Knitvent is an annual Curious Handmade holiday gift knitting collection.

Six mystery knitting patterns. Five festive weeks. An irresistible feast of secrets and surprises to indulge your most knitworthy loved ones and feed your own creative heart. 

The Knitvent 2023 collection celebrates the sweetness of the season. Nostalgic candies and cookies and biscuits and cakes, piled high for parties or stashed away as surprises. Glasses that sparkle and fizz. Mugs filled to the brim with warmth and good cheer. Fancy confections that only appear in the shops for a few weeks of the year. Precious recipes handed down through the generations. Indulgence, food and feasting have always been at the heart of the holidays, and this year’s designs are inspired by some of my own favourite seasonal treats. 


Inspired by childhood memories of Advent calendars, hidden parcels, and all the joyful anticipation and surprises of the season, Knitvent is a cross between a holiday countdown calendar and a mystery knit along. Each week, you’ll get a secret knitting pattern (or two!) in your inbox. Expect fun, speedy knits and super-giftable accessories, as well as one grand, irresistible “advent calendar” design, designed to make the most of 24 mini skeins of yarn or your own colourful stash of scraps.

That’s Knitvent in a nutshell. A Curious Handmade holiday tradition. A way to make holiday gift knitting even more fun, especially if you’ve left it until almost the last minute. 


The pattern in Knitvent Window #4 requires 100gm of a DK/8ply weight yarn.

Helen has knit two different samples for the Knitvent Window #4 pattern - one in our Merino Nylon DK 'Sugar Mouse' colourway and a second in our Cormo DK 'Marzipan Mouse' colourway.


Hand dyed in small batches using professional quality acid dyes and heat set to ensure colours that will last.

Please ensure you buy enough yarn for your project at the same time, as colours between dye batches can vary.  Even within the same dye batch skeins will vary - that is the beauty and nature of hand dyed yarn - every skein is unique and individual.

Every effort has been made to remove any excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain, particularly with dark and rich colours.  It is therefore recommended to gently hand wash your hand dyed projects on their own, in cold water, with wool wash or a mild detergent.
