There are projects for every skill level. They are modern and fresh. I want to knit many of these. I love the authors added insight on fit and picking certain patterns based on how you would wear the hat, what face shape, etc. Much detail and photos were added for more difficult techniques (ex. german short rows, provisional cast on) Saves from having to go google them. "My two complaints are: 1) Why are there separate categories for women's hats and men's hats. Most of the hats in the book could be for either gender, and I find it really disheartening that patterns are still being gendered. Think outside the box. Many of the "womens" hats would do well on a man. And there were actually only a few mens designs included anyhow. 2) This is a book about hats. With all the detail added, I feel a picture or two, of how to properly measure your head for determining what size hat to make. As well as a chart of common head sizes (toddler, child, teen, adult) if you a making a gift." -- Cindy Jensen, Librarian at Waunakee Public LibraryNetGalley Review: 5 stars Updated 29 Mar 2021 "I am so excited about this book. Wooly Wormhead's hat patterns are my favorites so of course I jumped at the chance to take a peak of this book. The photographs are beautiful and patterns well written. I'm already planning on casting on soon!" -- Samantha Williams, Reviewer at Yarn Reader Youtube channelNetGalley Review: 5 stars Updated 31 Mar 2021 "Woolly Wormhead does it again! "This pattern book is full of hat patterns that you could never find anywhere else. No other designer has Woolly's eye for the unusual. Like to knit flat? No problem, you can knit a short row hat sideways. Prefer a soft slouch? It's here. Earflaps? Sure, why not. Most of these patterns would be ranked intermediate, but there are some that are quite simple. Whatever your preference, there's something for everyone here. "The patterns are well-organized, well-written, and there are plenty of photos and easy charts. My only complaint is that some of the abbreviations had me looking in the glossary, and I'm no newbie. Fortunately, the explanations are clear and easy to find. Personally, I found that the hats run small. I don't have an exceptionally big head, but I always knitted the largest size when testing these. "All of these patterns can be purchased individually on Ravelry, but I highly recommend getting the book. If you're a fan of handknit hats, you'll need this in your library. "Thank you to NetGalley, the author, and the publisher for providing a copy of this ebook in exchange for my honest review." -- Sarah Czarnecki, Reviewer at Jam-Packed Bookshelf About the Author Woolly Wormhead is the best-known knit hat designer in the world. She resides in the UK and was the 2018 British Craft Awards Knitting Designer of the Year, and has published many patterns in publications across the globe.
