Every year I try to do a different thing for Advent on my blog, aiming to post every day until Christmas. Last year it was a 'village' of little houses, and I've designed paper chains and globes in the past. This year is a bit different ... you can save the image from each post and use it to knit, hook, stitch or weave ... This is post one, a simple stripe pattern using Christmas colours. The idea is to do a bit each day and produce a Christmas 'thing', whether it is a scarf, cushion, table runner or blanket! I'm using a repeat of 8, but some patterns may be a 16 stitches wide, and obviously you can do as many repeats as you like.
I have to admit that I'm yet to cast on ... I'm planning a skinny scarf - it's been a busy weekend and I've spent most of my time writing a report for work! Now I'm going to sit down and sort the Christmassy colour in my stash.
