Can you believe it’s almost November?! The holiday season is just around the corner and I cannot believe it’s coming up so quickly! With the holiday season comes Advent swaps, gift knitting….and Knitvent! Yes, Helen Stewart’s annual bundle of easy gift knitting patterns is now for sale!
Let’s talk more about it!
What It Is
Every year, knitwear designer Helen Stewart releases a collection of knitting patterns designed to be knit before Christmas. These patterns release, one week at a time, mostly in the month of November, giving you plenty of time to knit them before Christmas.
Most patterns are easy and quick so that you won’t have any issues knitting them before Christmas – such as mitts, hats, cowls… But other, larger patterns are often included, as well as patterns to knit with those lovely Advent yarn calendars we order each year.
In The Past
One of my favorite Knitvent patterns of all time is the Habitation Throw. I’ve now knit two of these so I know you remember them! This is the perfect pattern to make with your Advent calendar. It’s a lovely, relaxing knit that I know you will enjoy knitting!
Some of my other favorite from past Knitvents include the Dust of Snow wrap, the Land of Sweets cowl, and the Hearten Mitts. All of these are so lovely and I know I’ll knit them one day.
This bundle of patterns is not free, but today is the last day you can order them at the pre-sale pricing. The first pattern releases tomorrow, October 27 – and a new one follows every week after that until the end of November.
I cannot recommend Helen Stewart’s patterns enough. In the past, she’s included several one-skein shawls in Knitvent, which is always a great way to use up those single skeins of yarn we inevitably buy.
I’ve already purchased the Knitvent 2022 collection and cannot wait to see what Helen has designed for us this year!
