If you are looking for an advent calendar that will delight your family for years to come, you have found it.

Each pocket has plenty of space for goodies, so the kids will be happy, and the different colour designs will not only look snazzy, but they are a great way to try new colour work patterns and bust that stash, what is not to love?

The pockets knit up in no time at all, you could easily knit one or two in an evening.

This bunting is knitted using Artesano Definition Sock yarn, but it would work just as well using any 4ply yarn (what a great way to destash).

The pattern includes charts for the colourwork.

Yarn used:
West Yorkshire Spinners, Signature 4ply:
Milk Bottle, Sarsaparilla, Sour Apple and Poppy Seed (one 100g ball of each).

Skills used:
Stocking stitch and basic decreases.
