12 Knit Advent Calendar Patterns for Christmas

12 Knit Advent Calendar Patterns

In every store, you will see advent calendars with candy inside for the kids. My mom made one for me and my sister when we were children out of felt. Each pocket had an ornament that she hand sewn with sequins to attach to the Christmas tree above. Every day we would take turns attaching an ornament until the 24th of Christmas when we would attach the star to the top of the tree. It’s one of my most treasured memories of my mother and my childhood Christmas’. So here are a variety of knit advent calendar patterns you can choose from to add to your family traditions. Add some candy but trust me when I say it’s not about the candy but the memories you’ll make with your family.
