I recently had the honor and pleasure of reviewing the book, “24 Crochet Hats” by Kristin Omdahl!* This book of 24 crochet hats has something for everyone! With interesting techniques and inclusive sizing for men, women, children & babies.

Kristin Omdahl is the best-selling author of 20 books and I can certainly see why! The patterns included in this book are visually interesting with so many different stitch combinations. Each pattern includes line-by-line instructions as well as a chart.
She also includes a lot of very useful information on making these hats or crochet items in general – how to check gauge, yarn substitutions, how to block and shape crochet items, how to read charts as well as a handy hat size chart.
She includes instructions for a wide range of finished sizes so you can find a hat for everyone.
And, if you need any help with any of the patterns, Kristin will be providing supplemental right and left handed video tutorials on her website and YouTube. No need to fret that any of the patterns will be out of reach!
Once I received my copy for review, I had to make the Julian Hat. The stitch used reminds me so much of the Diamond Waffle Stitch – one of my very favorite stitches! I made a toddler size in a ball of Bernat Softee Baby Stripes I had in my stash. It turned out so lovely in a self-striping yarn!
The pattern was so well-written and it was a joy to make another designer’s pattern. Sometimes it is so nice to take a break and let another designer take the wheel once in a while! 😉
And there are so many other designs I can’t wait to try – the Cinnabunny is an absolutely adorable tapestry bunny crochet hat!
And the Heather Hat has lovely gentle texture!
You can find “24 Crochet Hats” on Amazon or in Kristin’s website shop. Thank you so much to Kristin for allowing me to review her wonderful book!
