December 1: Countdown to Christmas

The 24 Days of Christmas is finally here! We started this annual tradition eleven years ago, and the 24 Days of SWAK has become a bit of fun that many look forward to each year. We’ll have daily posts spreading holiday cheer along with prizes, patterns, recipes, holiday tips and much more.

Audience participation is key, and it is easy for you to play along. To comment on any of the posts, simply give your name and email address. Don’t worry, your email will not be posted anywhere for anyone to see.

Be sure to check in daily – some prizes are only available the day of posting only, so don’t miss out. If you are a prize winner, please note that all prizes must be picked up in person at our shop no later than February 1, 2020. We do not mail or ship prizes, however if you live afar and order merchandise online we are happy to include your prize with your shipment.


These COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS kits seemed the perfect way to kick off the 24 Days of SWAK. Each kit includes adorable little bags, one for each of the 12 Days of Christmas filled with beautiful hand dyed mini-skeins of Brew City Premium Draft and Lucky Charms along with a full skein of undyed Premium Draft yarn.

We have designed this gorgeous linen stitch infinity scarf for the COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS kit. It works up quick enough to knit along as you open each bag as the holiday approaches, or save it for the true 12 Days of Christmas. A fabulous gift for a special knitter.

Today our treat for you is a free download of this beautiful infinity scarf, a great way to use up left over sock yarns or treat yourself to a COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS kit. Limited quantities are in stock.

Click here to download your pattern today, for it will be gone tomorrow!

Missed out? Worry not! The pattern is complimentary with the purchase of a Countdown to Christmas kit, or available as a download for $5.
