Lauren Owen: IMG The Other Vampire



It's a wild and thundery night. Inside a ramshackle old manor house, a beautiful young girl lies asleep in bed. At the window, a figure watches... Continue »

Fast, fun, and relaxing, crocheting a hat is a rewarding way to practice basic skills, try out new stitches, or tackle particularly challenging patterns. Hats invite experimentation and creativity. The finished piece is so small that pulling out rows of stitches or going all the way back to the beginning of a project is never too heartbreaking, and making more than one is a natural urge!

Crochet Hats! features 15 original patterns for pretty, new looks — classic as well as cutting edge, sunny and light as well as cozy and warm. Created for every skill level, Candi Jensens hat designs also encourage stitchers to venture beyond their comfort zones and experiment with new yarns, different color combinations, and more complicated stitches. Hats provide the perfect opportunity for playing with new ideas.

From cables to brims to beads, Jensens hats feature something for every head. An adorable baby cap makes a lovely shower gift, a colorful cotton sun hat screens summer beach rays, and diamond shapes on angora and wool sparkle on the ski slopes. Many designs will work for men too, with a bit of color adjustment.

Crochet Hats! will be irresistible to fashionable crocheters who want to show off the terrific looks achievable with a ball of beautiful yarn and a hook.

Nin@, June 21, 2011 (view all comments by Nin@)
Hello,

I have been a knitter for a long time. Crochet is something I have always wanted to do. I know the basics but have only used crochet for trimming knitted items.

For years my husband has been asking me to crochet him a hat that fits his head!!
I've always knitted him hats,now I would love to crochet one for him.

Winning Candi Jensen's book would be ideal especially with so many different designs!!
If I'm a winner I would gladly add 'Crochet Hats' to my library....that is after I have crocheted my husband a new hat!! After that I will make a few hats for charity. Our local hospital needs baby beenies. I Know I will get a lot of use out of 'Crochet Hats'.

Our 20th Anniversary is on August 3rd and I would love to give him a new crocheted hat that really fits!!

Thank you very much, Nin@
