Description

Beautifully rendered, heartbreakingly adorable, and wonderfully wacky knitted caps for newborns and toddlers Thirty-eight million Americans knit, and that number grows every day. The baby hat is the perfect project for knitters of any level, with enchanting patterns that are easy enough for rank beginners but also interesting enough for the most accomplished needle wielders, in yarns that range from silk and linen to cashmere and mohair. Susan Anderson's Itty-Bitty Hats presents thirty-eight irresistible designs for infants and toddlers--fun, hip, creative patterns with decorative flourishes that are witty, whimsical, and undeniably unique. The projects are arranged by order of difficulty and accompanied by beautiful photographs, instructive how-to illustrations, and utterly clear instructions (with no confusing abbreviations or insider shorthand). Anderson also provides an indispensable introductory section on stitches, materials, equipment, terminology, and techniques, allowing even the most inexperienced knitter to get started confidently. Made for boys and girls, by parents and grandparents, aunts and even uncles, and, of course, best friends, the handmade hat is the perfect shower or birth or birthday gift--and Itty-Bitty Hats is the perfect gift for any knitter.… (more)

patterns come with one or two variations, and the book also has an extensive and well-done "getting starting" section that is very new-knitter friendly but also has some great tips for intermediate knitters.

This is a go-to book for baby showers and charity knitting. The hats are fairly simple and very cute.
