Knitting Hats & Mittens from Around the World

Knitting Hats & Mittens from Around the WorldKnitting Hats & Mittens from Around the World: 34 Heirloom Patterns in a Variety of Styles and Techniques

Kari Cornell, Editor

Gifted by Voyageur Press

Reviewed by Audrey Huggett


You can take a tour in knitting from around the world in the comfort of your own home when you have Knitting Hats & Mittens from Around the World: 34 Heirloom Patterns in a Variety of Styles and Techniques in your library.  This gorgeous book offers a fascinating sampling of knitting styles from every corner of the world.  Flipping through the pages of this book really gives you a good idea of the different styles of knitting; being able to compare Japanese patterns to North American patterns acutely reveals the subtle differences between the types of knitting.


The layout of Knitting Hats & Mittens from Around the World is perfectly tailored to give readers a good sense of the patterns contained within the book.  Each pattern has several large, color photos that display different detailed aspects of the patterns.  I was glad to see the photography was of such good quality, because it is an important supporting feature for the theme of this book.  The high quality pictures help to communicate the particulars of each pattern.  I loved looking through the patterns and seeing the variety of ways that you could knit a pair of mittens and a hat.


I was impressed with the amount of detail given for each pattern.  Every pattern was several pages long, because Cornell chose to provide numerous pictures, large detailed charts, clear instructions, and backgrounds for the patterns, as well as extensive notes.  If you are interested in finding out more about different knitting traditions, this is a great book to pick up.
