Crocheting for Grandbabies

Even though I'm not a grandma and not even close to being one, I really liked this book. This book had very cute designs and shows you how to make each little animal hat out of yarn. What I liked as I leafed through this book was that it even showed you how to start crocheting the hat and it teaches you what technique you need in order to make that design.

Even though I cannot make heads or tails with crocheting, I will still commend the effort the author did in writing this book. I just liked leafing through the pages and looking at all the cute things I could make, if I ever learned how to crochet.

Sized from newborn to 12 years old, the 19 projects in this book are designed to grow with kids and become their go-to favorite hats. All the hats and booties are both beginner-friendly and budget-friendly, using machine-washable acrylic yarn and time-tested knitting techniques for quick baby shower and children's gifts.

Even if you're new to knitting, Gramma Nancy's Animal Hats (and Booties, Too!) provides encouraging words of advice and plenty of clever shortcuts. With Gramma Nancy's tried-and-true patterns, you'll find just the inspiration you need for your own knit-with-love creations.

Knit up the cutest little animal hats and booties, including a pair of elephants, a cheeky monkey, and an adorable bunny hat with matching paws. These fun and fabulous animal hats will delight new parents, and they're a snap to knit.
