Day 12 – Alternating Spike st, changing to inset mosaic

It’s a nice short one again today, and this is a stitch you’ll be a pro at by now! It’s the same pattern as we looked at first on day 2 but doesn’t it feel different in this shade of yarn? Like little wintry icicles!

Special abbreviation
Spike dc (spike double crochet) – insert hook in st 2 rows below, yrh, pul to height of working row, yrh, draw through both loops on hook.
Standing stitches are made as usual sts beginning with the slip knot on hook.

Row 1 (WS): Join Icing Sugar with a standing dc in first st, *1 spike dc, 1 dc; rep from * to end. Turn. 117 sts
Row 2 (RS): 1 ch, 1 dc, *1 dc, 1 spike dc; rep from * to last 2 sts, 2 dc. Turn.
Rows 3–5: 1 ch, dc to end. Turn.
Row 6 (RS): 1 ch, 4 dc, *2 ch, miss 1 st, 3 dc; rep from * to last st, 1 dc. Turn. 89 sts
Row 7 (WS): 1 ch, 4 dc, *2 ch, miss 2ch-sp, 3 dc; rep from * to last st, 1 dc. Turn.
Do not fasten off. Leave loop on a locking marker until tomorrow.

    I also have limocello behind door 12. What do I do? Do I use it and spoil the colour pattern, or will icing sugar be behind another door? Can you post out the correct ball of wool to me please

    Me too☹️
    Not the first wrong colour.
    I feel like pulling out all yarns to check- which negates the reason for an advent calendar!!
    Good luck with e- mail I sent one with other concerns on 3rd. I got a standard mail back to say they’re busy,normally should hear back in 3 days ( 9 days ago)
    I was so looking forward to enjoying this, with back up as required.

    Anyone else suffering from many joins in the balls of yarn. I’ve only just finshed day 5 crotchet and that yarn had three joins in it. Very disappointed…

    I emailed the team regarding a couple of wrong colours and got a response the next day offering a list of what colours should be behind which doors (if I would like it – they didn’t just put it in the email so as not to give away any spoilers). Found them very helpful. It has helped me identify which colours I am missing and am now working out options.
