Mommy And Me Crocheted Hats – Book Review

cro mommy hats book 0414

This adorable book by Kristi Simpson is full of yummy caps designed for Mommy and Child to wear together (and a few for Dad too!).  These designs are fresh and stylish and will appeal to all ages.

From traditional to whimsical, you’ll find your crochet skills stretched and honed.  More traditional designs include brick stitch motifs, shell stitches, and flower and pompom add-ons.  Your desire for whimsical designs will be fulfilled with cute hats themed like a horse, bubble gum machine, googly-eyed zombies, floppy lamb’s ears, and pig-tail hats.  Dads will enjoy being paired with the little guys wearing pirate hats complete with eye patch and the Bearded-Dude Beanie.

Kristi has covered all the bases here.  Each design is photographed from several angles so you can clearly see what the finished cap should look like.  You’ll also appreciate that these hats are crocheted with readily available yarns like Red Heart, Bernat, and Lion Brand.  Obviously, you can substitute pricier yarns for any project or just use what’s already in your stash.

There are 30 designs in this oversized paperback book.  You’ll rely on the Visual Index at the back of the book, showing a thumbnail of each design, as well as the well photographed stitch and technique guides.  There is a lot crammed into these 138 pages, making this a good choice for beginner to advanced crocheter.  If you enjoy making caps for loved ones or for charity, this book belongs in your library!
