Everything you need is included in the kit - Choose from a ‘12 days of Christmas’ or the full Advent garland. The kit comes with a ball of red yarn and instructions on how to chain stitch so you can number or decorate your stockings.

I now have a Facebook group for those of you who have bought a kit or pattern from me, so please do come show me your knits and chat with the kind and friendly community of knitters already in there. They’re always happy to talk knitting and offer any advice if you have questions.
Although we check and double check all patterns as thoroughly as possible, occasionally a mistake/misprint slips through the net, normally it’s obvious so shouldn’t hinder your project but just in case it’s best to mention it. Please feel free to let me know if you spot anything (unless it’s already listed below) We regularly reprint patterns to keep up with any mistakes but below are any corrections we’ve ever made on this pattern:
- Row 17: should read ‘P12, Pick up and purl 4 stitches, Purl to end of Row’
