Advent calendar 2022 - a slipover that can be knitted by everyone 

Önling's Knitter's Advent calendar is pure indulgence for you and your knitting needles throughout December. Advent Calendar #1 is a knitted slipover or vest top. The pattern is written for beginners and novice knitters. That means no abbreviations and good video instructions. 

The slipover is designed by Katrine Hannibal, who is one of Önling's founders and our Creative Director. It is designed to be worn over a dress, t-shirt or shirt and Katrine has chosen Önling No 15 yarn in two colours to give the slipover a cool, mouliné colour effect. 

Together with the knitting project you'll receive a handpicked gift each Sunday, produced especially for knitters, who likes pampering and enjoys cosy knitting.

When you receive the Advent box it contains 4 numbered gifts - one for each Sunday in December. The pattern is digital and will land in your inbox every Friday. 

The price for Advent Calendar #1 is:

Str. XS $99  You receive yarn, pattern and gifts with a total value of $147
Str. S-XL $118 You receive yarn, pattern and gifts with a total value of $166 
Str. 2XL $137  You receive yarn, pattern and gifts with a total value of $185
Str. 3XL $156  You receive yarn, pattern and gifts with a total value of $204

Please note that we will start shipping preordered advent calendars from mid October, but that we will capture your money within a week after the time of ordering.

About the knitting project
We can't tell you that much without spilling all the beans and spoiling the December fun. But to get the excitement going we can reveal the following about Advent project # 1:

  • The slipover can be knitted by all knitters - even new ones- because it's an EASY PEASY pattern without abbreviations and there'll be video instructions.
  • The slipover has a normal sizing, which means 5-8 cm positive ease to us.
  • The slipover features nice little details - it's not just knitting in the round over and over again.
  • You'll be knitting with 2 strands of Önling No 15 on needle size US 10 / 6 mm. Knitting needles are not included in gifts.
  • The yarn is Önling No 15. A soft and slightly shinny merino that knits up very evenly. 
  • You choose the colour combination, by combining 2 strands of 28 different yarn colours. 

About the gifts
Yet again, Katrine Hannibal has made a great effort to design and choose a handful of really nice gifts for the Advent calendar. They are handpicked for knitters and we believe they will bring joy and spread coziness throughout december. 

Some gifts are specially produced for the Advent calendar and will not be released until 2023.

ABOUT PATTERNS FROM ÖNLING

In 95% of all kits from Önling, you get a digital pattern and yarn when you buy a kit. Read more about how to get hold of your digital knitting pattern here.

In very few cases, however, we provide a printed pattern rather than a digital one:

- When you buy a kit for ALL designs from PetiteKnit's, you will receive a printed, pattern together with your yarn, as we are unfortunately not allowed to sell Petite Knits' patterns digitally.

- When you buy a kit for a design from selected books (e.g. Helga Isager), you sometimes have to buy the book separately, in cases where the patterns are not released to be sold separately. It will always be clearly described in the product title, with for example "xx kit, excluding pattern", when the pattern is not included.

- All patterns from Isager are delivered as a printed pattern, as we do not have access to sell these digitally. You will receive your pattern along with your yarn shipment.

Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect.

Find our instructions for how to wash your knitwear here.
