Hunter Hammersen


U.S. designer Hunter Hammersen says, “I was supposed to stay in school for a shockingly long time, get a respectable-sounding job, and quietly become a proper grownup. Instead I got distracted by colorful string, started writing knitting books, and fled to the rocky coast of Maine where I spend a frankly alarming amount of time in my back yard taking pictures of yarn. But don’t tell anyone. … I’m still slightly worried someone will find out I escaped and try to drag me back to that other life.”
