There’s a Big Surprise Inside Frankie Brown’s Knitted Christmas House / Advent Calendar … Free Pattern!

This Christmas House pattern might be my most favorite Frankie Brown pattern ever!

Inspired by Victorian needlework boxes, there is lots to see on the outside of this knitted Christmas House. Lift the roof off and the walls collapse to reveal a decorated Christmas tree standing inside. The insides of the walls are filled with 24 little pockets so it can also be used as an Advent Calendar. The finished house stands 20 cm / 8” tall and is about 11.5 cm / 4½“ square.
