I have a fantastic review & giveaway for you today lovelies! I recently was able to check out The Knitted Hat Book (ISBN: 978-1-63250-221-6, Interweave F+W).

The Knitted Hat Book is full of fun and fashion forward hats for both men and women including beanies, toques, berets, and slouches. Not only are there lots of hat styles to choose from, there are also a variety of stitch patterns including cables, lace, Fair Isle, slip stitch, and ribbing.

Interesting details are the hallmark of this book like this gorgeous "Flora Embellished Cloche" It features a unique gathered side and fabulous flower.

The book also has hats for men like the one shown below.  Need a little help?  There's an illustrated section in the back for basic skills like casting on, decreases, special stitches, gauge, i-cords, increases, and lots more.  When you're done knitting your hat, you can also get help for finishing work, seaming, pom poms and more!
