The ones that I love I really really love, but the ones that I don't are horrid.

However, I've already made two hats from this book (working on a third) and I love the clear instructions.

There is a mistake in Leaves Long Beanie chart though.

What's not to enjoy about quick knitted hats? They are the perfect project (like socks) fast, you can use almost any yarn, you usually only need a skein or two, they are portable, and they are so much fun to experiment with. Like socks, you can wear a hat that is completely outlandish - you'd never wear a sweater with 6 colors and pompoms all over it, but a hat? Totally.

There's a great variety of hats, from a variety of designers who's names you'll recognize, from lace, cables, texture, fair isl

I liked that there were several designers in here, but it really didn't seem like their best work. Not a book that I will knit from.

I have already knit one hat from this book with wonderful results, and many compliments from people around me. I have several other hats on my 'to make' list. The patterns are varied, allowing for a range of tastes, or moods. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The photos give a good sense of what the final hat will look like.

i like 4 of these hats, so that's good at least. but most designers only list one size (21"-23") and honestly for a book written entirely for hat patterns more information, like length as well as circumference, could have been provided. among other things.

I really like this collection of patterns. None are super complex, but most have a degree of sophistication involved. This is a book I could see owning, I liked so many of the designs

I like almost all of the patterns in this book and they look easy enough to do while watching tv or listening to an audio book.

The book has a nice mixture of female/male hats and nice mix of techniques. It also shows how to do a technique.

Liked the topiary beanie dk weight yarn. Nice patterns. Nice layout. Will reread.

Nothing here to replace the few hat patterns I already have to knit. So only 2 stars.

Got this from my library, which is nice. I am not a hat wearer. Only my DD wears them and she is relatively picky about her style. That said, I found a few patterns that I "favorited" in ravelry, so I have some ideas if a someone requests a hat. Hats knit up quick and easy, and are appreciated, but mot by my family. I need some hat happy friends!

This has some really cute hats and many of the patterns are pretty simple. I know I will use several of these patterns. I may need to break down and buy it.

I was mostly interested in the Jared Flood design since I'm a big fan, but there are some other really good designs I'd like to try.

Cute stuff, nothing I have to make THIS INSTANT! May consult again one day when I need a decent gift or something new for me.

Nice little book. I am very picky about hats I would make and/or wear, but there were a few patterns that I would do.

Wonderful photos, directions seem easy enough, I just need the time to make one of the hats that I feel in love with.
