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