knit 'n Style

"The results are as varied and tantalizing as you'd expect from the high-class contributors." - Yarn Market News

"I am really impressed. The book includes hats from more than 20 designers, and I feel like I would make and wear almost every one." - CloseKnit Portland

"Add a little panache to 25 stylish hat designs with tips for getting creative with specialty yarns and embellishments." - Crafter's Choice Book Club

"An incredible anthology of hat patterns by my favorite designers." - Fuschia Knits Blog

"Lovely collection of 25 new hats from a list of well-loved designers." - Knit Circus Magazine - Gifts

"I do admire a nice knit hat when I see it and there's no arguing this collection is full of them." - KnittingScholar.com

"Texture, colorwork, lace - whatever you most love to knit or have wanted to dabble in, you'll find it here. The variety of the designs is huge." - Knitty.com

"The Ruche Beret is also truly a weekend project. You can start one day and finish the next! It's a fast one." - SusanBAnderson Blog

"The hats are cute, clever, fun, fashionable--all with texture, character, and whimsy." - Booklist

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Oct. 18 2011
This is a great book with hats for both beginner and more advanced knitters. There are 25 hat patterns in the book and I would definitely make 18-20 of them. Each hat is shown in several photos. There is one hat specifically for men but I would say it could work for both men and women. It was very easy to find a suitable yarn at my LYS for my first project, the hat on the front cover. Overall, a great book and definitely worth buying.

I do not like knitting from graphs. I think I would have enjoyed this product better if all of the patterns were actually in written form.

Nice hats. I do wish there was more patterns with a bulky weight yarn. There is a lot of patterns with fingerling and DK weight and a few with worsted. The hat on the cover is the most stand out of all the patterns. There patterns are easy to follow with clear instructions. Good for the beginner to expert knitter.
