Advent Calendar

Signups for the 2020 Advent Calendar are closed.

An advent calendar is a tradition during the month of December during which time a small gift is opened each day starting on the 1st through the 24th followed by a larger gift on the 25th. Imagine opening a small muslin bag each day in December and finding a gorgeous mini skein of yarn inside. Then imagine opening a larger muslin bag on the 25th and finding a spectacular full skein of yarn created exclusively for this advent calendar.

You don't have to just imagine it! You can live that experience this December when you sign up for the Round Table Yarns Advent Calendar.

About the Advent Calendar

What You'll Get

You'll receive a box (purple, of course) that upon opening will reveal 24 small muslin bags labeled 1-24, indicating which one you should open on which day. Inside each bag will be a mini skein of yarn (10g on the Merlin base, which is about 46 yards of a 75% superwash merino/25% nylon fingering weight yarn) in a semi-solid/tonal color. Each color will transition from one to the next (not a gradient, but a series of colors that coordinate from one to the next and with the collection as a whole) so that you can use the yarn in one project if you desire.

Also in the box will be one full size (100g) skein of yarn (also the Merlin base, so that is 463 yards of fingering weight yarn) which has been created exclusively for this advent calendar. (Note: The full size skein is not intended to coordinate with the minis. The color is technically variegated but all within the same color family so it might be more accurately described as an "extreme" tonal.)

Project Suggestions

What can you make with your mini skeins? I have a bundle of pattern suggestions listed on Ravelry that I'll be adding to over the next few months so that you can have some ideas of what you might make with your advent calendar minis.


Sign ups for the calendar will run through the end of August or until the maximum number has been reached.

Boxes will ship November 2, 2020.

Payment Details

You can pay for the entire advent calendar when you sign up or you can pay in three installment payments. The advent calendar pricing is based upon your shipping location:

$120 within the U.S.
$130 to Canada

Note: Due to shipping problems from the coronavirus pandemic, advent calendars will only be shipped to the U.S. and Canada this year.

Installment Payment Details

If you chose installment payments, you’ll pay the first installment payment on the date you sign up for the advent calendar. You’ll then have two more installment payments. The date of payment in both of those months will be the same date you signed up for the advent calendar. (So that means that if you sign up on July 30, for example, you’ll be making the additional payments on the 30th of August and September.) Payments will automatically be made to your credit card on that date each month (you should receive a notice 3 days in advance that a payment is upcoming).

When you make the final payment, you’ll get a notice that your subscription has been canceled. This is just the language used to let you know that you are at the end of your installment payments. Your subscription itself has not been canceled and you will receive the advent calendar box! 

Contact Karen if you have any additional questions.
