Check out some of our favorite indy businesses for chances to win gorgeous knitting prizes! No purchase necessary, just some fun clicking.


For two days only, Dec 5th and 6th, visit each website listed below and search for one of these colorful banners:






One banner is hidden on each site – you need to click around to find the banners. Our goal is to encourage you to spend a bit of time on our sites getting to know us, and if you’re interested, sign up for the newsletters to stay in touch.

Once you locate all 5 banners, shoot a quick email to to tell us where you located each banner – you can name the page (ex: Knitcircus Podcast Page) or cut-and-paste the URL into the email. Use the subject line: Treasure Hunt.

Here are the 5 destinations on your treasure map:


All entries received by 6 am Monday morning CST (the 7th of December) that contain the correct pages for each site will be entered into a drawing. One entry per person, please. Don’t worry, your email won’t be used for anything but possibly winning the Hunt. The prizes are fantastic.

But Wait There’s More!!!

Hunter Hammersen is offering a sure-fire way to win a prize! When you visit her site, if you sign up for her newsletter you will automatically receive a free copy of her Precipitous pattern!


Knitcircus thought that was a great idea, so we’re doing a drawing of all new newsletter sign-ups and three lucky winners will receive a 100g skein of handpainted or kettle-dyed yarn from Knitcircus.



But the Treasure Hunt is only on for two days, so track down the clues by Sunday, December 6th before midnight.

Winners will be picked by Random Number Generator and announced the next day.
