Pattern Ideas for Yarn Advents

what to make with yarn advent calendars

So it's advent eve! And I thought I'd put together a little round up of some of the patterns I know that some folk have already bookmarked for yarn advent making.

Yarn advents are amazing (I make one so obviously I'm slightly biased) but working out what to make with 24 mini skeins can be a conumdrum.

So I asked over on instagram what everyone was planning to make with theirs this month and here are a few of the suggestions, click the photos to see the pattern links.

Do you have a yarn advent this year - if so what are you planning on making?

I've decided to weave with mine (I literally just learnt, so this may be a disaster) if my calculations are correct I'll some yarn left over to do some crochet paper chains too!

I have another couple of blog posts with some ideas of what to make with mini skeins you can find below...
