Christmas In July

Charlotte Froud
27 July 2022


Now, we know this may be too shocking for some of you. But, for the more organised among us, you may be starting to think about Christmas. If that’s the case then we thought it might be useful to remind you of what you could be starting to prep in time for December 25th!

Count down to Christmas with the Knitted Advent Calendar. This one takes a bit of time so could be the perfect project to get started on now. The pattern itself is suitable for intermediate/advanced knitters but if you’re only a beginner, this is still possible! It just takes a bit of time getting used to the shaping around the toe. Once you’ve made it, hang over your mantelpiece, around the Christmas tree or gift it to someone. Fill with sweet treats, small pressies or little messages! We love that this is a much more sustainable and thoughtful way of celebrating advent. 


Christmas sacks are up next! Now, we have two designs for these. The Jumbo Christmas Sack and also the Super Chunky Christmas Sack. The jumbo version comes with instructions on how to personalise with your chosen initial and the chunky design has this as an optional extra. Both designs are suitable for beginners so they can be a great way to wow your friends this Christmas with your crafting abilities! It will be the Christmas sack that literally keeps on giving year after year.

Always a Christmas classic for us, the Chunky Knit Crown Kit. Planning Christmas at yours this year? Surprise everyone by replacing the standard paper crowns with a knitted version. Choose from a variety of colours and make yourself a set of glorious, super comfy headwear for your guests. This knit kit is suitable for all levels of knitter and takes around an hour to complete so if you have lots of friends and family, go go go! We also have a super sweet tree topper version too.


Be armed with suitable Christmas party attire this December with either the ‘Just Be-Claus’ Santa Hat or the ‘Express Yours-elf’ Elf Hat. Both hats are lots of fun to wear. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters as they are knitted on circular needles. We have sizes for babies (or pets), teenagers and adults so you can make hats for the whole family or work team if you fancy a challenge!


Finally, if you’re going down the crafty Christmas present route this year we obviously have loads of jumper designs for you to choose from. We have picked the Harry’s Favourite Jumper as our particular Christmas favourite. Personalise with the correct initial to match your family members or friends. Just call yourself Mrs Weasley (Harry Potter fans, you’ll know what we’re talking about). Again, sizes to suit all of the family and the length is determined by you.


Keep your eyes peeled for more festive knits coming soon! Happy Christmas knitting pals.

Much Love x
