2019 ADVENT | 24-stripe skein **SECONDS**
This product is sold out
These skeins are seconds. The Advent skein is made up of two half skeins each with 2 repeats of 24 stripes. These skeins are missing the last stripe in each half skein, so each half will have 47 stripes instead of 48. There are no other flaws with these skeins.
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 on my Bliss base which is 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon and be approx 110-115g.The skein will be split into two even half-skeins each with 2 full repeats of 24 stripes, each stripe is approx 5-6 rows depending on your gauge. 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. You can choose to include a mini skein with the advent skein. There will be the option to purchase an undyed mini, a black mini or a surprise complimentary colour. NOTE: the stripes for 2019 are slightly wider than the 2018 skein.
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 starting in mid October-mid 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.
