Today the Advent CAL 2018 commences!   The first 3 patterns are released:

From left to right we have:

Stripow Scarf – a long striped scarf with little bows along the length.  This takes approx. 400m of DK yarn, 200m in each colour – or you could use 4 colours if you like!

Lacy lines  –  a shorter gently textured scarf.  This takes from 230m of DK yarn (you can make it longer than the sample).

Warmest Neck – a close fitting thick warm cowl, using from 225m of DK yarn and in 3 sizes.  This is my favourite – I love the texture and thickness of the pattern.

All these patterns require a 4mm hook – they are all written in UK and US crochet terms.

These 3 patterns have been added to the ebook The 12 Gifts of Christmas which is available to buy on Ravelry here.  It normally costs £12 and will eventually have 12 patterns.   Until midnight tomorrow (Sunday 25th November midnight GMT)  the ebook costs just £3 (a massive £9 reduction!), no coupon code needed.  From midnight tomorrow until midnight on Saturday 1st December GMT it will cost £5, again no coupon code needed.  Thereafter it reverts to full price.  Each week for the next 3 weeks extra patterns will be added until all 12 patterns are in the ebook.

The Advent CAL is hosted on my Ravely group, and there are prizes for those who share photos of their finished items from the ebook:

Every entry is in a prize draw of a pattern of your choice from my selection

Those completing 3 or more items in the CAL will be in a prize draw for one of 3 prizes:

  1. an ebook of your choice from my selection
  2. 4 balls of Debbie Bliss Party Angel in midnight blue (15504) and a set of 4 pretty stitch markers
  3. 1 ball of Debbie Bliss Angel in bright turquoise (15047) plus a pack of size 6/0 beads in silver lined turquoise and a pretty stitch marker

The prize draw takes place early on 1st January, so you need to complete your item and post a photo in the Ravelry group before midnight GMT on 31st December.  Please see my Ravelry group for full details of entry requirements.

I can’t wait to see you in the CAL!

Happy crocheting xxx
