5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I knit and crochet extensively and purchased this and the crochet one as they were excellent value and provide different ideas for hats. The patterns are American so you need to understand the differences, e.g. they do not give you DK, 4 ply, Aran, etc as wool requirements, but Worsted weight, etc. However if you go by the needle size required and choose a wool that works...

3.0 out of 5 stars American patterns
Some attractive beanies but th patterns are American and you need to translate the yarn descriptions etc. The patterms are not 'idiot-proof' so not for a beginner. You need to work out how to add stitches evenly etc - a knowledge of knitting is required.

This review is from: Knit Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family: 7 Hip Designs for All the Celebrities in Your Life (Paperback)
I knit and crochet extensively and purchased this and the crochet one as they were excellent value and provide different ideas for hats. The patterns are American so you need to understand the differences, e.g. they do not give you DK, 4 ply, Aran, etc as wool requirements, but Worsted weight, etc. However if you go by the needle size required and choose a wool that works on that size needle and knit a tension square you can't go wrong. You also need to be aware of the different names for crochet stitches too as American double crochet is equivalent to UK Treble, etc, however again there are instructions on the stitches at the back which will allow you to follow the pattern and the internet will also provide the answers. I have so far made 3 different hats from this particular book.

This review is from: Knit Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family: 7 Hip Designs for All the Celebrities in Your Life (Paperback)
This is small booklet with 7 ''look-like-celeb'' beanie hats - all of them really nice and wearable both by women and men. Joyful quick projects with easy patterns that you can do when traveling. Most of knitters could say it is waste of money as these patterns are easily found and available online, but I dont have printer and for me buying and having A BOOK its like a treat. Plus quality of photos are way better in booklet than if i try to print them myself. I love making hats and I love wearing hats so I'm very happy with the purchase.

This review is from: Knit Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family: 7 Hip Designs for All the Celebrities in Your Life (Paperback)
A very nice little book with 7 interesting hat patterns inside. I chose it because the hats are slouchy beanies, which at present seem to be in fashion, and I make hats for the family.

This review is from: Knit Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family: 7 Hip Designs for All the Celebrities in Your Life (Paperback)
Through no fault of the pattern it took me over a year to knit and then it looked daft on me. But the pattern was clear and easy to follow, just should have used the correct ply wool.

This review is from: Knit Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family: 7 Hip Designs for All the Celebrities in Your Life (Paperback)
This book is suitable for knitters with a bit of experience knitting on the round, had to learn the magic loop technique but patterns are fairly easy to follow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Knit Celebrity Slouchy Beanies, 28 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Knit Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family: 7 Hip Designs for All the Celebrities in Your Life (Paperback)
I thought the booklet was a bit misleading. I was expecting to see some celebrity beanies but the images are all models in a pose that makes it look like the paparazzi have taken the pics. It's a small A5 booklet. I haven't tried any of the patterns in there yet - there are only a few to choose from.
