Mommy & Me Crocheted Hats Book Review and Giveaway

This week  I have the pleasure of reviewing,

“Mommy and Me Crocheted Hats”
30 Fun & Stylish Designs for Kids of All Ages
designed by Kristi Simpson for Stackpole Books.

If you love to crochet hats, then you are going to love Kristi Simpson’s latest book,  
Mommy and Me Crocheted Hats! 

The hats in this book are so adorable! Most of the designs use very-readily-available yarns and are sized from Small Child to Adult, although there are a few that are sized for newborns as well. The designs are fun and most are easy to crochet. They would make quick gifts for anyone on your list!

Kristi’s latest book has lots of colorful photos and ‘how-to’ examples and has a great pictorial of Stitches, which could help even the novice crocheter. There is also a section on ‘How to Read My Patterns’ outlining all you need to know to crochet from one of Kristi’s patterns.

Stackpole Books has comprised a ‘look book’ to showcase all 30 crochet patterns.
You can view the look book HERE.

She is also the genius behind RAKJ Patterns where she sells her self-published designs.

There is something for everyone in Mommy and Me Crocheted Hats, from playful to warm to cute to interesting; this hat book has it all!  (see Visual Index below).
