KNIT MITTENS! is a colorful die-cut book that's small enough to tuck into a knitting bag, backpack, or purse. The book begins with an easy-to-understand, illustrated overview of the basic techniques followed by 15 fun project patterns (with instructions for a range of sizes) bound between sturdy, die-cut board covers. Each pattern includes the following: a close-to-life-size color photo of the completed mitten or hat; a brief introduction to the pattern; materials and equipment lists; gauge information; a color chart; special tips and hints; and a detailed drawing of any unusual techniques involved.

I like this book even though most of the hats, I could have come up on my own. I really like the series it is a part of. They all give lots of options for sizes. That is appealing
