5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book for the More Experienced Knitted Wanting More!, 12 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Knit Hat Book (Paperback)
I've purchased a second hand copy of this book through Amazon.

One reviewer said they were disappointed as the hats were too fancy for using day to day! I'm astonished - there are oodles of patterns out there for the 'everyday mundane' hat (and plenty of websites offering these patterns for zero cost), so how is it that you even want this book to be anything other than the style depicted as a dead give-away to the content on the cover? Plus, what's wrong with being stylish to go to work? You can always knit another one if the first gets damaged. Knit a different one for every day of the week, or even the month/year, there's so much style and variation to work through.

Anyway, over time, I've become an ardent Nicky Epstein fan - which is never something I will do lightly. This book has continued in the line of over-delivery on my expectations, and I'm thrilled to add it to my collection of books which will become very worn from the high amount of usage it will receive. Nicky provides plenty of instruction for changing the design options and embellishments so that you have the power to create a unique item of your own every time. She even throws in recommendations to adjust for if you have to alter the yarn - something a lot of books don't provide (see my review on Knit One Bead Too and can often cause issues in finding the right brand and yarn while still making the pattern work.

One thing I do feel the need to point out on Nicky Epstein books - while I have admitted to becoming an ardent fan, now with most of her books on my shelf - please never feel the need to fall into the trap of owning every single one she produces. If you read the descriptions and reviews appropriately, you will be able to identify where information is repeated in a different book for the purposes of the market target for that specific book. There is no need to own every single Epstein book, so be discerning about what information it is that you want from her, choose accordingly, and you will never feel let down or disappointed.

Nicky Epstein is an Enabler type of author. She offers you all the techniques and ideas with patterns that you need to get style in your life, however she then moves on to massively assist you in making your own designs for uniqueness thereafter.
