Pick Up and Knit, Shaping, Knit, Purl
Start your festive knitting by creating this fabulous advent calendar which will be loved year after year by all the family!
The pattern includes all the details to create the mini stockings as well as for instructions for chain stitch personalisation too. You can choose from ‘12 days of Christmas’ or the full Advent garland, depending on how many stockings you want to knit up. Once you’ve whipped them up you can fill your wee stockings with gifts, treats or messages for you or your family. Create beautiful memories and relive the joy year on year knowing you’ve made something so marvellous and thoughtful – my word, you’re great!
We’ve written a blog post with ideas of how to hang your advent garland, and what to fill it with – we’ve even got some free downloadable messages you can print off and pop in your stockings! You can find it here.
Each stocking is 13cm long x 6.5-9cm wide approx (depending on area measured)
Be careful not to waste too much yarn as you go as there should be just enough for your kit.
