Book review by Pia Thadani - Stitches N Scraps

Disclaimer: I received a free review copy of  Crocheted Beanies & Slouchy Hats from Stackpole Books. Although I accept free products for review, I do not guarantee a positive review.  My reviews are based entirely on my honest opinions. All images of copyrighted material are used with permission.

For many of us, cold weather is just around the corner, which means it's time for some new hats! Crocheted Beanies & Slouchy Hats has you covered. With a wide variety of styles to suit every taste, you may want to make a bunch for holiday gifting too!

There are three basic styles of hats in the book - the classic, close fitting beanie, the round and wide slouchy hat, and the long and droopy slouchy beanie.

If open and lacy is what you like, try the Diamonds Slouchy Hat on the cover, or the Seashell Slouchy Hat above. Need something quick and simple? The Ziggy Beanie may be the one you're looking for.

Solid is more my style, and there are plenty to choose from. One of my favorites (though how can you just pick one?) is the Stained Glass Slouchy Beanie with it's layered colorwork.

 I particularly love that these designs play with different stitches and construction methods. Each hat is unique and gives you a chance to learn something new. Some are worked top down, some are worked bottom up, and there's even one that's worked sideways!
