Product description


Dec 11 I really like this book. The designs are all based on the same basic ball with varied, mainly traditional designs and are quite quick and easy to knit. You should be familiar with knitting in the round and in 2 colour knitting to be comfortable with these patterns as there are no instructions on how to knit, just a few pages on special techniques used in the book. I knitted in double knittting pure wool on 3mm needles and have produced some nice results. The balls are quite big when finished, over 2 inches in diameter so if you want to hang a lot on your Christmas tree you would need quite a big tree. I liked the little snippets of interesting facts and background to the designs and the photos were lovely, each ball is photographed individually. I will definitely be making more for next Christmas.-"Kate", Amazon * Customer * Autumn 2013 Who doesn't love Christmas decorations?
