For a hat that says you're cool, use the hot new Knook to make one of these urban styles from Lisa Gentry. The Knook is a specialized crochet hook that creates true knitted fabric, while the attached cord completely prevents dropped stitches! It's great for beginners or anyone who would like to learn to knit the easy way. Clear instructions on the basic technique are provided for both right-hand and left-hand stitching, while photos illustrate each step. Each of the 7 hats is made using medium weight yarn: 2-Stitch Cable Pattern, 4-Stitch Cable Pattern, Chevron Lace Pattern, Circles Hat, Easy Lace Pattern, Sideways Garter Stitch Hat, and Tassel Hat. The patterns are sized for Small/Medium and Large/Extra Large and call for beginner to intermediate skill levels.
