With a fresh and unique quirkiness that channels the inner child, this handbook aspires to bring a little bit of fun to knitting by creating a fantastic collection of knitted dolls and charming, miniature wardrobes. Directions for easy-to-knit dolls and tips for giving them distinct features are included, and with themes such as To the Mountains, Coffee Break, and Ship Ahoy! help organise clothing patterns and ignite the imagination. From underwear to overcoats, the various garment patterns are appropriate for every ability level and offer a playful universe that any knitter will enjoy exploring.
Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrison, Norwegian and Swedish respectively, established their design company ARNE & CARLOS in 2002. Drawing on traditional Scandinavian influences and the natural environment, they create original and striking knitwear, and work with such prestigious fashion designers as Comme des Garcons. Arne and Carlos' creative base is their eclectic farm in Norway, where they absorb the rich tradition of Scandinavian arts and crafts while exploring their own knitwear inspirations.
