By combining simple knitting techniques with soft and colorful yarns, Fiona Goble has created a brilliant collection of 35 animal hats and more, ranging from cute and cuddly, to wild and woolly.
Choose from hats for tiny babies such as Buzzy Bee, Tweet the Robin, or Rudy the Rabbit, or make something to keep bigger kids cozy, from Blizzard the Reindeer (complete with bright red nose) to Otto the Octopus. Most of the hats can be made in a range of sizes and many of them come with matching accessories, such as boot toppers, wrist warmers, and baby bootees. Each hat has easy-to-follow instructions and uses the simplest of stitches, with clear step-by-step illustrations and photographs to help with the all-important features, making this ideal for beginner knitters as well as more experienced ones. With essential yarn information as well as a helpful techniques section, you’ll be ready to start knitting gorgeous animal hats in no time.
