The 2019 Craftvent Calendar Kit includes:
- 16 balls of yarn (over 900 yards!)
- 8 notions and tasty treats (ranging from tea to tapestry needles!)
Each notion and ball of yarn in the Knit Craftvent Calendar sits inside one of 24 magnetic tins that rest neatly on a metal hanging board, which you can use and reuse after your project is complete! Use it for organizing and storage in your craft room, kitchen, or beyond! The Crochet Craftvent Calendar is a four-faced tower with six smaller boxes containing your goodies on each side, making for an extra-satisfying holiday countdown!
Gunderson says, "I had such a blast designing this year's project, and getting to use so many new-to-me yarns in the process! The concept of Craftvent is so fun - getting to open a gift every day, do a little stitching, learn new things. It's the ultimate knitters and crocheters indulgence!"
