You love knitting and don't know Julekuler yet? Then it's about time!
Arne & Carlos, two Scandinavian cult designers, originated the lovely knitted balls called Julekuler which are a great decoration for upcoming Christmas.

Besides, what could be a better gift than handcrafted Christmas balls with your personal design on them?
My girlfriend and me, we wanted to make it easy for everyone to design their own festive ornaments, so we created the Julekuler generator! The Julekuler generator is a free website where you can easily create personal patterns for Julekuler based on Arne & Carlos' idea. Check it out on http://julekuler.zitroneneis.org/

Here you can see a few Julekuler I made, some of them are my own design - hope you enjoy them. Have fun!

Wow. Those are neat. They look a bit complicated for my limited knitting skills. But would be a fun challenge to try. And could probably also be used for a kitty toy? Just in case they came out wonky for the first go.  Grin

Hi,

Thank you very much for the nice messages!
Great idea! I think this would make a super kitty toy  Cheesy
Just be careful to stuff it with something that's not toxic to cats, such as remnants from bedsheets or peas. Actually if you knit firmly I think peas would make a pretty good stuffing since they make a sound rolling over the floor Wink
You could also use catnip which you can buy in pet shops - cats love that.

Greetings,
Derwassi

This is so perfect!  I've got plans to make a knitted ball every year for our Christmas tree, but wanted to do my own design so I could throw the year somewhere into the pattern.  Thank you for this!

Hi ama,

This is such a great idea! I'm glad that the generator is useful to you. You definitely have to show the results of your yearly Christmas balls, I'm would be thrilled to see them.

Okay, here it is!  It has a few flaws (I did my decreases backwards) and it's a little lumpy in places, but it was a learning process.  I'll know how to make the next one better.  Regardless, I'm very happy with how it turned out.  Thank you so much for the liink to your instructions and the Julekuler generator!  Grin
