We've had so much fun knitting ARNE & CARLOS Christmas Balls using our in-house, worsted weight, 100% Peruvian wool, Epic. We like the larger size we get and we love the fun designs that A & C have put in their book. For our holiday "making" celebration, we've put it all together in a kit for you:
- "55 Christmas Balls to Knit" (Soft cover book) by ARNE & CARLOS.
- Three balls of RCY Epic in three festive colours: Snow, Royal Red and Forest.
You'll also need:
- Knitting needles for working in a small circumference: double pointed, magic loop or 2 circulars as you prefer; (Cynthia uses 3.5mm / US 4 needles)
- A stitch marker;
- A yarn needle; and
- A small amount of wool or polyester filling.
About 55 Christmas Balls to Knit:
For many years, Scandinavian knitting sensations ARNE & CARLOS have been delighting crafters around the world, using their unique sense of style to translate traditional Scandinavian designs into quirky, colourful, and endlessly fun projects of all kinds. But perhaps the most beloved example of their charm and versatility is the “Christmas ball”: a cleverly small-scale and deceptively simple pattern that can be adapted to feature any colour or combination of colours, any motif—including wintry classics like snowflakes, bows, and angels, and more ornate Scandinavian-inspired designs—and just right for decorating trees, tables, windows, and more! This fan-favorite collection of 55 Christmas balls features fast, fun knits perfect for handmade gifts, festive decor, and sharing the holiday spirit. Also included is a blank template so that you can design your own motifs!
