The Catvent Cowl is the purrfect advent knit. It’s a varied knit: lots of snippets of catty colourwork as well as some cat-inspired texture, and pretty lateral braids. You’ll knit plenty of little catfaces, but there are also sections that feature boopable-noses, silky pointy ears and little raspy tongues.
There are 25 mini-skeins in each calendar, and they'll be individually wrapped and labelled. The packaging will all be recyclable, and as minimal as I can make it while still keeping the yarn a secret and the unwrapping fun.
There will be little crafty extras scattered throughout the calendar, including an extra-special extra for Christmas day, plus the Catvent Cowl pattern.
4-ply wool - this is a springy, bouncy, sturdy wool with a bit of crunch and character. There's 80m in each 20g skein.
Merino 4-ply - this is a lovely soft and bouncy high-twist fine merino, with 80m in each 20g skein.
Both bases are completely plastic-free - no nylon and no superwash treatment.
Deep sea - All the colours of the sea - blues and greens and silver sands, deep dark oceans and silver moonlight on the waves....
Landlocked - Earthy reds, the bright acid green of new shoots, soft heathery mountains on the horizon....
Both of these will alternate lighter and darker shades, making them perfect for the Catvent Cowl's catty colourwork.
The yarn shown isn't the yarn that will be in the calendar - that would ruin the surprise. It's a peek at previous years.
You can add in just the pin & project bag combo or go for the whole adventstravaganza, and get the stitchmarker calendar as well. This year's theme is I Saw Three Cats A-Sailing - so we'll be diving deep into the sea, for glassy blues and greens, all sorts of undersea creatures and - of course - a few cats along the way.
All advents will be sent using a tracked service. Calendars will be dispatched in October, in plenty of time to reach you before December the 1st.
