“Gramma Nancy’s animal hats (and booties too!) by Nancy Nielsen, book review

This beautifully illustrated book of knitted hats and booties for children will inspire even the most reluctant knitter! There are numerous hat and bootie patterns for children in the animal theme. The book is divided into forest favorites (bear, beaver, etc.), Jungle Jubilee (lion, elephant, etc.) and barnyard buddies (lamb, duck, pig and more). Each pattern has a high quality photo of the finished product, along with very details direction including multiple size patterns and finished product sizes. The beginning of the book devotes several chapters to tool and materials, gauge and fit, plus the authors specific instructions for assembling these cute creations with special attention to the faces. And at the end are illustrations for knitting techniques.

This is a well organized and thorough book! This would make a wonderful gift for the knitter in your family, or to make gifts for the little ones in your family.
