Knitvent 2021 is a secret collection of six perfect-for-gifting accessory patterns designed to surprise and delight you and every knitworthy person on your list. This year, indulge yourself with the comfort and warmth of handknit presents inspired by our favourite holiday-themed romantic comedies.
It’s one of the cosiest and silliest parts of the season. The ingredients are simple: a couch, a cosy blanket, a mug of hot chocolate, a bowl of buttered popcorn, and a sweet, cheesy holiday movie.
Bring on the plucky heroine from the big city who will save the small town family business while she saves Christmas (and learns about love). Bring on the cupcake shops and the quaint cottages and the chance encounters with improbable royalty. Bring on the sleigh rides and decorating montages and last-chance talent shows. Bring on the ridiculous misunderstandings and the last minute dashes to the airport.
Whether it’s a classic you’ve seen a thousand times or a brand new Netflix special, you know exactly how it will go….and how it will end.
Happily ever after, of course.
That gentle predictability is the great charm of these movies, and of the holiday season itself. The comforting rhythms and familiar themes which repeat themselves over and over. It’s what traditions are all about.
Knitvent is a long-running holiday tradition for the Curious Handmade community. It’s a little bit like an Advent calendar and a little bit like a mystery knitalong. It’s all about anticipation, surprise, and homemade gifts you can make for yourself and your loved ones…even if you’ve left it until almost the last minute.
Over the course of five festive weeks, you will receive a series of secret mystery knitting patterns, each designed to be a quick and satisfying knit. There’s a strong community aspect with a busy knitalong and lovely prizes, bustling chat threads on Ravelry and tons of inspiration on Instagram with the hashtag #knitvent2021
So join us for a lighthearted exploration of holiday movies and handknit presents! We’d love to have you along.
