From the Back Cover
Beautifully rendered, heartbreakingly adorable, and wonderfully wacky knitted caps for newborns and toddlers
Thirty-eight million Americans knit, and that number grows every day. The baby hat is the perfect project for knitters of any level, with enchanting patterns that are easy enough for rank beginners but also interesting enough for the most accomplished needle wielders, in yarns that range from silk and linen to cashmere and mohair.
Susan Anderson's Itty-Bitty Hats presents thirty-eight irresistible designs for infants and toddlers--fun, hip, creative patterns with decorative flourishes that are witty, whimsical, and undeniably unique. The projects are arranged by order of difficulty and accompanied by beautiful photographs, instructive how-to illustrations, and utterly clear instructions (with no confusing abbreviations or insider shorthand). Anderson also provides an indispensable introductory section on stitches, materials, equipment, terminology, and techniques, allowing even the most inexperienced knitter to get started confidently.
Made for boys and girls, by parents and grandparents, aunts and even uncles, and, of course, best friends, the handmade hat is the perfect shower or birth or birthday gift--and Itty-Bitty Hats is the perfect gift for any knitter.

In the end none of the patterns could be tired however as the book fails to highlight that all designs require circular needles. Not being a knitter I did not realise this would be an issue. I raise it to help others avoid the same error.
If you are comfortable with or want to learn the use of curved needles are are not looking for the cutsy hats you see used in newborn photos though this is not a bad book

What a lovely book! Made me smile from beginning to end. Would thoroughly recommend and some patterns can be converted into adult.Published on 12 Nov. 2013 by karen lock
Some really beautiful hats in here, though virtually all knitted on circular needles, which are easier to work on than they look.Published on 6 Aug. 2013 by Mrs. Sally L. Wilson
I wish that Americans who like to sell their books in the UK would use our measurements/needle sizes as well as there own. Read morePublished on 19 July 2013 by RitaD
