This lovely little book has found its way home with more than one of our staff members this winter. Part of the 20 To Make series, it features a range of knitted hats for both men and women. One of our team found it an ideal way to use up a ball of chunky wool which was left over after knitting letters on some ‘Weasley’ christmas sweaters.
The result was this delightful cable edged beanie hat, we just love the gold colour and it’s very up to date. This hat was knitted with the cable band being completed first, then you pick up stitches along the edge of the band to knit the rest of the hat in double and single moss stitch. Less than a day to complete because of the chunky wool and large needles.
Other hats in the book include a ribbed pompom hat, a lacy beret and even a santa hat. With a few fair isle designs included this book is a great way to use up those odd ends of wool in your stash. The yarn weights vary from 4 ply all the way up to chunky. All the explanations and abbreviations are included along with stitch patterns for all the designs.
