Advent Meditation Part II

Hello lovelies!

We hope you have enjoyed making your first coaster and are ready for the second Advent Meditation!    We would absolutely love to see your makes from last week (well and the ones of these week as well), so post them on Facebook, Instagram or wherever we can see them (we might need the link...). 



Tomorrow is the second of Advent and we hope this meditation helps you to take some time out of your normal busy day and reflect.

This weeks download can be found in different place. As you might recall, we had some problem with the bandwidth of our google drive last week (a lot more of you wanted to download the meditation which made us very happy!) and this might happen again this week. Therefore we have prepared alternative listing/download ways for you ahead which can we found below! If one doesn't work, please try another one.



--> Please note that this is a free filehoster which uses advertisement to fund its service. There is a mini tutorial on last weeks post on how to download the file from there. 

Enjoy this week meditation! If you need help, you can find us on Facebook. Just a quick reminder: We are doing this for free in our free time. We tried very hard to avoid mistakes but hey, we are only humans, so there might be some. If you find one, write us and we will start a errata list. 

Take care
Michelle & Anne

Advent Meditation Part I


Hello Hello!


The first part of the Advent Meditation is here! We are sooo excited about it and can't wait to hear how you like it! General information about the idea can be found here



For the first pattern, you need about 20 grams of DK yarn (we use Stylecraft Classique Cotton), a 4mm crochet hook, scissors and a yarn needle.

It is a very easy pattern, however you need to know how to crochet sc, dc and ch stitches. The pattern begins with a magic circle. We simply adore that technique but if you can't do a magic circle (yet), you can also crochet 4ch and close them to a circle. When you finished the pattern, remember to sew in all the ends securely! 

Remember to take your time, don't be afraid to pause or rewind if you need to, and above all don't get stressed about it - this is meant to be a relaxing, mindful, creative activity.

Note 3rd Dec: This has become far more popular than we expected and as you probably noticed, our bandwidth with Googledrive has expire. So we looked into alternative solutions and have come up with the following.

1. You can listen to the podcast via Youtube. The video can be found here

2. We have now uploaded the file several times to the Filehoster 1fichier. The filehoster is can be used for free but of course that means they found themselves with ads. We recommend installing an adblocker to your browser but it works without too. You will just have to ignore tons of advertisement. When you open the link, scroll to the bottom of the page. Down there it will look like this. 



Click access to download and the next page will open. You will have to scroll down again and then there will be a button to download the file. Note that you need to click through to the actual download page in one go (no going back and forth) otherwise it will make you wait 60 min before you can download "again".



But without much further ado, here come the download via 1fichier: 
a) Crochet Advent Meditation b) Crochet Advent Meditation c) Crochet Advent Meditation 

We have the file on Googledrive as well but the bandwidth there expired as so many of you downloaded it (hurray for the downloads, argh for the bandwidth thing). If you reading this after the first advent weekend, it might work for you again, so here comes the link just in case Crochet Advent Meditation Part I.

Please post pictures of your finished coasters on our Facebook page or on instagram (hashtag #cbwadvent)! We can't wait to see them. :) We do ask you however to wait for 1-2 days til you post pictures, so others will have the moment of surprise too! Thank you :)

Feel free to ask us questions, we will try to reply as soon as possible. Please note that we are doing this for free in our spare time for you to enjoy, that is please be kind and give us the time needed.

Should you find a mistake (we hope there are none, but we are only human after all), please message them to us directly. If needed, we will have an errata list here. 

Enjoy and happy first Advent Sunday!!

Take care
Michelle & Anne
