I was very excited to get this book, but now I am not so sure about it. There are many hats in the book, many different styles using many different yarns, but there are a few problems.
- Most of them take expensive yarns (Ozark Mountain Handspun, Classic Elite...)
- The yarns are not washable (not so good for gifting in my case)
- Some of the stuff would just not be wearable except in an urban area by someone with a very high level of confidence
- lots of patterns require the ever evil DPNS
+ lots of interesting shapes that could be fun to play around with
+ lot of different colors
- not much for men
So-recommended for those with deep pockets, a very full stash, or hat lovers. Otherwise-borrow a copy from the library.
