2019 ADVENT | 24-stripe skein


This product is sold out

In 2018 I came up with the idea of a 24-stripe advent skein to offer an alternative to the very popular mini-skein advent calendars. I had not anticipated how well received this would be. I had thought wouldn't it be fun to knit this with a few people leading up to Christmas, there was no way I could have predicted over 400 knitters would want to join in. Thank you so much to everyone who participated.

The 2019 Cozy Knitter 24-stripe advent skein will be in my Bliss base which is 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon and be approx 140g.The skein will be split into two even skeins so you can cast on both socks and have them matching. Each half will have 3 full repeats of the 24 stripes so you can knit your socks in your preferred size. To have a finished pair of socks by Christmas Day you may need to knit more than one stripe daily, this depends on your personal gauge and the size you will be knitting.

This will be a brand new colourway and only available for a limited time. I may or may not choose to repeat this colourway at a later time.

Shipping: All 24-stripe advent skeins will be shipped out from Ontario, Canada in mid October/early November. You will receive a shipping notification when your postage is printed. I am hoping this should allow enough time for everyone to receive their package well before December 1st but please understand this is a busy time of year and will be subject to postal delays based on the demands of the various carriers.
