Advent calendars are an exciting way to build anticipation for the onset of Christmas, and a yarn Advent kit is a thrilling indulgence for any knitter! The hustle and bustle of December requires a relaxing knit. This wrap was designed with both the kit and knitter in mind. It coaxes the daily yarn surprise into stunning results with minimal effort. This large wrap is intended to use every last bit of your yarn and envelop you with joy for many years to come. Uniquely constructed by beginning in the round, the first few steps are the only challenging part to this design. The rest of the days will be filled with relaxing garter stitch, frequent color changes, and simple slipped stitches that highlight the beauty of the yarn and create a magnificent piece of wearable art. Enjoy every stitch… the best is yet to come!
