10,000 Knitted Hats by Jo Allport
10,000 Knitted Hats is a fun and clever flip-page instruction book for designing and building your own unique headwear creations.
This interactive knitting book contains photographs of different hat brims, bodies and crowns that can be combined in a total of 10,626 ways to create unique hat patterns. Once you’ve chosen your design, turn over the pages for the correct written pattern for that combination of parts. You can then use the handy embellishments section to add any extra features to the basic design. Each hat is worked flat and then seamed together using mattress stitch for a fabulous finish. This makes it easier to mix and match all the various design elements.
The hat brims, bodies and crowns use many stitches, some familiar and others new. Find colour work, both easy and more challenging, along with slipped-stitch patterns, cables, lace and texture, all explained clearly in the handy techniques section. Aimed at all ability levels, there is something for everyone. You’ll never need another hat book!
