Advent Cowl Wolop

Advent Cowl Wolop

In 2021,  I bought two Advent calendars, which kept me a very busy knitter in 2022.  I chose to make a Habitation Throw with one calendar, and then with the other, I chose to make the Advent Cowl Wolop.  And this was such a fun project!

Let me tell you more!

The Yarn

For this pattern, I used an Advent calendar from Blush Yarns.  (This was a fingering weight calendar.)  The colors were just too beautiful and they worked perfectly in a rainbow fade.  I especially loved the bright pastel hue of most of the colors!  Perfect!  

(I did not use all the minis from this calendar as I’d used a few for other projects.)

The Pattern 

I found out about this pattern by watching The Crazy Sock Lady’s podcast.  She knit this and made some modifications.  And I used her modifications and made some of my own.

My modifications included knitting 25 rows with one color.  I then added the new color and did this pattern for a row: k2tog YO.  This was The Crazy Sock Lady’s modification and it’s perfect.  

This was the first time I used a provisional cast on and while that was fine, I absolutely hated the bind off.  And that’s a shame, because I would totally knit this again if not for that.  

This project was perfect for my early morning knitting and I’m so glad I made it.  The yarn and the pattern – just perfection!  I can’t recommend it enough for using those Advent calendars.
