Hats are magical. In the twinkling of an eye, a hat can transport us to another place or another state of mind. Knitting expert Vicki Square, author of Folk Bags, explores the cultures of 25 countries to create contemporary hat patterns to knit. Projects range from super simple to challenging and reflect the rich colors and textures of the world.
From Panama to China, from Nigeria to Russia, this heady collection features a German hunter's fedora, an American cowboy hat, a raffia pillbox from the Congo, a Peruvian hut hat, a Bolivian derby, a Russian Cossack hat, and a Nigerian gourd baby bonnet to name just a few. A chapter on hat basics gets you started and a glossary of terms and techniques keeps you knitting your way around the globe.
