From the Inside Flap
Since 2002, Scandinavian knitting sensations Arne and Carlos have used their unique style sense to translate traditional Scandinavian knitwear designs into individual patterns perfect for holiday décor. Here they share 55 hand-stitched knits on a super-small scale—projects that take little time to make and minimal effort to make well. The result? Knitting that’s fast and fun, whatever your skill level.
You’ll find bold ornament designs in red, white, green, black, blue, and multiple colors, some with a touch of silver or novelty yarn for visual texture. The array of knitted decorations feature classic holiday graphics such as snowflakes, berries, bows, angels, and animals, as well as more ornate patterns often found in Scandinavian sweaters, hats, and mittens.
Whether giving hand-made gifts or adding a touch of holiday cheer to your home or business, you’ll find the step-by-step instructions and fascinating mix of contemporary and vintage color photographs in 55 Christmas Balls to Knit the ideal learning tools—clear, descriptive, and quirky-cool.
With techniques, patterns, and sources of inspiration fondly shared by the designers, you’ll be outright charmed by Arne and Carlos. Their knitting antics are the perfect recipe for holiday décor that is colorful, festive, and delightful.
