Amigurumi Advent is back for another year of crochet treats!

It’s time for a new crochet adventure with Irene Strange and Ilaria Caliri – Amigurumi Advent 2023 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 inspired by our favourite furry friends – with cozy cuddles, cute accessories and a bit of festive mischief!
The bonus pattern is the crochet 
Cozy House - how will you decorate yours?

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 Cozy House, introduction to the MCAL and a stitch guide for the project.


Early-bird sign-ups are open until the 30th of November 2023 (you can get the new Amigurumi Advent MCAL 40% OFF the regular price)

- What yarn will we need? 

For this MCAL we are using Rico Creative Ricorumi DK (100% cotton, 25gr/57m/62yds), it’s a nice thickness for making Amigurumi. You can find it on Lovecrafts.comand many other online yarn shops.

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

For the Cozy Houses choose your favourite colour from the palette, allowing around 17g of DK weight cotton per house - for example, to make 3 houses in the same colour you would need to get 2 extra balls of Ricorumi.  

This is the yarn list to make the 24 surprise amigurumi

White (002 Cream) x2 balls 
Beige (054 Ecru)
Light brown (071 Sand) x2 balls 
Dark brown (057 Chocolate)
Red (028 Red) x2 balls

Pink (008 Rose)
Light yellow (005 Vanilla)
Dark yellow (063 Saffron) x2 balls 
Light green (047 Pistachio)
Dark green (050 Fir Green)
Light grey (058 Silver Grey)
Dark grey (080 Slate


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!

Will the MCAL be available on this year too?

This year we will not be hosting the MCAL updates on, as there are unpredictable delays with the update system that could lead to customers missing out on the daily surprise.

But we will upload the completed eBook there as soon as the MCAL is finished!

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! Please note: we do not recommend making the Cosy House in acrylic yarns as they lack the structure cotton yarn gives to unstuffed amigurumi.

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 Cosy House (make 1 or 2 or 24!) and 24 mystery pattern surprise through out the advent weeks. Each day's surprise will fit into a single house. 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 #amigurumiadvent2023

We like to hang out in our Ravelry group too!

What's the difference with last year's 'Amigurumi Advent'?

It's a brand new mystery, we hope you will love it! Take a look at the Moodboard to get an idea of what to expect!
