Knit hats for days!
You’ve seen the headlines: Knit hats are hot! More than just a great way to keep your noggin warm, they provide a dash of color and style and are the perfect way to top off an outfit.
Hats are often one of the first projects a knitter takes on (after a scarf or two!) and remain favorites with more experienced stitchers. There are many reasons why knitters continue to cast on for caps. They’re easy to knit on the go. They’re ideal small projects for trying out new knitting techniques and patterns. And because they’re quick to make, don’t use a ton of yarn, and are easier to fit than a sweater, knit hats make great gifts.
We asked our favorite knitwear designers to put on their thinking caps to come up with a fresh collection of irresistible hat patterns for our new collection, The Knitted Hat Book.
We’re head over heels with the designs they came up with. They’ve covered all the most popular shapes and stitch patterns. Simple beanies come alive in Fair Isle, cables, lace, and slip stitch. Buttons, bows, flowers, and appliques adorn feminine cloches. Classic berets and tams are given a fresh look with striking stitch patterns. Unusual shapes, such as a tied kerchief and a tasseled paperbag hat, go beyond the basics. Here are just a few of the hats you’ll find in The Knitted Hat Book:
In this diverse assemblage, you’ll find head coverings suitable for every season and for all knitting skill levels. Best of all? Many of the designs in this fabulous compilation are suitable for him or her, so everyone is covered.
The Knitted Hat Book also includes some great tips from hat designers, such as this one: “When blocking a hat over a plate, thread yarn between the brim and body to cinch tight. This keeps the brim from stretching out.” —Heather Zoppetti
