most of these are for working in the round, although easy enough to do as rows.
every type of hat you can thing of is here with nice clear photos of the finished project
clear instructions on making, nice to have basic patterns that you can put your own designs to.

Beautiful book with a wide variety of hat styles. Patterns are easy enough to follow although I prefer written to charted instructions, particularly in stitch patterns (cable etc.) Recommended.

I knit hats for myself, friends and charity so I am always looking for inspiration. I enjoy this ultimate inspiration :-)

I've ordered loads from this book, including the hat on the cover. It contains a very wide range of hats in contemporary, wearable styles (mostly) but there are some jester, Andy Pandy and eccentric styles - about 25%. The book is well illustrated and its nice to see all the categories of hats and the history of knitting.

Not the best book for knitting on the go, as its hardback.

Unfortunately I was rather disappointed to find that neither the history, technique or design of hats take up much space in this book.

Particularly disappointing is the section on technique. Poorly illustrated, not very instructive.

After a very thin introduction "History-Technique-Design" (all of them covered within 9 pages) -
the rest of the book consist of knitting patterns for hats (173 pages)!!!

Here a brief overview of the "history-Technique-Design-Content":

History is covered on two small pages including pictures. The pictures are very small and there are no detailed information about historical knitting technique (for hats), vintage knitting as current trend.. etc.. etc.. etc..

Then there is the section "Anatomy of a Hat" - On two pages the terminology of hats are explained (brim, band, crown, cuff, visor, earflaps)
This Section is followed by "Types of hats" - Here more hat terminology is explained and it there are pictures of different hat types (2 pages for this - guess that's ok)

Only three pages are devoted to the technique (Basic Techniques)!! - here there are no pictures to illustrate how to give hats a nice finish - when knitting in the round or knitting "flat" - no special tips or tricks regarding hats are illustrated... The few pictures in this section are not instructive at all: small pictures of models with hats on and how to measure gauge size... no pictures of actually working with techniques regarding knitting of hats! Also a long explanation about yarn selection- this is general information you find in any knitting book, not specific to hats. The information is too superficial and not well illustrated.

Knitting Patterns:
After this very brief introduction the book continues with a long collection of patterns. Taste varies. I admit to have a problem when even the super beautiful models on the pictures look ridiculous with the hats on. There are a few hats that looks ok, but most of them don't. When knitting your own garments you can create a perfectly fitting fashionable piece... why is it then that so many knitting-book-patterned-creations make even the most pretty woman/man look like a complete fool?

Also it is strange to name a book "the Ultimate Hat Book" - and not include a single hat design that fits men!

Overall I am not impressed with this book. Sorry.
