Fair Isle Advent MKALendar


With the Fair Isle Advent MKALendar you'll create either a stocking cap or a tubular cowl in 25 days, worked entirely in the round in stranded colorwork. This pattern is ideal for all sorts of fingering-weight leftovers, scraps, half-a skeins, unicorn tails, or advent calendar minis.

Each day's clue is presented as a stranded colorwork chart. All charts can be worked with just two colors but you can use as many as you wish! Your color choices determine whether your advent will be filled with classic or modern interpretations of traditional Fair Isle motifs. Regardless of how many colors you pick, all rounds are knit with just two colors and short floats.

The pattern comes in four sizes for the stocking cap (kids, teens, ladies, and gents) and one for the cowl. The mystery KAL is released in 25 daily clues: 24 days of colorwork charts for the Advent with finishing instructions on Christmas Day.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Only charted instructions are given for the daily colorwork patterns.
