Welcome to my Advent Scarf for this year, affectionately known as Addy Vent. The theme is Japanese Stitches. The scarf will be approximately 8 inches wide and 72 inches long, plenty of length to be good and cozy. I am using West Yorkshire Spinners Illustrious 245 yards/225m/100grams, which is a blend of Falkland wool and alpaca. It is classed as a DK weight yarn. As always you can use, whatever yarn you choose, just be mindful of differences in length and width with different yarns. A tonal or solid yarn is going to show off the stitch patterns the best. I’m knitting this on a 4mm/6US. The pattern is charted and has written out rows. You will need 3 balls of Illustrious or about 735 yards.

The pattern page has the usual information and the pdf will have the cast on directions for the ribbing, which is 13 rows of knitting.

The pattern is free for the duration of advent (Nov 24- Dec 24) and the pattern will start on November 24th. I upload late in the evening for the following days knitting, so I will be uploading the cast on instructions and the first day’s knitting late on the 23rd. I will be taking the pattern down briefly on the
26th. It will have pictures added, tidied up and re- added to ravelry as a paid pattern. It is my understanding that when a pattern is offered for free on ravelry, that you do not receive notifications in your messages for the new uploads. It is up to you to remember to come on to rav, go to your library and upload the new days knitting. It will be a cumulative file, so if you don’t start on time, all the days knitting will be there on the day you choose to start.

Enjoy!
