Reviews - What do customers think about Hats: A Knitter's Dozen (A Knitter's Dozen series)?
great book Jan 31, 2007
This is a terrific book, loads of patterns I just cannot find here in Australia.
To Each Her Own Jan 16, 2007
I thought, after reading one of the previous reviews, that I should go to the bookstore and look through the book before buying, but I needn't have worried. While there are a small handful of "jester"-type hats in this book (what hat book doesn't have an assortment of these?), mainly for children who usually enjoy the offbeat, I am overall pleased with the selection and variety. Several of the hats are quite elegant and sophisticated, with Nordic, Fair Isle, snowflake, and a wide variety of other designs made from a good assortment of yarns and colors to please every fashion palate. And being part of the Knitter's Dozen series, I feel comfortable that the instructions will be carefully "knitted through" and edited so I won't find myself stuck in the middle of a project.
The cover is deceiving Aug 3, 2006
On my seemingly endless mission to get a good solid hat book, I thought my quest was over after seeing the cover of this one. How wrong I was. There is not one single hat in here that I would knit for anyone, not even an enemy. The layout is great, the readability is excellent, but whole book seems to be about how silly you can make the hat, rather than showing some good wearable ones. I was very disappointed, as you can probably tell.
excellent hat book...not many "too goofy to wear" styles! Nov 7, 2005
I really like this book in content and presentation. Clear pictures! Best of all...stupid looking, court jester hats are kept to a minimum. Most of the patterns that are listed for children have adult instructions which I always value. I hate it when a lovely hat only has instructions for an 18 inch head.
The patterns cover a variety of yarn weights and techniques. Plenty of lovely sophisticated styles in this book to please almost any hat knitter.
