New Book Added To The YOH Library - Cabin Fever: Need A Hat? No-Sew Knitting

Yarns of Hope has received a wonderful donation - all the way from Canada!  The moderator with Chemo Cap Pattern Library on Ravelry offered a few copies of  the knit book Cabin Fever: Need A Hat? as a giveaway and chose our group to be one of the recipients!

Geared for knitters ranging from beginner to intermediate, this book's strong feature are the thoroughly detailed Size/Gauge & Yardage charts that create endless possibilites for all the hats featured in this book and essentially for any hat conversion outside of the book as well.  If you want to make an adult hat with chunky yarn, the chart will provide the suggested needle size as well as the estimated stitches to use.  If you want to make the same hat for a newborn using sock weight yarn, the chart has that information also.  Include this with the basic pattern and presto!  You have the same hat in two different sizes with different weighted yarns without having to break out the calculator!

Check out all the hat designs through the above link and then check out the book through YOH.  I personally am anxious to try designs # 3, 5, 7, 8, 11 & 12.  Heck, I think I'm going to make them all!
