Welcome to our fourth annual Twelve Weeks of Christmas yarn-along series!
This Christmas season, we’re publishing 12 original patterns for knitters and 12 original patterns for crocheters, and hosting 12 yarn-alongs for both crafts with free instructionevery Sunday from October 2nd through December 18th. If you complete all 12 projects in your favorite craft, then you’ll have 12 hand-made gifts to give to your friends and family by Christmas time!
For the first time this year, we’ve designed 12 Weeks of Christmas patterns for knitters and crocheters!
We design our 12 Weeks of Christmas projects with three criteria in mind:
It must be possible to finish within one week with moderate diligence.
Materials must cost $25 or less.
It will make a good gift for someone you know.
Patterns are free with the purchase of the recommended yarn for the duration of the season. Knit and crochet instruction is free with attendance at any of our Sunday knit-alongs.
For those who live away, if you purchase the recommended yarn from our online store at shopovertherainbowyarn.com and include a comment with the 12 Weeks pattern you’d like us to include when you place your order, we’d be glad to send it along with your yarn. We’d love to see photos and comments on our Ravelry pattern pages! If you’re on Facebook, you can also post your comments+photos to our Facebook page.
Here’s the complete 12 Weeks of Christmas schedule. Show up at 10:00am or 2:00pm (whichever you like!) on the following dates to join us for a knit-and-crochet-along with free instruction. No need to register in advance. All levels of experience are always welcome!
