I am so not ready to be thinking about Christmas knitting (or Christmas anything, frankly), but they’re all geared up for the holiday season at Red Heart, where they’re actually offering 12 weeks of holiday-themed patterns. The first pattern came out last week and was for a crocheted apron, but I came across a new knitting pattern, too, the Advent Calendar Gift Pockets.
As the name suggests these little numbered knit pockets are designed to hold little gifts and be your advent calendar, so you can count down to Christmas in yarny style. They’re really cute and would be a relatively quick project, and a great stash buster considering there are 25 of them (and I think they’d be cute not all in reds and greens, too).
