Earth, Wind & Fire

EARTH – WIND – FIRE
is the theme of this year’s Frida Fuchs advent calendar.

This shawl has been exclusively designed especially for this advent calendar, which is filled with 21 mini skeins (73 m / 20 g each) in the base „Steppke“ (100% single-ply Merino) in specially created colorways and a full skein of „Dufte Lace“ (74% Suri Alpaca / 26% silk) as the main color as well as some additional knitting-related goodies.

There are 4 color options to choose from: Earth (with earthy neutrals), Wind (with cool shades), Fire (with warm shades) and Elements, which combines colors from the other 3 options.

Both the colorways and the pattern are top-secret for now, so your surprise will not be spoiled before you unpack and knit each day of the calendar – which also means that you can knit this as an advent Mystery Knit-A-Long (MKAL)!

To connect and chat, please use the Frida Fuchs group here on Ravelry, or post on social media with the tags #SOSUadventMKAL2020 and #fridafuchsadvent2020 – no spoilers, please!

The calendar is already sold out, but the pattern will be available as a download at a later date.

DETAILS

Colors:

Earth, Wind, Fire – these three elements inspired our colour combinations.

You can choose between these options:

  • Earth: main colour dark brown/black plus six new contrasting colourways corresponding with the theme “Earth”
  • Wind: main colour light grey plus six new contrasting colourways corresponding with the theme “Wind”
  • Fire:  main colour light beige/grey plus six new contrasting colourways corresponding with the theme “Fire”

Additionally, we offer a fourth option called “Elements”, which includes colours of all three themes:

  • Elements => main colour light grey plus six contrasting colourways corresponding with the themes “Earth”, “Wind” & “Fire”
Yarn:

The main yarn is „Dufte Lace“, our fluffy and super soft Suri Alpaca made from 74 % Alpaca and 26 % Silk (300 m / 50 gr).

You will also get a total of 21 Minifüchse Single, mini skeins of our single-ply base made from 100 % Merino (73 m / 20 gr). Three of these come in the main colour, the other 18 consist of 6 brandnew colourways exclusively designed for the calendar.

ATTENTION => If you don’t like Suri Alpaca, you can ask for substituting it with a skein of Steppke Single (100 % Merino single-ply; same base as the minis) by sending an E-Mail to info@fridafuchs.com.

The 22 skeins of yarn will come together with two high quality knit-related goodies. All 24 pieces will be wrapped nicely.

Pattern:

You will get the pattern as pdf-document attached to an E-Mail at the end of November. This document will have 24 pages, one for each day – and it is up to you if you knit it step-by-step, day-by-day or all at once. The pattern has no pictures and no schematics – so you can make it your own advent MKAL and find a little surprise every morning. There will be a second document with a picture and schematics – and if you want a spoiler, just open this document, too.

Please use the hashtags #SOSUadventMKAL2020 and #fridafuchsadvent2020 when posting in social media – this way SOSU and we can find and admire your projects and watch your progress. Please do only post pictures of the same day´s clue not to spoil other knitters, thank you. There will be „spoiler-threads“ and „no-spoiler threads“ in our Ravelry group.
