This alternative Christmas Advent calendar can be made from oddments of yarn. Jemma Weston has used Kid Classic but any other yarn from your stash, that is suitable for felting, can be used as a substitute.
This cushion has been designed to use up all the oddments of yarn that aren't long enough to be used in a project in their own right. It can be worked using either 4ply, DK or aran weight yarn from your stash.
Crochet this chunky homeware blanket, the member's exclusive free pattern for December 2014. Designed by Marie Wallin using the beautiful yarn Cocoon (merino wool and kid mohair), this blanket is made up of a series of striped patches and finished with a crochet trim.
