Pancake and Lulu Advent HQ

Welcome to the Festive Yarn Tasting


The 2021 Advent Calendar is inspired by festive treats and fun drinks in all the colors! Each mini skein is paired with a fun colorful recipe I have found online.  


Each day, I post a photo reveal of the day's colorway along with a photo of the inspirational recipe. I encourage everyone to try some of the recipes with me! 

You can follow along with me on instagram @pancakeandlulu and my YouTube channel: Pancake and Lulu Yarn and Fiber.


  If you use Instagram or Ravelry, use the hashtag #pancakeandlulu to post your daily yarn and/or a special treat of the day (whatever it may be)! 


Thank you for purchasing the Advent Calendar and for supporting Pancake and Lulu Yarn ~ I had a blast creating this for you.
Enjoy your stitching, sipping and nibbling!


🎄Happy Holidays!🎄
