Next up for review:
This is The Knitted Hat Book: 20 Knitted Beanies, Tams, Cloches, and More by Interweave Editors. Published September 16, 2016 by Interweave, it is 128 pages of hats! You can view all the patterns on Ravelry, here.
There are patterns for guys and girls both, and there is lace, texture, and colorwork: a little something for everyone.
Some of my faves:
The Frolic Paperbag Hat by Alexis Winslow is made from fingering weight wool in two colors (the pattern calls for Quince & Co. Finch). This is such a cute solution for someone with a lot of hair. Don’t know what to do with your ponytail? Here’s a solution!
The Forge Graphic Toque by Meghan Babin is another two-color hat knit from fingering weight wool (in this case, Brooklyn Tweed Loft) but it is stranded colorwork instead of stripes. Think how fun this hat would be using a gradient for the background and black for the contrast.
The Timber Cabled Toque, also by Meghan Babin, is worked in Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Worsted and is a great, classic unisex hat. For a more luxurious hat, you could knit this up in a cashmere blend. Yum!
Those are just a few. Which one is your favorite?
And . . . who’d like my review copy?
