12 Months to Christmas KAL: 2017

What Is It?

  • The 12 Months to Christmas KAL is a craft-a-long that helps you prepare for the busy winter holiday season.
  • Complete gift projects each month (or just in the months that you choose) so you don’t have to scramble in December.
  • Find some cool new gift ideas, cheer each other on, and we’ll provide some motivation in the form of the potential to win prizes!


  • Finish 1 project during each/all of the 12 months of 2017 that you plan to gift for the 2017 holidays (Christmas/Hanukkah/Solstice/Kwanzaa, or whatever you celebrate).
  • FOs can be: knit, crochet, weaving, spinning, machine knitting
  • WIPs are fine as long as you finish it in the given month for which you are posting it.
  • No minimum yardage count.
  • Max one FO per person per month.
  • You do not need to participate in every month. You pick and choose which months work for you.
  • Post your FO in the 12 Months to Christmas FO Thread and list the month for your entry
    • You may post your entry late (ex- post the item you finished in February in early March but will not be eligible to win a prize for the month of February but your entry will still be in the thread for drawings in later months of the year).
  • Winners will be pulled randomly from all posts in the thread, so the more months in which you participate, the better chance you’ll have to win prizes.
