CRE­ATIVE CURLS

The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves -

Filled with won­der­fully curv­ing shapes that drape around your shoul­ders beau­ti­fully, the new book from Hunter Ham­mersen is a de­light! Curls 3 is the lat­est in her se­ries of pat­tern col­lec­tions of­fer­ing asym­met­ric ‘curls’ that can be made small and worn as cowls, or made longer to cre­ate scarves or shawls.

The fo­cus is on tex­ture, from the el­e­gantly sim­ple eye­let stripes of ‘Apatite’, to the sculp­tural lace of ‘Mer­li­n­ite’ and ‘Zincite’. A smart chevron pat­tern worked in twisted stitches dec­o­rates the ‘Howlite’ de­sign, while ‘Charoite’ fea­tures a ca­ble pat­tern worked in a gra­di­ent yarn for a so­phis­ti­cated look.

The pat­terns are de­signed to be knit­ted at any gauge, in any yarn, and are all charted. £19.99 from www.search­press.com; also avail­able to down­load for £22 from Rav­elry at http://bit.ly/curl­s3­book

The book has 11 curv­ing, el­e­gant shawl de­signs
