April 2015 I love the twenty to make range of books. They offer fantastic value for amazing how to's. Crocheted Beanies is a fantastic addition to the range. Personally I would classify them as slouchies rather than beanies. This shouldn't however detract from the fantastic designs held within the book. There is a good range in the designs and they cover most crocheter levels from beginner up. Some of the designs are in written format and a couple are in chart format. I love the use of different materials, techniques and styles to create such a varying design of hats. I had never followed a chart but even I found it easy enough to make one of the hats I really like this book and have already chosen another hat to make for a friend. I decided to make as my first project the Filet Fun hat. It was a really fun easy hat to make and I love the design. I love the added touch of the flower design as well. It adds that little something extra to the hat. Overall this book offers amazing value for money. You get a varied amount of designs for such a small price. If you want to crochet a hat then this is a fantastic book for you. http://www.crochetaddictuk.com/2015/04/twenty-to-make-crocheted-beanies-review.html * Crochet Addict UK * Issue 12 Crochet hats always make for satisfying and fairly speedy makes.
