Craft Book Review - Animal Hats by Vanessa Mooncie

Craft Book Review - Animal Hats by Vanessa Mooncie

Knitting needles at the ready! That time of year is approaching again where wool hats and gloves replace shorts and t-shirts, and we can’t wait for the frostier weather and winter fashion!

If you fancied creating your own woolly number, this book is a great place to start, especially for animal lovers! With 15 different patterns, why not stitch your very own hat in the form of your favourite animal? From kitsch koala bears to fluffy foxes, you’re sure to find your spirit animal (and hat).
 
Animal Hats is suitable for all levels of knitting ability, plus there are size variations so both cheeky monkeys and adults alike can wear this glorious headwear.
 
Each animal design has row by row instructions for each section of the hat, and specifies which size (child or adult) each instruction is for. As well as written instructions, there are also picture charts to visually assist each project.
 
At the end of the book is also a guide to lining your finished hat, with the choice of a fleeced or knitted lining, making sure your head and ears are extra toasty!
 
If you are new to knitting, any kind of knitting project may seem a little daunting, but worry not! At the end of Animal Hats is a basic knitting guide, with detailed instructions and reference images to help you get started. You can also find the exact materials used to create these hats, and choose to use these or source your own!
