An illustrated introduction to the wide world of knitting by way of making your own hat
Knitting is an excellent handcraft and something people love the world over. For crafting newbies, knitting can seem highly daunting: You need needles (but what size?), yarn (but what weight?), and a pattern (but what kind?), and very quickly knitting can start to resemble another language, tricky to navigate and even harder to master.
Knit a Hat teaches you everything you need to know about the previously scary craft: the needles you’ll need, the yarn to use, and tried-and-true techniques to get you started, keep you going, and help you wrap everything up. Alanna Okun is an expert knitter and offers very accessible instructions: Her idea of starting with a hat rather than a long scarf is sure to make this book easy for even the wariest of beginners.
Building on our crafting how-to series, Okun welcomes readers into the knitting community and invites them to knit a hat with confidence.
Includes color illustrations
