Amigurumi Advent is back for a fifth year!

It’s time for a new crochet adventure with Irene Strange and Ilaria Caliri – Amigurumi Advent 2022 MCAL! This December join us for a brand new mystery crochet-along and unwrap a cute crochet surprise every day until Christmas Day.

Is this the first time you hear about the Amigurumi Advent MCAL? Have a look at the FAQ page or browse our previous collections on here, you’ll find the photos of all the mini patterns together! Every year there is a new theme and brand new original crochet patterns!

This year’s collection is full of the unexpected – with cute funny animals, unusual objects and yummy treats – it’s all colourful and fun. The big bonus pattern is the crochet Party Cactus - anyone fancy a big green hug?

We will reveal the mini collection day by day, advent calendar style, starting on the first day of December all the way to Christmas Eve.

Enrol today to receive the crochet pattern to make the Party Cactus, introduction to the MCAL and a stitch guide for the project.


Early-bird sign-ups are open until the 30th of November 2021 (you can get the new Amigurumi Advent MCAL 40% OFF the regular price)

- What yarn will we need? 

For this MCAL we are using Paintbox Cotton DK (100% cotton, 50gr/125m/137yds), it’s a nice thickness for making Amigurumi.
You can find it on* 

Please note the MCAL pattern is not included with the yarn and needs to be purchased separately. 

This is the yarn list to make the whole collection and the bonus make:

White (Champagne White 403)
Yellow (Daffodil Yellow 422)
Light pink (Blush Pink 454)

Dark Green (Racing Green 428)
Blue (Marine Blue 434)

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. This year's collection will look great in all kinds of colour combinations! 

*Affiliate link. You buy at the same price and we will get a small percentage. Thank you!

Can I use a different yarn?

Of course, dive into your stash or follow one of our suggested palettes in the Introduction document.

You can mix different brand of DK cotton yarn if some colours are not availabe in your preferred shop – or if you already have some of those colours in your stash!

Can I use a different hook size?

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

What patterns will there be?

A Party Cactus and 24 mystery patterns to decorate it throughout the advent weeks. All projects are designed to be fun and quick to make, take a look out our past collections to get an idea of the variety!

Do I have to make all the patterns in the MCAL?

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 this merry adventure and crochet at your own pace.

Do we have to share the projects on Instagram?

Sharing on social media is completely optional, we do love seeing all your makes! Make sure to use #amigurumiadvent2022

We like to hang out in our Ravelry group too!
