This book review is a bit later than I had planned. I took the pictures in December then put them to one side as I had asked Arne & Carlos for an interview. I waited to see then found out from them about a family illness. Then came Christmas and all the hustle and bustle. Anyway, here it is finally.
'Knit-and-Crochet Garden' by Arne & Carlos is, as always, an amazing cute wonderful book. It's full of bright cheerful colours and comforting knitting and crochet patterns.
There are unusual twists on household items like coasters and cushions inspired by flowers and all things related to the garden. I love the feel and aura of Arne & Carlos books. They are so homely. You feel as if you could really snuggle up with the cushions and throws.
There are also patterns in here for toys - a mouse and a hippy to be exact! They come with clothes and you'll need to be able to knit in the round with DPNs or be able to adapt the pattern to suit your needs. There isn't much in the way of instructions for complete beginners, just advice on yarn and needles, but if you are a confident beginner you should find you are OK.
There is a pattern for a blanket for the toys and there are lovely photos of the dolls house Arne & Carlos own in their garden.
I have reviewed two other Arne & Carlos books here: Easter Knits, and Knitted Dolls with a Designer Wardrobe
You can find 'Knit and Crochet Garden' by Arne & Carlos on the Search Press website.
