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:

Crochet Advent Calendar

Crochet Advent Calendar

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    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!

    1. Mikey says:

      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?

  3. Natalie says:

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

  4. Debbie says:

    Hi there, the links to the ornaments are not working 🙂

    1. Checking GET PATTERN link now.

    2. Link to pattern is working where all the ornaments are. The videos for the ornaments release starting tomorrow.

      1. Debbie says:

        Oh I see, will all of them be released at once? Need to get stitching lol

  5. Rebecca says:

    Is there a written pattern for this

    1. Joan Wood says:

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

  6. Bonnie Horak says:

    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 says:

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

    1. Join us at our Stitch Social group! You can share and chat about the CAL and any other crochet projects you are working on. 🙂

    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 says:

    When will the next video be uploaded?

  10. Sue Mcgee says:

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

    1. 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 says:

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

    1. Pam Myers says:

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

  12. Lucy says:

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

    1. It’s in the written pattern. All the supplies are listed. Click GET THE PATTERN button at the top of the article. 😀

  13. Mary wanamaker says:

    I have never done a chrochet along… I have all the supplies what is the next step? Thanks you

    1. Starts Nov 10th. Check our YouTube or stay tuned to Facebook. 😀
