The Advent KALendar is a shawl knitalong will be published in 24 daily clues, from Dec 1-24, 2017. 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 Svarog (the father of Dažbog, who inspired the 2016 Advent KALendar).

Svarog is the slavic god of the sun, fire guard and protector of blacksmiths. He is the creator of the sky and the master of all other gods.

According to some stories, Svarog sleeps and in his dream he created this world. He cannot act directly on the physical and material environment that he dreams, but he can affect the willingness of other gods, and his influence is enormous. His two sons are Dažbog (the sun-god and the god of fire), and Svarožić (the god of fireplace).
Svarog’s awakening will mark the end of the world.
