Booklet Review & Giveaway: Math for Hats & Topped for a Year

Posted by on Aug 3, 2011 in Knitting | Comments

8/10/2011 UPDATE: This contest is now over, and the winner has been contacted.  Thank you for your interest!

Keep checking back for more great giveaways from lovely designers and companies.


Giveaway Rules: One entry per person, and you must be a Craftsy member to win(Click here to become a member.)


Tot Toppers designer and Crafsty member Kate Oates has outdone herself this time!  She’s created two great booklets that go great together.

The first in the series is called Math for Hats and teaches the knitter exactly how to create great-fitting hats for any family member.

About Math for Hats, Kate says, “Whether you’re a knitter who’d like to know the secrets behind hat sizing to better understand patterns you’re working on, or one who inspires to knit a hat up from scratch, this book will walk you through the aspects to consider.”

Each of the patterns in the booklet is color – coded and matched with a description at the margin, so that you can easily follow along with both the pattern and the instruction.

After you’ve worked your way through Math for Hats, you’re ready to move on and tackle any of the projects in Kate’s book “Topped for a Year: 12 hat patterns.”

This cute, professionally-printed, 12-page booklet is Kate’s first collection of patterns and is adorable!  There’s a baby-or-child hat pattern for each month of the year. The booklet also includes templates for making brims for the hats, which is really clever!  To read more about Kate and to find more of her patterns, here is a link to the Tot Toppers website.

If you’re so new to hat knitting that you’ve maybe never even knit in the round, check out Craftsy’s new online knitting course, Circular Knit Lab: Hats Four Ways.  In this class, you learn to knit in the round while making three cute hats.  It’s a great way to get started on your circular knitting journey. (And, if you register through this post, you can take the course for 50% off.)

Kate, kind knitter that she is, has generously provided us with a copy of EACH of the booklets above. If you’d like a chance to win BOTH booklets, leave a comment below.  We’ll choose a winner at random next week.

    I love the hat w/ fins and have been looking for a book w/ a proper stocking hat. October 2nd I will be turning 50 and without really thinking about it I started knitting hats to give away at my party. Saturday October 1st at Hales in the back stage area. Seattle Wa, come if you are in the area :] Possible 100 guests… raffle tickets? door prizes? anyway I am on hat number 34!!! since the first of May! I am stuck in a bit of a rut. Watch caps, beanies, cabled caps and jesters caps w/ a squarish top and tassels are about the extent of my knowledge. I would love to have some new ideas and patterns. Thank you for considering me, Cheers, Jenni

  86. Lish says:

    Looks like a great book. I hope I won. I love knitting hats.

  87. Tera says:

    Love the hats!

  88. Lynn Norzinskay says:

    I would love to win these books. I knit and crochet hats a lot, and learning the math and structure would be so helpful. I often do my own thing with the patterns I use, sometimes not so successfully. So I need some instruction for success. The templates for making brims piques my interest even more.

  89. Diane says:

    You didn’t say if there was a link to a form to fill out for the entry or if we just leave a note here. I would love to win because hats are my favorite thing to knit, especially now that it’s too hot to hold much yarn. I love to knit hats for gifts and give the overflow to various charities.

  90. Jill Garrett says:

    always love to add to my knitting library… I learned to knit from books. I’m happy to say that I purchased the Fit to Knit Class and am finding it an invaluable help. The math in knitting has always been a mystery to me so I would be very interested in reading and learning from Math for Hats. I never thought I’d have grandchildren and now I have 3 – under the age of 3!!! ( no twins, just 2 different families) so I would love all the different hat patterns for children.

  91. Sabrina says:

    I’ve never knitted a hat. This giveaway looks like the perfect opportunity to learn. “pick me”

  92. Reina says:

    I never knitted a hat in the round so this would be awesome to win!! :)

  95. Ann Camarata says:

    Love hats…the eternal perfect stash buster for any type of yarn and person.

  96. Laura says:

    Great booklets… I always have trouble knitting hats for me and my family because we seem to have heads that are generally to big for the largest size given. So I always have to make adjustments. And learning to do that right before seeing the mistake in my knitting afterwards would be agreat improvement.

  97. Lila Tonche says:

    Hats, hats, hats. I love hats! The chemo patients love them too!

  115. Rebecca says:

    These look great, especially Math for Hats! I always like to understand the WHY of things (why x number of stitches, construction of items, etc.) so I can customize. I don’t have kids but I’m surrounded by babies these days (lots of friends having babies). Hats are a great thing to knit because they’re quick and might get some wear before the kids grow out of them.

    The idea of a book that tells me how to adapt hats for my family definitely appeals to the “mathie” in me. And, the patterns look great.

    The books look great. My knitting group is makng hats for the hmeless this fall and the books would really help.

  210. Edyta Niemyjska says:

    I made my first hat when I was 16. Once I realized that it didn’t fit my head (after about hours of compulsive knitting) I started again and again. Now, 10 years later, I’m back to knitting and I still use my “old technique” of making the hat again if it does not fit.
    It would be great to have a book with instructions of proper hat-making.

  211. Lara says:

    I would love to have them both! I love making hats.
