Hip Knit Hats
40 Fabulous Designs
by Cathy Carron

These chic hats look nothing like the ones your grandmother knitted! Caps, buckets, and boxes, berets and tams, and felted hats - you'll find 40 patterns, and nearly a hundred variations that will complement anything in your closet.

Every knitter will adore these timeless, fashionable, and extremely wearable hats, all photographed on models in a chic urban setting. Most of the projects involve knitting in the round, so a thorough overview explains the technique, as well as basic hat forms, choosing a yarn, and accessible techniques such as felting. Try a shaped ribbon yarn hat with equally decorative and functional earflaps. A simple brimmed felted wool hat becomes a fashion statement with a brightly colored decorative edging. Whip up a chunky seed stitch cap in just a matter of hours. Even the simplest designs are stylish, using great color combinations and yarns with irresistible textures. And, because the patterns come with both medium and large sizes, you can knit to fit. 

Cathy Carron has a background in business, marketing and advertising. She has previously owned a children’s sweater company and currently knits professionally for her business Pond Edge Bespoke Handknit Hats. Her hats are sold in retail outlets in Connecticut and New York City, where she currently lives.
