55 Christmas Balls to Knit is a popular book by Arne and Carlos, knitwear designers from Norway and Sweden respectively. Drawing on their shared Scandinavian culture, Arne and Carlos have designed 55 seasonal motifs to use with a standard knitted ball pattern. The charted motifs include evergreens, reindeer, hearts, and snowflakes. The patterns are knit in the round on five size 1-3 needles using sport or fingering weight yarn. Wool or wool-blend yarns are best — Dale Heilo or Baby Ull work very well.
Be sure to check out the tree in the store — dozens of balls knitted by customers, staff, and our beloved Dave Helgesen hang on its branches.
