I have another new knitting book to show you. It’s 1000 Fabulous Knit Hats by Annie Modesitt. This copy is from the library, but I want to get a copy of my own.
Why? Partly because it’s beautiful, and partly because I’m in it! Well, not me, exactly, but some of my hats. Last year, Annie Modesitt put out a call for pictures of knit or crocheted hats. She was hoping to get a thousand to put into a book. And she did. She chose 10 to feature with their patterns. The rest are eye candy and inspiration. And there is a lot of inspiration here. A hat is a perfect project; small enough that it gets done quickly, and big enough to be a canvas for a new stitch pattern or color combination. Who doesn’t love a hat?
Here are my Pippi hats:
And my watermelon baby cap, which is a free pattern here on my blog:
And my spiral rib cap, also free.
My Elsa would have been in here, too, but she hadn’t been designed yet.
I’ve spent some time paging through, and I want to knit more hats!
