Amigurumi Advent 2020 MCAL by Airali design and Irene Strange

Amigurumi Advent 2020 is a paid for Mystery Crochet Along by Airali design and Irene Strange which includes 24 amigurumi patterns released daily – like an advent calendar – from 1st to 24th of December. You can join us on Ravelry or Lovecraft!

You can also sign in on our Etsy shop – the pattern will be redeemed on Ravelry – we are giving this option to allow more payment options.

MCAL stands for Mystery Crochet-Along, an online event which runs for a limited time where people work together on the same project. With Mystery crochet-alongs we know the theme of the Crochet-Along but not the specific projects, which are released in parts throughout the event.

You can also sign in on our Etsy shop – the pattern will be redeemed on Ravelry – we are selling the MCAL on Etsy only to allow more payment options.

To take part in the Mystery Crochet-Along you will need to purchase a copy of the MCAL pattern either on Ravelry or on LoveCrafts.com.
It’s on sale from the 18th of November – Early-Bird price is 15$ only until 29th of November.

For those joining the MCAL via Ravelry the daily updates will be sent out through the Ravelry pattern update tool, with each part presented as a separate PDF file. Click the update pattern icon in your individual Pattern Library to update the PDF.

For those joining the MCAL on LoveCrafts.com the PDF pattern file will be re-uploaded each day with the latest part added on to make the file longer.

For those joining the MCAL on Etsy the patterns will be redeemed on Ravelry, a daily update will be received by email.

Join us in the Amigurumi Adventures Ravelry group to chat and share your Advent in progress!

Having a Ravelry account isn’t essential but it will help get the pattern updates easier.

With this and our previous MCALs we offer an introductory Early-Bird price for the first to join, it means you get a the whole Amigurumi Advent experience for a special price!

Price will be 20$ from the 1st of December to the 31st of December. Regular price is 25$.

For this MCAL we are using Paintbox DK Cotton, it’s a nice thickness for making Amigurumi.
You can find a ready made yarn pack in 2 colorways (Pop and Classic) on sale on Lovecrafts.com (this is an affiliate link).
Please note the MCAL pattern is not included with the yarn pack and needs to be purchased separately.

But of course you are welcome to use a different yarn! This is a nice stash-busting project, as small makes don’t need as much yardage.

Note: this year colour packs includes different shades than Amigurumi Advent 2019. If you have leftover yarn from last year, feel free to use that and add leftovers from other projects too!

Depending on your yarn you may need to change to bigger or smaller hook size, find one that works best for you!

A crochet gift box in 3 sizes (and many many ways to decorate it!) and 24 little patterns, one on each day of the advent.

This year’s collection is inspired by classic toys and games. Each day will bring a new original design, all working together as a set.

You are welcome to make all of the daily patterns or just your favourites – it’s totally up to each maker! We hope you will enjoy receiving the daily surprise and crochet at your own pace enjoying the countdown to Christmas Day.

Sharing on social media is completely optional, we do love seeing all your makes and share them on our Instagram Story!

Use the hashtags #amigurumiadvent and #amigurumiadvent2020 for a chance to win a fun prize at the end of the MCAL!

Like last years’ Advent we will surprise you with 1 new mini make every day from 1st to 24th December. The 24 mystery patterns will be all new, with no repeats with last years’ MCAL.
