Christmas Advent Calendar

Introducing a Crochet Along to welcome Christmas with counting down the days with a Crochet Advent Calendar. There are 12 different ornaments, essentially you crochet 2 of each so you have 1 for each of the 24 days.

Each one of the pockets has an ornament inside. The pockets have the dates that are embroidered on.

As the date approaches, you take out the ornament from the pocket and slide it onto the button on the tree. By Christmas, you will have a fully decorated crochet tree to enjoy.

This was designed by Emily, one of the designers of Yarnspirations. I remember sitting with her when she was working through this concept. In the meeting, we talked about miniatures as we have Miniature Pumpkins for Halloween. Emily was so excited about the concept. Designer, Nicole, made a funny joke about calling the idea, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!” We laughed like school girls. Emily eventually finished and the Crochet Advent Calendar was born.

This was a stitch-along project for December 2016. So each one of the videos was presented as a separate unit. The following are all of the tutorials that match this project:

    I love your tutorials. As a retired educator, I can honestly say that you are an excellent teacher. You present your work at the right pace. You describe what you are doing and why. Your demonstrations are easy to see and helpful to follow.
    I made this Advent calendar for my niece and her little ones last year and they were so excited to put it up this year.
    Thank you, Mikey, I couldn’t have done it without you!

      Thank you for your kind words. Judging by the inbox of comments, it’s a tough gig as most who are unhappy are quick to voice it and throw their bad day onto my shoulders. I nearly quit last year as I hit a breaking point.

      I hope you enjoy your new project… Have a great season ahead.

    Thanks for being such a great teacher and inspiration! I started the Advent Calendar Crochet Along but realised that most of the ornaments do not relate to Christmas in Australia so I have created my own version. I hope you have a chuckle over some of them. Can you please tell me where the best place to post them would be?

    Only 4-10 are working on the pattern links. I’m looking for the written patterns please!

  4. Debbie

    Hi there, the links to the ornaments are not working πŸ™‚

  5. Rebecca

    Is there a written pattern for this

    • Joan Wood

      Hi yes the pattern is towards the top. Highlighted in blue. If you click that it will take you to the pattern.

    I loved this project. Yes, loved it (past tense) because I set myself the challenge of using bits from my stash including raiding the button box. And, well, it took me a week and the Gilmore Girls marathon but I’m finished. I suppose I should’ve waited for the video on the stocking but I think after three hours and one trashed sample full of errors I got it!

  7. Jackie

    Is there a location such as a Facebook page where we can share, discuss and show our progress of this CAL?

  8. Rhonda

    I actually did my tree all in one piece. Its easier that way i think. Rather than tieng off, I just chained 7 off each edge turned, you make the next level up, and came back.

  9. Joan stevens

    When will the next video be uploaded?

  10. Sue Mcgee

    Would you put up a schedule for the crochet along please?

    • I have put in a request with Yarnspirations already and we have to match their email schedule. They haven’t shared it yet as 2 extra tutorials were thrown in and they have to adjust. I’m waiting for them to give me the final dates. I’m sorry.

  11. JoAnn Trenary

    The written pattern does not specify to sc in back “bump” of chain. Is this the only modification of the pattern? Thanks!

    • Pam Myers

      This is how Mikey likes to do it. It makes the first row more even. ☺️

  12. Lucy

    Is there a kit for all the supplies for this project? I look but did not see it.

    • It’s in the written pattern. All the supplies are listed. Click GET THE PATTERN button at the top of the article. πŸ˜€

  14. Amanda
