Arne & Carlos Christmas Ball Kits
We are enamored with Norway's most prominent knitters, Arne & Carlos. We've met them personally during classes and recently visited with them via Zoom to hear about their life designing both traditional and non-traditional knitwear in Norway. Scandinavians Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrisson are highly regarded designers, textile artists and authors. They are best known for their original, colorful and visually striking designs, as well as their books.
Their 55 Christmas Balls book is celebrating 10 years this Christmas, and Arne & Carlos will be releasing 24 new charts for these balls on November 22. They'll be chatting on their YouTube channel each day of Advent about each of their new ball designs!
We offer three kits with traditional, modern and cabin-inspired colors. There are 3 skeins in each kit plus an ounce of Montana wool roving for stuffing. You can also choose your own colors here.
