The Advent KALendar is a shawl knitalong that was originally published in 24 daily clues, from Dec 1-24, 2015. Each day you will get a piece of the pattern to enjoy, and by Christmas you will have a completed shawl.

The shawl design is inspired by the Zorya.

The Zorya are ancient Slavic sky and light goddesses. They are sisters; Utrennyaya, the morning star, and Vechernyaya, the evening star. Their purpose is to guard the doomsday hound Simargl who tries to eat Ursa Minor, the little bear. If the chain should ever break and the dog should ever get loose, the universe will end. The Zorya serve the sun god Dažbog. Zorya Utrennyaya opens the gates to his palace every morning for the sun-chariot’s departure. At dusk, Zorya Vechernyaya closes the palace gates once more after his return.
