Great pattern books for beanies to knit and crochet
If you would like more inspiration, have a look at these two great books for knitting and crocheting hats:
Weekend Hats by Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre is a collection of 25 stylish patterns for knitted hats and beanies for both men and women. All projects are described in detail over approximately 4 pages each, with photos showing the finished product from different angles.
The patterns suit different skill levels, from beginner to advanced. As the authors note in their foreword: "Hats provide the opportunity to try new techniques without committing to a bigger project, such as a sweater. They allow us to indulge in luxury yarns that we might not invest in for larger projects. Best of all, hats can be quickly knitted and make great handmade gifts."
Would you like to crochet instead?
Easy Weekend Crochet Hats by Jennifer J. Cirka has a collection of crochet patterns for hats and scarves for enjoying the great winter outdoors - go skiing, tobogganing, ice skating or bush walking and keep your head warm.
Patterns range in style from classic beanies to cute projects such as the princess and pixies hats. There is definitely a project to suit everyone in the family!
Includes detailed pattern, step-by step instructions, many photos and a stitch glossary .
