What to do with your advent calendar? (2022)

It's the end of November again and it's high time I published another list of lovely patterns I've stumbled across in the last year that will be perfect for the advent this year. Of course, having dyed it, I have the benefit of knowing what will look lovely! 

I've gathered a nice mixture of 4ply/fingering/sock and DK weight patterns for knitters or crocheters. 

Bear in mind that some of these will require all your advent colours, while some won't so you'll have leftovers!

Please note: the pictures below are taken from Ravelry or the website of the designer, and a link has been included for every pattern/photo. All photo rights belong to the designer/photographer.

I'm putting this one at the top of the list because this is what I'm making with my advent this year! Join me in creating one glorious masterpiece that will really show off the colours in distinct stripes. It's also really easy and therapeutic, which goes a long way when you're cosying in on a December evening.
