24 Crochet Hats Book Review

Friday, March 11, 2022


Hi I’m Blanche of here to review “24 Crochet Hats” by Kristin Omdahl. 

Let me just say on the outset, that I am truly a KO Fan Her heart warming story of providing an income for herself and her son by creating her business. And her enthusiastic presence on social platforms (Instagram, Facebook, her You Tube Channel) and appearances on The TV Program “Knit and Crochet Today” make her an inspiring leader in our industry. 

This ebook doesn’t disappoint. It serves up hats to grace the heads of men, women ,children and infants. Many sizes are provided for each. Not only are there 24 easy to follow written patterns, but there are sections on:

How to read patterns
How to measure gauge
How to weave in ends
Various ways to block your work
Yarn substitutions
Size tables 
Crochet Hook Sizes

All of the above make this a veritable one stop resource for creating crochet hats. Each hat utilizes different crochet stitches , techniques and yarns. The video tutorials for the patterns of “24 Crochet Hats”are provided on Kristin’s You Tube Channel. 

My favorite hat is Kendra. Perhaps, it’s the color of the yarn that intrigued me (bubble gum pink) or because the stitches are created with Broomstick Lace and a Cabled brim. But that being said, this hat is a stunner. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t include a mention of Kristin’s Fund Project Kristin. A portion of every sale goes to help survivors of domestic abuse. I hope this review will encourage you (if you don’t already) to follow her account where you can buy her ebook , purchase her yarns, and crochet accessories.

Blanche xx
