Description

Hand knit Christmas Stockings are perfectly awesome on their own…but when you think about it, they’re just big socks, right? When you learn the techniques of making a stocking, you’re also learning what you need to know to follow any cuff-down sock pattern! That’s why I’m offering this as a seven-lesson video series.

In this lesson, you will learn:
• working in-the-round on circular and double-pointed needles
• changing yarn colors
• sock basics, like working a heel flap, turning the heel, gusset decreases
• duplicate stitch embroidery on your finished stocking

Materials Needed:
• About 200 yards of worsted weight yarn (the samples are knit with Wool-Ease in green and cream or red and cream)
• Size 7 US needles 16” circular needles, size 7 US double-pointed needles
• 3 stitch markers
• Tapestry needle
• Scrap yarn for embroidery (optional)
• Gauge – 4.5 stitches/1 inch
