Knitting is an excellent handcraft and something people love the world over. But for the crafting faint of heart, knitting can appear daunting; you need needles (but what size?), yarn (but what weight?), and a pattern (but what kind?) Very quickly, knitting becomes another language that’s tricky to navigate and even trickier to master. Knit a Hat teaches you everything you need to know about the previously scary craft: the needles you’ll need, the yarn to use, and triedandtrue techniques to get you started, keep you going, and help you wrap everything up. Alanna Okun is an expert knitter and a very accessible instructor. Her idea of starting with a hat rather than a long scarf is sure to make this book easy for even the wariest of beginners. Building on our crafting howto series, Alanna welcomes readers into the knitting community and invites them to knit a hat with confidence.
