    27: More Project Ideas For your Advent Calendar Yarn

    27: More Project Ideas For your Advent Calendar Yarn

    Today I’m going to share more patterns you can knit or crochet with your advent calendar yarn!
    For the show notes, go to https://fairytaleyarnco.com/podcast27
    Now, most of these patterns are for the advent calendars that have 20-gram minis of fingering weight yarn. Some are for using a full hank and one or more minis. I’m also focusing on patterns that do NOT use the entire set. I will have a few that will, but most don’t so if you don’t like huge projects, I have lots of ideas for you! I do have another episode where I talk about projects that use an entire advent calendar and you can find that at Fairy tale yarn co. com/podcast14 And you can find links to everything I talk about and all these patterns in the show notes at FairyTaleYarnCo.com/podcast27. I have 35 patterns for you today! To make it easier to see all the patterns on 1 page, I’ve created a bundle in my Ravelry favorites. I’ll have that linked on the show notes also.
