This years free* Advent Calendar will be an item of clothing designed to fit either a 1:12th scale or a 1:6th scale male doll, suitable for winter/Christmas wear. There will be slightly more knitting in 1:6th scale on a few days, in order to add the extra rows required to make it fit the larger scale doll. The actual design will be revealed on 1st December 2018 and the full list of materials, abbreviations used, etc. will be published towards the end of November 2018.
We’ve worked our design in red and white as this is Christmassy. The Advent Calendar will work in any other colours, although we suggest using two strongly contrasting colours to show the design features more clearly.
Although colour work may look very complicated, it is well within the scope of anyone who can knit. We have kept the knitting to a few rows each day, so that the garment will grow slowly and steadily and allow people to gain confidence. We will also publish tutorials on some days in order to help less experienced knitters.

* The Advent Calendar is only free until 6th January 2019, after which it will be removed from these pages and be available to purchase as two separate patterns.
