by Jo Allport

An interactive knitting book featuring hat patterns divided into three separate parts, letting you flip the pages to design your own ideal combination of brim, body and crown.


Do you struggle to find that illusive, perfect-for-you knitted hat pattern, never finding the one that’s just right? Maybe you really like one part of a hat design and a different feature of another. Wouldn’t it be great if you could mix and match those sections to create your own personalized version? Publishing this October 2022 you will be able to do just that with 10,000 Knitted Hats by Jo Allport, a clever and fun flip-page book, which allows you to build your very own pattern – with over 10,000 combinations!

In my opinion:

My "hat" goes off to you Jo Allport for this brilliant idea of creating your own design combos. 10,000 Knitted hats is a book that gives one an opportunity to design their own hat.  Simply flip over the pages to choose your favorite and start to knit. I love this concept! As a knitting designer, I love having options and this book definitely gave a variety of unique and clever ideas. I also noticed that when the pages line up exactly, you can find a design that has been knitted before. Simply flip over one page of the crown, body, and brim at the same time. I'm going to try to knit the yellow hat which is the four-point decrease (crown), parallelograms (body), and lace rib (brim). I have a few Mix & Match children's books but I've never seen a knitting book published this way. Also, the illustrations were well done. I highly recommend this book.
