Take a gander at the cute cuteness in Mommy & Me Crocheted Hats: 30 Fun and Stylish Designs for Kids of All Ages.

Even if you’re not a crocheter (yet) I think this may entice you. For one thing, the crochet instructions at the back of the book are easy-to-follow and have an excellent step-by-step photo section of how-tos that I wish I’d had when I started crocheting.

Then, of course, there are the patterns.

If you haven’t attempted crochet before but have been considering it, I think this might be an excellent starting point for you. Hats are small and portable and this book’s instructions are clear and understandable—an excellent combo!
