Fabulous! Époustouflant!
This book is simply fabulous! It is original, nice to look at and informative. I will certainly make and wear that wonderful hat with the little bird on top and also the big cosack hat (I had seen it in an article about hats that Mrs Square had written in one of Interweave's magazine, but didn't know there was a pattern for it). My brother wants the Lapon Four corners hat.

I am a fan of Mrs Square. I find her patterns are clearly explained and her designs special, refined and elegant (Knit Kimono Too and Light & Layered Knits for example).

Great, great book that takes away the dulldroms of winter.

Great Fun!
I have not had a chance to try any of these patterns yet, but the book
is absolutely delightful!
If you want to satisfy your "whims" and have fun matching the personality of the hats with the personalities of the people you knit for, this is for you!
