Synopses & Reviews
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.
