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. www.arne-carlos.com
For knitters and crocheters this book is absolute joy.
If only just for the abundance of colour it is a spectacular collection of projects, that includes blankets, dolls, birds and cushions. Even an embroidered table mat, which is stunning is a project that I adored. It is so cute.
Arne and Carlos are famous names in the Knitting and Crochet community and their unique and signature designs, are beautifully presented with easy to follow instructions and wonderful pictures.
Set in sections, In the Playroom, Out in Our Garden and others, This gorgeous volume is filled to the brim with amazing projects to knit and crochet. You get a lot, and I mean a lot for you money.
The only problem will be choosing which to start first. It is brilliant, and would make a wonderful gift to someone who loves the art of wool crafting.
Arne and Carlos are two very inspirational people, They clearly love what they do and after 15 years of sharing and caring we too are able to indulge in their wonderful and stunning creations.
Absolutely perfect and worth more stars than I am able to give.-- Tracy Shephard * Postcard Reviews *
