Christmas Advent Calendar Crochet Along
Introducing a Crochet Along to welcome Christmas with counting down the days with a Crochet Advent Calendar.
During a meeting back in July with Yarnspirations, the designers were working on miniature holiday ornaments for this calendar. There are many ways while I really loved this project. The miniatures have opportunities for the following:
- Gift & Tag Toppers for Presents
- Ornaments for Trees & Bunting
- Miniatures for this Calendar
This is a Crochet Along, you can sign up for Notifications for each of the components of this Crochet Along.
The advent calendar is approximately 25″ wide by 37″ long. It’s hung as a banner with a dowel at the top to hang. There are 24 days in this calendar leading up to Christmas. Each item stays in the pocket until the day of the month happens and you decorate your tree as the days get closer to Christmas. By the time Christmas comes, the entire tree will be decorated.
There are 12 Christmas Ornaments. You will do 2 of each.

The entire pattern is available in advance. The Crochet Along will have the matching tutorials released in order that it appears in the pattern.
