Scandinavian knitting sensations Arne and Carlos (authors of the international bestseller 55 Christmas Balls to Knit) aspire to bring a little fun to your inner child with a fantastic collection of knitted dolls, as well as instruction for creating a charming knitted wardrobe for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful ideas to expand your knitting! I have made five birds since I got this book! The instructions are clear, but be aware that there are three errata in the first printing (which I got). You can find and print the corrections pages on the publisher Trafalgar Books website. Aside from that errata issue, which most craft books have, this is an excellent book to get your creative juices flowing and use up leftover yarns to make unique birds to brighten up your decor. Start with the solid coloured birds to get used to the pattern before you try the ones with multiple yarns. I also got some of their Regia self-patterning sock yarn to make birds, and they are exquisite!
