The Advent Shawl – in twenty-four parts over twenty-four days

This Advent Shawl is a triangular shawl full of all the things I love about knitting: colours, colourwork, lovely yarn, surprises, lace work, cables, textures and edgings that go on for hundreds of stitches. It provides for 24 days of knitting that should lead to a shawl right on Christmas Day.

There’s also a code to download my Great Ocean Road shawl pattern included.

You can use this pattern with a Zanetto Yarn Advent Kit or your own yarn:

For the first ten days, you will need 5g of yarn a day. From Day 11 onwards, I recommend 7g of yarn for each of six days and then 7g to 10g for each day up to and including Day 23. The border will need about 25g.

Version 5 is the latest version and contains corrections for the first 11 days.

On Day 1, there should be a WS row after the row repeats 4-12. This then changes the row counts.

Row 13: Rep Row 2.
Row 14: K3, sm, yo, k7, skpo, yo, k2tog, yo, k to marker, yo, sm, k1, sm, yo, k7, skpo, yo, k2tog, yo, k to marker, yo, sm, k3. (37 sts)
Row 15: K3, sm, p to last marker (slipping markers as you go), sm, k3.
Rows 16-25: Rep Rows 14-15 five times. (61 sts)

Day 12 says RS on the first row but the day starts on the WS row.
