Hello Yarnies <3
Christmas is here! Well...almost!!
I absolutely love Christmas; the mulled wine, the cold prawns, the backyard cricket, and the blistering summer heat! There is nothing not to love about a beautiful Aussie Christmas! Buuuuuuut, if you are in denial about the impending end of year, what's a better way to transition into our festive season than a Christmas CAL?
Last year, Yarnish held its first-ever Christmas Advent Calendar mystery crochet-along. It was a huuuuge success! Designed by the amazing Emma Wilkinson, each day for 24 days, one part of a secret pattern was released up on to the blog. The pattern was for a beautiful table runner. You can find the link to this MCAL here.
This year we're are going bigger and bolder! We have harnessed the collective imagination of the Yarnish Design Team to bring you 12 amazing designs, exclusively for our 2019 'Days of Christmas Crochet-Along'.
You can expect exclusive designs from:
- Emma Wilkinson (Emma Wilkinson Designs);
- Katt Wade (Bluebuggs Handmade);
- Melody Tallon (Artefacts Crochet);
- Reneé Ettia (ShinyGurumi);
- Tegan Howes (Howes the Crochet);
- Natasha Ireland (Buttonnose Crochet);
- Mari Koeck (Gray Day Crochet);
- and Mrs Yarnish herself, Nicole Vesterholm.
Every day for the first 12 days of December, we will be releasing one gleeful pattern for you to make. But just like Christmas morning, there will be NO peeking ;) I can tell you there are lots of different things to make. But that's it! Sorry, my lips are sealed!
Just like last year, we are using Scheepjes Catona Yarn. We have made up three beautiful kits in three beautiful colourways:
Rustic - Inspired by Australiana landscape and flora: rich reds, green-greens and warm whites;
Frosted - cool blues, crisp whites and snowy greys;
And Merry - bright reds, cheerful greens and vibrant whites.
Each kit is $60, and contains the downloadable PDF pattern, 8 x 50g balls of Scheepjes Catona Yarn plus 1x10g ball in a secret colour as well as some bits and bobs for finishings. You can pre-order here. There are only be a limited number of kits so pre-order now to avoid disappointment!
The patterns will also be sold separately for $15 if you decide to choose your own colourway and yarn.
Which one is your favorite? I thought I would be drawn to Merry, but Rustic is calling me!
