Weekend Hats

Hi Everyone!

Did you catch Ready, Set, Knit this past weekend? Kathy talked to Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre about their new book Weekend Hats. If features 25 knitted hats in styles to make everyone happy, including caps, berets, cloches, and more.

Hats are great because they usually take only one or two balls of yarn and they’re small projects that are super portable. Since they’re smaller than sweaters, hats are also a fun way to try out new techniques.

Melissa and Cecily have some of their own great designs in the book, but you’ll also find chapeaus from many wonderful designers, including WEBS-alums Elisabeth Parker and Cirilia Rose (as well as Melissa herself). Elisabeth’s hat is even knit in Valley Yarns Semi-Solid Hand Dyed.

If you’re looking to use up some of your stash, perhaps for holiday gifts (can you tell what my plan is?), Weekend Hats is a great book to have on your shelf.

P.S. If you love Melissa and Cecily’s hats, check out their patterns – Knitting School Dropout PDFs and Winged Knits Patterns.
