Some days are just great mail days, aren’t they? From the sounds of our Yarn Alliance members on the Ravelry forum, they got a great mail day when their parcels began arriving earlier this week. And if you’re in the SpaceCadet’s Mini-Skein Club, you’ll be getting a great mail day very soon. As a business owner, most of my mail tends be bills and other (boring) official business, but I had a really fantastic mail day last week…
Hunter Hammersen, the author of the Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet series and designer of some of the most deliciously delicate patterns I’ve ever seen, sent me a copy of her latest book, Curls. Based on wonderfully curved shapes that drape beautifully around the neck and shoulders, Hunter’s patterns can become a cowl, a scarf, a shawl, or something even more dramatic. And because they can be knit in any size yarn at any gauge, the creative options are wide open.
I pulled the book out of the packaging and flipped through it quickly. I was looking for one particular Curl — the one that I knew Hunter had designed in SpaceCadet yarn. It’s Ianthine and it uses the incredible drape of SpaceCadet Oriana yarn to full effect. The smoothness of the yarn allows the beautiful lace stitchwork to really open up, and the fantastic hand of Oriana’s 8-ply construction is perfectly suited to the drape and shape of one of Hunter’s Curls. I can’t tell you how excited I am that she chose this yarn for her beautiful Ianthine!
But you know what’s even more exciting? There was a second copy of Curls in the parcel that Hunter sent me. So now, let me see… What should I do with that?
Giveaway: A Copy of Curls and a Skein of Oriana!
How about I share it with one of you? That’s right, let’s give it away to one lucky winner! And because nothing is more torturous than having a wonderful new pattern but nothing to cast on with, I’m throwing in a skein of Oriana yarn too! How fun is that?!?
To enter, just leave a comment on the blog post, telling me the thing that appeals to you the most about Hunter’s designs (be sure to enter before Feb 1, 2015 — see official rules below).
And then, please take the opportunity to pay it forward by sharing this giveaway with your knitting friends on Twitter, Facebook, and Ravelry. And for every share you make, I promise the Universe will send you a cosmic wave of good luck. Because, seriously, who doesn’t need a cosmic wave of good luck?!?

Love her patterns.
I love the unique shapes and textures they all have. Stunning.
I like the deceptive simplicity of her designs. The stitch pattern is beautiful, but the overall effect is simple beauty, not at all fussy. I also like the flexibility gauge/yarn/size, etc. – very smart!
The patterns are so feminine, which I just love.
Love these patterns, can’t wait to try them. So versatile!
I like all the different textures and that they are very feminine.
I love the flow. I’m trying to knit more things that have unexpected shape and design and think these patterns are just what I’m looking for.
What beautiful patterns! I love the textures and these projects would be awesome to wear with everything my daughter and I have (My daughter tends to sneak my needlework out to dress up her outfits). Being able to knit the projects at any gauge makes these patterns very appealing.
I love these patterns! Pick me!
I love how each pattern is different and really showcases the yarn.
I love how each pattern is unique (patterns in some collections all look the same) and they are all gorgeous.
i love that you can knit with the amount if yarn you have. They are so pretty!
These are truly amazing patterns!
The organic quality of the designs is what appeals to me.
I love those patterns! They look like they will go with anything.
I enjoy the variety — they are all organic and obviously of a theme, yet all have differences that make them stand out from each other.
The patterns are beautiful. I also like being able to knit until I reach the size I need.
I love that the patterns are gauge-agnostic. I almost never achieve the same gauge as what’s listed in the pattern, and I’m often scrambling to find the right needles. Sounds like with these patterns, I won’t have to worry anymore!
Love the shapes!
I love the flow of these shawls. Very feminine and versatile
I love the intricate details of her patterns, they flow beautifully.
Love how the patterns are so feminine!
I love the variety of textures available in a single collection. They would be perfect for just a few skeins of really beautiful yarn.
I love how natural her patterns are, either in texture or inspiration. They’re always so well done and sooo lovely to look at!
I am intrigued by how the same basic design element unfurls in so many different ways. Each curls looks like a new design.
I just love the delicate and unusual stitches. Plus every design while beautiful is so functional too! Can’t wait to try one!
Hunter has come up with a new way to think about shawls and scarves that makes them fun to create and easier to wear. I am looking forward to working on a couple of the patterns.
I love that each one is uniquely different. I love them all!
This collection looks so interesting, and I am having a hard time not jumping on the Curl bandwagon! They look so much more organic than traditional shapes.
I love trying out interesting stitch patterns and Hunter’s designs are always deliver.
I like that the patterns are not the massive, look-like-you’re-buried scarves and cowls that I’ve seen so many of. I wouldn’t manage to stand wearing any of those for more than about five minutes, before I’d rip it off. These look eminently wearable.
Pick me, pick me! I would like to start at the begining and knit all the patterns! One is not enough! The shape and texture are both flattering and wearable.
These beautiful scarves are like a gorgeous hug wrapped around you. I would love to make one of each for my friends in my knittsters group.
Patterns are beautiful yet do-able!
I love the shape of the designs. Many of the designs would complement modern and vintage outfits!
I love how with this shape, the ends of the shawl spiral. They all look so elegant and unique.
I’ve been in love with this designer’s patterns since I discovered her. What a wonderful giveaway. Her designs are just unique….and so well thought out. There’s nothing like them and that’s what appeals the most.
I love how the cowls in this book appeal to a wide range of people and styles.
I think those shapes are so beautiful. I love how the shawls drape on the models
I just love how classic, yet interesting Hunter Hammersen’s designs are – something for just about anybody’s personal style, for just about any occasion & never a dull knit! I just LOVE the Curls collection!
They are all so beautiful. Hard to choose one over the other, but love that the scarves and shawls are so versatile.
I love that these can be done with different weight yarn. Great way to use up some stash and come away with a beautiful item. I think I will make them as christmas presents.
I love all of Hunter’s books, and I am really intrigued by this shape of wrap. If I don’t happen to win, I will immediately put this on my birthday wishlist!
Love all the varieties and uniqueness of the patterns. One for every day of the week depending on your mood!
I love the curls designs, they look so fluid and drape really well.
I love Hunter’s patterns, they are so unique and I think she has out done herself with “Curls”. I love them all. I can’t wait to knit the cover “curl” it’s my favorite and I want to knit all the others also.
Really gorgeous designs. Elegante and beautifgul color. I love it.
Thanks for sharing, best wishes
I love the versatility of the projects. It’s a perfect way to find a good use to that special skein of yarn, you know which one, the one that is aouvenir/love at first sight yarn.
These patterns are absolutely gorgeous! They are, as the cover says, very wearable. I thought that even before I saw the cover. I love to knit things that will truly get use, and when they are stunning besides, well that is just a win-win situation! And your yarn… well, its beauty goes without saying.
I have been thinking about trying shawl knitting for the first time. Hunter Hammerson’s patterns are all gorgeous! I especially like like the idea of working in any yarn or gauge.
Love the versatility! Stash busting at its finest!
I like the versatility of the patterns. There is also a good bit of variety, so there is bound to be a pattern for every person’s style. What I also like is that even if a particular project really isn’t necessarily your own style, no one can deny that the pattern is still quite pretty regardless.
I like the different shapes, they all drape so beautifully. I also think they might distract my baby from pulling my hair 😉
I would love to knit any one of Hunter’s wrap designs! They are so different than most patterns I see and have in my pattern stash! I was gifted a skein of Space Cadet yarn recently and am just looking for the right project!
I love how unique and pretty they are
I love she is creative to make different pattern with different colors
The things I like best are that I could use stash yarn. Any yarn in there!! Plus any of these designs would be great with Space Cadet Yarns!!
I have been wanting to try one of Hunter Hammerson’s patterns AND your yarns. This is a perfect opportunity! Love that there are so many possibilities and permutations in these beautiful wraps and bits of warmth. Thank you!
These designs give me the same feeling as having a good hair day — big, soft, round curls. (Don’t ask about what comes to mind on the much more numerous bad hair days…)
I love her designs in this book! I’ve been watching as the book was released and I think what I love most is how most of these have a certain way they drape naturally from the stitch patterns – I’m forever trying to learn how to drape scarves so they look good. Plus her stitch patterns are so unique 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!
I love that she manages to have so many different patterns that are distinct and so different, yet similar. They all seem so very wearable. Thanks for the Giveaway!
I thought this was going to be a hard question because I love everything about Hunter’s designs, but then I realized the thing that sets her apart in my mind are her textures…how all of her patterns have a depth that appeals to the sense of touch in addition to the sense of sight.
Thanks for hosting the giveaway! It’s nice of you to share with us. 🙂
I love how graceful and elegant they are.
I love how feminine they are!
I love how Hunter takes stitch patterns and turns them into unique interesting pieces. I love the curls. Thanks for the giveaway!
Oooh, pretty. And I love your yarn, so definitely a great combination!
Thanks for offering such a generous giveaway! I definitely want to knit Ianthine and a few others… and SpaceCadet yarn would be wonderful to use 🙂
I like the organic shapes that they make!
Love all of the designs in this book and the versatility. Knit a cowl, scarf or shawl and to use your yarns closest to heaven you can get…… yummmmmm
OMG. What a gor-juss book.
I really, really hope I win.
any of her beautiful patterns in space cadet yarn would be fabulous ! I especially like the softness of the shapes & the flow of the pieces which is inherent in the designs.
These are absolutely the type of thing I like to make as my ‘relaxation’ knitting.
I want to make all of the Curls. These shawls look amazing and with your yarn it would be a dream to knit.
Love the whole idea behind Curls in that you can use any yarn in any gauge to knit something beautiful from the boom.
I like the shape of the scarves and that they can be worn as a scarf and as a shawl.
I love that the designs are crisp, but flowy – that’s exactly what I like to wear! 🙂 And your yarn is delicious too!
I was watching the pre-release roll out pics and am just blown away all the different patterns. Love!!!
My favorite is the green, less curly, curl scarf/shawl. If I win the book, that’ll be the first one I make. 🙂
Hunter’s designs are such fun, and I love the versatility of using different yarns
I love Hunter Hammersen’s patterns and want this book!
Lmecoll on Ravelry
oh wow! I’ve been thinking about getting this book! Yes, please!
Thanks for the great giveaway!
I love the shape of these designs. This is the first I’m seeing of this designer, but I’m still fairly new to the world of knitting so I have a lot to catch up on
Hunters designs are so versatile, she really broadens your options and is fearless about it!
I love that her patterns are flexible about the yarn you use (both gauge and amount).
I love that Hunter’s designs are elegant, yet practical enough that I could wear them any day of the week.
These designs are unique and totally gorgeous! Love them!
A perfect marriage showing great stitch definition with your beautiful yarn and Hunter’s patterns
I love the different stitch patterns that are being used
The front cover shawl reminds me of fern fronds, beautifully curling. I am excited to knit from a collection with so many textures and unusual shapes.
I like that there is a wide variety of styles/patterns to suit everyone’s tastes. The “curl” feature of many wraps is so cute too! knittylucia on Ravelry
Love how unique the patterns are!
I particularly like the Magenta scarf in the above photos because of the interesting curl in the scarf tail.
I love knitting accessories and these are so unique.
The thing I love most about Hunter Hammersen’s designs is the intricacy of her stitch patterns.
Love the designs & this would make an absolute wonderful birthday present.
Gorgeous patterns! Love this book! Thanks for the chance!
Gorgeous patterns! Love this book!
the patterns look like wonderful designs cannot wait to try them, i have shared them thank you
these look so wearable. so many shawls and shrugs and scarves are beautiful to look at, but hard to wear.
How I love every one of those patterns – a great variety in form and pattern.
I love that this is one shape and yet each design is unique! Gorgeous attention to detail in every design! 🙂 I have had this in my shopping basket at Rav and have been trying to get through some sweater knits so I can tackle some of these.
They are just all so beautiful!
they are just flat out elegant!
I love the sophisticated beauty of the designs.
I love that the designs are all very fashionable and look like they would be very enjoyable to knit up. Who doesn’t love a entertaining knitting project that turns into a great finished object!
Thanx for giveaway!
I love this book! The shapes are truly stunning and unique. I would love a copy!
The organic forms of the shawls and the easy repeats really appeal to me. Thanks for the giveaway!
I think the most appealing thing is that they are all classy, but modern. Not in your face modern…does that make sense? I’d love to make each of these shawls!
I love the pattern book and love your yarn! What a great give away!
This book is a rare treat because the patterns are so unique from one another. I especially love the shawls with curly tendrils one one point of the shawl.
What exquisite patterns!! They’re simply beautiful!
I love how intricate her designs are without ever appearing fussy.
I love the lightness of the designs and the elegance.
I like the way the shawls are not all perfectly centered and the beautiful curly drape.
I love how wearable all of the curls are. The shape gives them all wonderful drape. Thank you for this opportunity.
Her patterns are very unique looking and look like they would be fun to knit – thanks for having the giveaway 🙂
Love the look of the shawls!
I love the way Hunter designs her patterns to have the perfect balance of the color of the yarn and the stitch pattern.
I love how elegant the shawls drape.
The fluidity is amazing. Everything flows and drapes most beautifully. The knowledge that any yarn/any gauge works is something that puts all the designs over the top!
Ok love the drape and the simplicity of some of her patterns.
I love that her designs have so much variety, yet at the same time, they all have an air of femininity. All of them are so lovely! The versatility of being able to use any weight of yarn is icing on the cake!
I love the flexibility. Any yarn, any gauge! Woot!
This collection is very unique with a new construction.
Oh the elegance of the patterns is what stands out the most.
Whether socks or shawls, Hunter’s patterns are true variations on a theme – every pattern is unique and interesting, so while you may get used to (for instance) a construction method, the stitch patterns are so different that you keep coming back for more.
I love most the fact that they are just beautiful knits, the lace, the colors, beautiful patterns.
I love each design and yarn weight/gauge options. They look especially fun to wear!
I love that any gauge works which makes any addicted knitter smile that they can pick up the needles and knit these wonderful shawls
Wow! I’ve knit some of the marvelous socks Hunter has designed and now there are all these wonderful shawls! Must make one of these!
I really like this book because of the beautiful shapes. The yarns used are lovely too. 🙂
What I love most about this collection of patterns is the variety. I find it frustrating when I buy a buy and most of the patterns turn out to be “variations on a theme” and maybe even “too much of a good thing”. But this has lace in Sinopia, a solid texture in Chlorochrous and even cables (I love cables) in Icterine. No way of getting bored here.
I’m off to share this competition with my local SnB Rav-based group.
I love the uniqueness and elegance of these patterns. Each one will be unique to the knitter as they are able to choose the yarn weight that they prefer. Space Cadet yarn colorways are always unique to the individual skein and they are lovely to work with, making each FO a one of a kind.
I like the textures she uses, especially her lace patterns.
I have not knit any of Hunter’s designs before but I am seriously digging the mustard cable-style shawl – pretty sure I could rock that in some of my own hand-dyed fibres.
I love that you can knit them up in different weights and I love how the ends curl around on some of the designs.
I love the uniqueness of each shawl. They are beautifully designed.
I love the patterns in this book because of how simple and elegant they look!
I love the intricacy of Hunter’s patterns. They knit up beautifully and are enjoyed each time I wear them. I also love Spacecadet yarns 🙂
any shawl that works well in heavier yarn is a winner for me and these are gorgeous!
i love the way Hunter creates her designs around a consistent theme. Her designs are just lovely.
I love the subtle details!
I love how feminine they are. All of them have a simple beauty that will accent every woman’s loveliness.
Lovely designs. Ianthine in Oriana would be my first choice
Every time I see this book I fall in love again!!!!
I just want a huge cup of coffee, a crackling fire, watch the snowfall, my needles in hand and this giveaway right next to me. What a perfect day.
This book caught my eye because Hunter uses a basic shape but transforms it by uniting a stitch pattern that showcases the characteristics of the yarn.
I’m really beginning to understand why certain fibers are blended for yarns and it isn’t about just about color and weight when selecting yarn for a project.
Thank you for this giveaway and congratulations on your selection for Curves!
Love how her designs are so unique. Love the Filemot in Curls!
I love the variety of stitch patterns and garment shapes. It will be hard to decide which to knit first!
I love the intricacy of the patterns! The curls are beautiful and the versatility of the shawls are amazing!
Hunter’s pattern are just so organic. I think I pretty much own them all. The Curls are so comfortable looking and more fun than straight triangular shawls.
I like the versatility of the designs and the many ideas on how to wear them.
I love how the lace patterns in Curls are visible from a distance–beautiful.
I love the variety of textures and show they drape so beautifully!
Hunter’s designs use fresh stitch patterns and I love that! Such a difference from the same-old same-old. Thanks for the great giveaway!
The lacey curl on the cover is A*M*A*Z*I*N*G!!!! All her work is stunning, in my opinion.
I have thoroughly enjoyed Hunter’s Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet books, and Curls looks like it contains the same type of inventive designs. I’m looking forward to exploring the versatility of the Curls!
I love the drape — and the pink one that’s all spiraly reminds me of seashells or something. So pretty!
I love patterns that work with any weight yarn !!! Curls are versatile ~
I love how they can be sized up or down – I love big shawls!
I love how beautifully they drape, and how different each pattern is from another. Definitely something to fit anyone’s personality and tastes. Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!
I love the detail and intricacy of Hunter’s patterns.
I love how they are functional, but oh so gorgeous! No plain scarf these, the show off the stitches even when casual wrapped around your neck.
I love how her patterns are so versatile and you don’t have to spend so much time trying to match the correct yarn with a pattern and could possibly use yarn you already have in your stash. They are all just such beautiful patterns. Thank you for the awesome giveaway.
I really like the different levels of shawls some look fairly easy and some look difficult seems that it would be a great book to work through as I advance my knitting skills.
I really like how the patterns allow for different yarns and gauges and still create awesome finished objects!
I love her designs because of the details. She is amazing!
I like the variety of stitches, from simple to complex, yet they all give stunning results. KittenWhiplash on Rav. Thanks for the giveaway!
I love her designs because they are just so darn pretty! Thanks!
I love the versatility – they can be knit with any weight yarn or gauge!
I’ve been seeing this book around the internet a lot lately and would love to win a copy! One of the things that I like most about the designs is that they are customizable to different yarns.
I just love all the beautiful patterns, thanks for the great giveaway.
I love the different styles and ideas given to wear each shawl.
Ooh! I just became obsessed with this book when my pal Misty got it (we talk about it for a second here: http://handmadepodcast.com/episode-13-giant-man-socks-brioche/ ). Soo happy one of your yarns was included!
I love the way some of the shawls curl around when they’re done!
I really like how wearable some of these shawls look.
I love the playfulness and how they’re not static but fun.
I just think all of her designs are so beautiful!
The curve of these patterns are my favorite thing. It makes them extra wearbable!
I love the beautiful designs. This book is definitely on my wishlist! I also Love trying yarn I’m unfamiliar with so winning would be fabulous.
What a wonderful giveaway!! I especially love the patterns because they are so feminine and just lovely. Thanks for the opportunity!
These patterns are just lovely! They are so chic, yet simple enough to be worn dressed up or dressed casual. They’re also unique, not your average looking design that some designers just whip up. I would absolutely love to cast on each one othese gorgeous designs!
I love how wearable the Curls look (and the look of the ones that have curlicue ends!)
I love all of Hunter’s designs, and have knitted several of her socks, but these shawls (wraps?) take the cake. Whatever you choose to call them, this is the most beautiful book of patters I have ever seen. I want to knit them all. I plan to knit them all. What a gifted and amazing designer.
I love the “any gauge” part, and the intricacy. There’s nothing more fun than sitting down to work out an elegant lace pattern!
I love how feminine they are.
I’m so excited about the variety! Some are dressy, some are casual; some are pointy, some are squarish; some are floaty, some are twirly; it goes on and on! Thanks for letting us know about this must-have book.
I love how graceful and elegant the designs are.
I love the organic nature of these designs; to wear one would be like being clothed in ferns and water.
Actually, I’ve been saving up my pennies for this book ever since I saw it a couple of weeks ago. I love the fact that you can make beautiful scarves/shawlettes/wraps (or whatever you want to call them) at any gauge and size. It just seems like such a versatile book!
I really like the new book by Hunter. Nice variety of stitches in the different patterns. Lots of possibilities… 🙂
Gorgeous designs and wonderful drape in every one.
Thank you for the giveaway! I loooove oriana and that book looks so wonderful to knit the perfect shawl.
Backtobasics on rav
Amazing patterns + amazing yarn = I’m in!
The picture on the cover just made me squee. I do love a challenge and these shawls and wraps are gorgeous!
I love Curls because it is the first book where more than just a couple designs appeal to me. If I won this I would love to make them all! I don’t know how I would decide which one to start with.
I love these shawl patterns! I think anyone who wore any pattern would feel so special & beautiful & that would show to the outside world too!
The wearability of these shawls is amazing! Each one can be draped dramatically over your shoulders or scrunched up around your neck and will look amazing either way.
Such beautiful versatile patterns! I love the drape and of course, the curls – so fun and yet elegant at the same time!
I adore these patterns. They’re all fantastic and look doable and eye catching. I’m pretty excited to get this book eventually!
Well, if you saw my hair, you’d know the reason!!! Seriously, I was attracted to the maturity of the the designs, the fact that they are different and, as we head into the summer, they seem to be lighter weight and beautiful!
I love the textures and details in each design.
I love the versatility of the collection so many shapes, construction styles… you can be entertained for hours!
I love all the wonderful ways to wear a simple shape and all the gorgeous yarns and textures!
I love the designs in Curls! I don’t own the book yet (it’s on my list), but I love the many different ways they can be worn and draped. I can’t wait to make some myself. Thanks for the lovely giveaway! <3
I love the drape and elegance of her shawls and you can’t ask for more flexibility! It’s the perfect go-to book when you are looking to really engage your creativity and come up with something amazing! When you add wonderful yarn to a great pattern, the sky is the limit!
What a great collection – there’s not one I wouldn’t knit. As a previous commenter noted, that’s pretty rare. Love the drape and the variety of the shawls featured, and that they can be done in a variety of weights for different effects. And a skein of Oriana to make one of these fabulous shawls? Who wouldn’t want to win?
I love how clean and modern these look and the bright vibrant colors! Very inspirational!
I like the unique way she finds to use all of the different stitch patterns in her designs.
I love the elegance and the design of Hunter’s patterns. I also really appreciate the versatility of this collection!
What a collection of gorgeous shawls! It sounds fantastic that they can be made as scarves, cowls, or shawls and with any weight yarn. Of course, a skein of SpaceCadet yarn would be great to use. Thanks for the give-away!
I am a newer knitter (but long time hooker) and Hunter is a new to me designer! I LOVE the variety in this book!!! I usually only go after single patterns because most books only have 1-2 I would really use. This book is fantastic though and even if I’m not chosen by the ‘random gods’ to win, I will seek this one out to purchase!
I love the look of her designs. As a somewhat newbie knitter (August 2014) I’m still learning but the one pattern that she has: Metopsilus porcellus Cowl has captured my interest. I plan to buy this later when funds are available. I will also be sharing this giveaway on Facebook.
i have loved these designs since the first day i saw them, they are just so wearable and look brilliant, so much drape and look so good, the fact they can be made with any gauge yarn is an added bonus thank you for a brilliant give away shared on fb woolytanis on rav x
I love it when I see a pattern and my fingers start to flex, like I have to cast-on immediately. There were at least a half dozen patterns that literally leaped at me from the screen! I would love to win this book…and, of course, the gorgeous yarn that comes with it.
I love the intricate lines of the designs. They remind me of ancient Celtic art.
Every single one of the designs is a winner which is very rare indeed. What a great offer (and my daughter who told me about this has a birthday in February so wouldn’t it be fabulous if one of us won!)
I would love to receive a copy of this book and your yarn! the patterns are so beautiful, I want to make them all!
I love all of these patterns because each of them are unique. And each pattern is workable ,they are written so well making each pattern easily accessible for even the most novice knitter.
What awesome designs! I want to make all of them. And who can resist great yarn.
I love all of the shapes, but I especially love the cover design. Absolutely gorgeous!
I love the versatility of the designs. Everyone has that one skein of something gorgeous that you don’t know what to do with, this book solves that problem! Every design is amazing, and is perfect for showing off not only the lacework, cables, etc., but also the beauty of the yarn. IN one word, I would have to say this book is perfect!
These patterns have stunning textures and lovely drape! I would love to knit one up in Space Cadet yarn!!
Those are lovely patterns! I love how they’re all similar and yet each one is different.
I think I like all the shawls in Curls! (Seriously – I can’t just pick one or two to mention!)
Thanks for the giveaway!
Love the shape of these! The curl seems to be perfect for draping around the neck and shoulder without added bulk or having to constantly adjust. Pavonated is my favorite.
Hunter’s designs are so detailed! It’s amazing how much each element fits perfectly into the overall design. I also love that the Curls can be knit at any gauge. What a great way to play with new skeins of yarn!
i really love how the edges of these shawls bias. plus, with curls in my hairs, it might be “meant to be” for me to k it the curl shawls too! 🙂
These patterns are exactly what I’ve been looking for! Trendy scarves in beautiful stitch patterns. Love!
I have been “dying” for this book since I saw it online a few weeks ago! I love the unique designs and the way each shawl drapes. It is also a bonus that you don’t have to worry about gauge. Thank you!
Wow, how lovely! I adore patterns that don’t require gauge. And I love shawls & cowls & scarves, so versatile and always enjoyable knits, and perfect for the gift box for last minute needs! I’ll have to pick up this book if I don’t win…and maybe a skein or two:)
I love the fact there are so many styles to select. And the type of yarn and needle size is endless. I can pick yarn from stash and start a project right away. Each pattern is beautiful.
I love knitting lace and texture patterns and Hunter’s patterns are beautiful and challenging.
My ravelryname is : Loves2Dance
Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway.
Wow! All of the designs are lovely and very wearable! I love them all. 🙂
I love the fact that her patterns are all very trendy and fashionable looking rather than a scarf that only a mature person would wear. BTW, I am a mother to 5, mature, and like to stay fashionable. These scarves would look great on any age!
Wow Stephanie! Great Giveaway! I had already been anticipating this release — It would be great to win the book and your lovely yarn. Anytime I see a design of HH, you can just sense her commitment to design, intricate, yet appealing and with the feeling of do-ability. I also like that these can be done at any gauge. Thanks for the opportunity.
I love the versatility of the curls patterns. That first one is stunning! I need this book just for that pattern.
The lace on the cover photo is gorgeous and I love how many of the patterns helix around themselves, and for once, it looks good!
That top project is KNIT?! It is stunning – and so out of the ordinary from regular lace shawls. I’m going to have to make one for myself 🙂 (asimplehomestd on Rav)
Hunter is brilliant at pairing textured stitches and lace stitches in new and evocative ways. The combinations she put together in the patterns in Curls are so beautiful and show the yarns to their best advantage! However, the pattern, Curls, is one that is as much art as it is function and I love it best of all the patterns in the book.
I have loved Hunter’s designs in socks, but haven’t ever ventured into them because all of that hard work and detail would be on my feet, where it is hard to show off, I made very excited for these shawls, especially since they are designed to stay on, sometimes that is the hardest part of wearing hand knits. I’m very excited to knit inward of these, even if I don’t win, although we all hope we do: )
I love the wearability of the curved pieces; the way they hug the neck. I am always cold, and love to wear little shawlettes to keep warm – it does not hurt if they are knitted from lovely yarns as well – it’s like wearing warm jewelry 🙂
I really like the flexibility of the patterns – any yarn, any gauge!
Love the variety, lace and not lace, shawls and cowls, curl, drape and style.
This book is on my list of definitely buy as soon as I get some money, but how awesome would it be to win it AND a skein of your yarn!
I love the idea of making with any gauge. Very useful and such pretty patterns.
I think that Hunter’s patterns are lovely and challenging and I’ve always loved a knitting challenge.
What a beautiful book. I love that the patterns can be knit at any gauge.
I am a ‘shawl addict’ & these look beautiful 🙂
The versatility of using different yarns and gauges is what appeals to me the most. When I buy a book or design I like being able to get the most out of it with the various yarns that catch my eye. Very exciting patterns and the yarn looks yummy!
I love these designs–the thing that stands out to me is that I want to make ALL of them. The designs are so diverse but they are all wearable with so many different things and through all the seasons. Beautiful work!
The designs are unothadox, unusual and fun both for the knitter and the wearer. I’d love to win a copy but in the meantime I’m waiting patiently until May 29th when Amazzon Uk will have it in stock.
Amazing and beautiful designs! I love the shape and the drape and the lace! I will definitely be knitting one of these in my one of a kind Space Cadet yarn. I would love to own a copy of this book! And, of course, a skein of yarn to go with it;-)
A pretty shawl makes a most lovely gift. It can be any size, no fussing with gauge, and like these patterns, can show off wonderful stitches and fantastic yarn. I would enjoy knitting my way through this book
I love Ianthine and the Oriana yarn it uses in the picture. I would love to win!
Patterns that are so versatile that you get to choose the gauge AND the needle size?! On top of which, they’re elegant and easy to wear?! Yes please! 🙂
The designs are classic and elegant. I love the yarn selections! I would like to work throughs the entire book. I have not tried your beautiful yarn yet. Dark skies and plume look amazing. Thanks for the chance.
Love all those curly shapes but especially the one on the cover!
I love how the curls work with a variety of yarns
Hunter’s designs are elegant, unique, and always lovely. Some remind me of intricate botanical patterns – I love them all. The yarn is exquisite -what a delightful giveaway. Thank you.
Hunter chose a beautiful design to showcase your yarn. I like the intricacy, the size of her designs, and the way they drape so gracefully. Lovely.
It looks like a fascinating exploration of stitch patterns and geometry, and they all look wonderful and VeryWearable!
They look so delicate and lovely! These designs would make anyone happy
Each pattern is so beautiful. I like every single pattern. That is quite rare. Love this book. Yarn is icing on the cake.
The designs and the yarn paired together …. I don’t think it could get better than that !
I love the shap of the Curls…like a hug to wear!
Hunter has given us such a gift with her new book! The Curls are just beautiful!
I love how feminine they look. As much as I love geometric designs, I also love the feminine designs with a lovely drape. I agree with a previous poster that upon closer inspection of the patterns they are all very awesome. Thanks for the chance!
Love the ability to use any yarn in almost any amount! And her designs are lovely!
I love how feminine and drapey they are, they look like the perfect spring accessory!
I adore the elegance and drape of her designs…. So much to choose from!
Beautiful designs, beautiful photography, her books are treasures. Her designs put the lace in service to the garment rather than forcing the garment to serve the lace.
Love this new book. The patterns are innovative and will present a challenge I can’t resist. Combined with your yarn this is a winning combination.
Wow – I am astounded by these designs. They’re so incredibly lovely. I would love to own a copy of Hunter’s book. I especially love the fact that they can be done with any gauge yarn – but of course, I wouldn’t say no to a skein of Oriana to knit with!
Beautiful patterns. Looks like just like the kind of thing I love to knit and wear and give to people as gifts too.
Her patterns are very feminine and classy . You can dress them up or wear them with jeans. Love the versatility. I would love love love to own this book AND a skein of Oriana yarn. I have used it in a mini skein and it is a lovely yarn indeed!
I love the way they look wrapped! The pattern still shows through beautifully, and they look so elegant!
I love the drape of Hunter’s Curls. I am always befuddled about how to wear shawls, but these designs take out all of the guess work. They fit the body so well.
I love the elegance of the designs. I can see using up my stash working from this book.
When I look at these, I can see the love in each design. It is as if each one has it’s own personality. I want to knit a shawl for people in my life with love into it so they are wrapped in love and elegance.
Oh, I love the details! Shawls often have those details, but rarely does something smaller. The scaling option makes curls very flexible. Your Oriana is beautiful!
The concept of this book – flexible amount and weight of yarn and flexible gauge with so many pattern options and such lovely finished objects is genius! The curl with the Oriana is gorgeous as are so many others. Hunter has a detail oriented classy style to her work that is very appealing.
Love her patterns. So versatile
All of these are elegant, timeless, classic. It’s not if- but when I’m going to find the time to start one.
I love the drape and the various designs on each pattern. They are so visually interesting. I know they would be a challenge to knit!
I love that each pattern is different and unique. Plus, they can be knitted in any type yarn.
I love the texture of the stitches and the challenge of making them.
These design are just lovely. And teamed with SpaceCadet Oriana – it just doesn’t get any better!
Hunter’s patterns are just so different from all the others. She has a certain aesthetic that is truly unique, so much so that when I see a new one on Ravelry, I know it must be one of hers. They’re special.
I love the styling of the garments– they look incredibly wearable! And across the board gorgeous! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Wow – those are some gorgeous wraps. I love the stitch definition and way the patterning is put together, as well as the idea of multiple gauges.
I love how some of these patterns do appear to curl naturally. I am IN LOVE with the pattern on the cover – SO ELEGANT!!!
I love all of the patterns…the shapes represented in them, and, in some, the borders. I’ve never seen a book in which I’ve liked every single pattern but that’s the case here!
These look like a lot of fun!
I love a pattern that is really different in texture and that will teach me something new about how the stitches flow together and how they impact the shape and fall of a garmet. This book looks like a great add to my library. And who wouldn’t love free SpaceCadet yarn? Gorgeous!
I’m reposting because I noticed my email address was incorrect.
Several of the patterns caught my eye and I would love to add them to my “to do” list.
I love the way they drape and I can see my mother wearing one of these and looking very elegant.
I love the way she uses such gorgeous stitch patterns and makes them wearable.
There are at least two patterns I ” must” knit…the book seems very well written and the pictures are great. I would love to win the book and add a few patterns to my to do list!
I love the stitch definition in the patterns. They really pop! Plus, they are so versatile. I can see me knitting and wearing almost all of them!
I love the drape of the final product of her patterns. What a beautiful collection! Can’t wait to start knitting one of these!
Theyre all so lovely and so different. Lots of opportunity to learn new knitting skills.
I love the way Hunter uses old stitch patterns in new ways! What a gorgeous collection!
Love the designs hands down, period. Gorgeous. The designs are feminine with beautiful drape. All the designs look interesting and possible knitting projects.
I love the lines in the designs of her pieces.
I love the designs in this book! And what better way to try Space Cadet yarns than winning this giveaway
I love how versatile they look! Pretty but can be worn professionally or with
Casual dress, or to add a pop to a formal occasion! Love the look of the book!
I like the elegant look and drape of the designs and who doesn’t like the SpaceCadet yarn? These designs could bring wearing shawls/shawlettes into the modern era. I can see Stevie Nicks wearing one of these designs while performing on stage!
I love making cowls and scarves and these are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
Her book is so beautiful. I love all of the shawls and need to knit them all. I would love to win this book!!!
i love the beauty of the designs! They are so elegantly feminine.
I really like the variety of the shapes of the scarves and wraps she includes. I especially love the one that curls down I. A curlicue at the bottom! Thanks for doing this, Stephanie
These are so delicate looking, and each has such interesting “curl” details that they would jazz up any plain top. They also look fun and interesting to knit!
Ooo this book is on my wishlist! I absolutely love these designs and I would really like to make some of them with Space Cadet yarns. I love how they are truly designed to flatter. Fabulous!
I like that the patterns are written for any gauge. On top of that, the patterns look classic and timeless.
Love all these designs and would love to try out your yarn.
I really admire these designs and the way they can be adapted by using different yarns. I have already seen a friend knitting one of these patterns using a fine mohair yarn. It looks just gorgeous and inspires me to make some of these ‘Curls”.
I’ve always wanted to make a shawl or infinity scarf but thought they looked ‘granny’ or would be too bulky on my already overweight frame. I love how these are modern, yet classic at the same time. I love the colorways used and their delicate patterns would be so fun to wear. Now…. do I have anything nice enough to wear them with!!
Every pattern shown above in Hunter Hammersen’s Curls is appealing. They are so feminine and drape so beautifully. The book and a skein of SpaceCadet yarn. Wow. What a way to start 2015
The shape of Curls allows the project to be easily worn. And since Oriana is so luxurious the combination is exquisite.
These designs are so beautiful! I can almost feel the luxury of these wraps trough the screen.
I like Hunter Hammersen’s designs and the fact that they are versatile. That I’m able to knit them with any size yarn.
I love the look of all of those designs; they’re so varied and yet all extremely beautiful. Something for every occasion. 😀
i love the elegance of her designs. I’ve looked through Curls on Rav and love that there are more patterns there I want to knot than not. That’s the sign of a good designer and a wonderful collection.
