Cool Crocheted Hats: 40 Contemporary Designs by Linda Kopp is a great book for the crocheter who wants to step it up to the next level in making fabulous and funky hats! The designs are imaginative and the directions are clear. With excellent photography of each hat showing the project to its full advantage, you won't be disappointed.
Crocheted accessories are all the rage—and these stylish hats, created by top-notch designers, will appeal to readers of all skill levels. Even the simplest ones feature great color combinations and irresistibly textured yarns. Not only that: the stunning photography and unique presentation will enhance their appeal. All the backgrounds, from a Paris train station to an art deco building, are in evocative black and white, while the models appear in full color. The hats live up to their settings, too! A Kufi-styled crown cap captures the exotic magic of 1920’s Morocco. A houndstooth lidcap features a bold, two-colored design. In addition to the 40 patterns, there’s advice on felting—which results in a denser, warmer hat—and on a range of fashionable embellishments.
