Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Speaking of gifts, you'll want to knit a few hundred of these ornaments for the holidays designed by Arne and Carlos. Use them to mark place settings, delight hostesses, create centerpieces, festoon wreaths or adorn your tree—or all of the above."  —Vogue Knitting on 55 Christmas Balls to Knit

"The idea of an Easter tree, complete with rabbits and hens, just might be addictive to knitters of any age. Scandinavian clothing design team Arne and Carlos document their new decorating trend for the spring with approximately 30 patterns to create for Easter balls and eggs to hang, accompanied by a very skinny white rabbit and a brown Brahma-like hen." —Booklist (January 2013)

"This book is full of designs for the sorts of balls made famous in their Christmas book, as well as Easter eggs, a bunny and a chick. The pictures of the finished objects show off other springtime ephemera and are so cute they might make you want to move into their studio." —www.knitting.about.com

"You will find you won't stop smiling. Their books are almost magical in their miniature vignettes.There is so much to look at in their photographs." —www.examiner.com
