Advent Devotions - Advent Scarf CAL

Last year I posted daily Advent Scripture on my blog to accompany the Advent Scarf CAL. This year, I’m very excited to partner with the Lutheran Hour Ministries. The LHM is a global media that reaches more than 56 million people worldwide each week. LHM’s flagship ministry, The Lutheran Hour®, airs weekly on more than 1,800 radio stations and the American Forces Network. Every year, they publish an Advent Devotion booklet, and I’ve been given permission to post the daily devotions here on my blog. Be sure to check in every day during the CAL and read their wonderful devotions.

Advent Scarf 2017: Crochet-a-Long

PLEASE JOIN ME!




 PATTERN LINK: ADVENT SCARF 2017

Join me for a crochet-a-long this holiday season. I have designed a unique sampler scarf that coincides with the Advent season. Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas – 22 days. This year it begins on December 3, 2017. On this day you will crochet the start of a lovely, lacy scarf. Each day thereafter, a new stitch pattern will be introduced and added to the previous one. By December 24th, you will have completed your Advent Scarf. Be sure to download and read thoroughly the TUTORIAL so you will be prepared to crochet the scarf as designed. This is NOT a mystery CAL – photos are included with each stitch pattern.

HOW DO I GET THE PATTERN?
Download the Placeholder (contains all info) and the Tutorial NOW. Once you have purchased the pattern, you will receive a daily update notice via email and/or Ravelry that provides a link to each scarf addition. Additionally, each new PDF should be automatically placed in Ravelry members Library. We officially begin with the first stitch pattern on Sunday, December 3rd.

IMPORTANT
Please be aware that once you have purchased the Advent Scarf pattern, you will automatically receive email and/or Ravelry messages on a DAILY basis, informing you when each days stitch pattern is available. You will receive a separate message every day for 22 days – that’s at least 22 messages for the duration of the CAL. If you wish to drop out of the CAL and stop receiving the daily messages, you must remove the pattern from your Library. I am not able to discontinue the emails once your purchase has been made.
