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
