Overview


Scandinavian knitting sensations Arne and Carlos (authors of the international bestseller 55 Christmas Balls to Knit) find great inspiration in quirkiness and whimsy, and their trademark style and sense of humor is in large part fresh and unique because of their ability to embrace their inner child.

Arne and Carlos now aspire to bring a little of the fun to you with a fantastic collection of knitted dolls, as well as instruction for creating a charming knitted wardrobe for them. Based on the dolls Arne and Carlos used during their career in the fashion design industry (they would design clothing in miniature before transforming it into “human” sizes), you’ll find easy-to-knit instructions for five doll bodies and tips for giving them features. Then, you get to dress them up! From underwear to overcoats, you'll find miniature knits to suit all seasons. With themes supplied to organize the patterns and ignite your imagination—“To the Mountains,” “Coffee Break,” “Ship Ahoy!”—you’re destined to find yourself transported into another (albeit smaller) world.

Whether knitting dolls for your own enjoyment, or to collect and give to a child or grandchild, the playful universe created by Arne and Carlos is one you’ll enjoy exploring. Designs are appropriate for knitters of every ability level, although advanced knitters can also resize the patterns to knit favorite garments for people—just like Arne and Carlos did in their “designer days.”
