The Hats of Cooperative Press (part 2)

As promised the tour of hats continues!  There really are a dizzying array of great hat patterns available from Cooperative Press

First up today is Stitching in the Stacks edited by Sarah Barbour. 

Knitting and books; a match made in heaven.  (I have patterns in this book but they're not hats.)

The Dewey Decimal Hat by Brenda K. B. Anderson.
California Revival Knits by Stephannie Tallent is a glorious book full of intricate patterns inspired by architectural elements from the California Revival movement.  
Stairsteps Tam features glorious colorwork!

And speaking of glorious colorwork, take a look at Extreme Double-Knitting by Alasdair Post-Quinn.  He takes double-knitting to new heights.
Falling Blocks Hat.  Wow, wow, wow!

Cascadia by Amanda Milne and Fiona McLean has rich patterns for the whole family inspired by the lush Pacific Northwest. 

The cables on Tidal Flats mimic the ripples in the mud.

How about something for the kids?   

Seriously, how cute is the Jack and Clara Wintry Ensemble by Peggy Bumgardner?  From Fresh Designs: Kids.
And as long as we're talking about kids, Head to Toe by Katya Frankel is devoted entirely to quick knits for the small people in your life.  

Simonside features an unusual cable pattern. 

Hitch edited by Stephannie Tallent is a really fun book chock full of patterns inspired by Alfred Hitchcock movies. 

Souvenir of a Killing by Kristen Hanley Cardozo, can't you feel the vertigo?  (I told you there was a dizzying array of hats.)

Knit Edge Magazine has also featured some lovely hats over the last several years. 

Signal Flare by Patricia Martin from issue 1.
