“It really doesn’t take long for Arne & Carlos to put the whoa into Christmas woollens.” – Kirstie Allsopp, about 55 Christmas Balls to Knit
Who doesn’t love Christmas balls? They are colourful and festive and bring joy to many – whether you are making them or using them to decorate your home. Norwegian knitwear design stars Arne and Carlos bring fun-filled festive crafting to knitters everywhere with their fabulous ornamental balls. They are easy to knit, easy to stuff and once you get knitting you won’t want to stop. Inspired by traditional Norwegian patterns, each ball is a unique handmade creation ready to become a holiday heirloom. The 55 Christmas balls in this book are ideal for the tree, wreaths, mantelpiece, table decorations and window dressings, and make perfect gifts for friends and family.
Reviewers say these patterns are very clear. However, you need to understand circular knitting and know how to knit with two strands. They also recommend that you have five double pointed needles or circular needles on hand to start these ornaments. (Arne and Carlos have thoughts about the type you should choose.) Even people just getting started with colourwork found the patterns very easy to follow.
The book is also full of stories about Norwegian holiday traditions. You may even decide to make some of them your own!
55 Christmas Balls to Knit is bursting with creativity and inspiration. It has just one set of instructions for making the balls and 55 unique patterns. Extra creative knitters can even adapt the motifs created by Arne and Carlos for hats, mittens or even sweaters.
