This traditional colorwork Christmas stocking is a quick and fun project to get you in the holiday spirit! Knit up in Aran weight yarn, the knitting moves deceptively quickly, especially with big colorwork sections to keep you motivated! The pattern, by Thistle Glenn Designs, is available for purchase separately on Ravelry.
The stocking is knit from the top down on a 16" circular needle, though DPN's or magic loop can be substituted easily, with instructions for a wrap and turn short row heel, and a traditional wedge toe. We knit our stocking in Osprey, a squishy, 3-ply yarn that is incredibly easy to work with.
This bundle includes all of the materials you need to make one stocking (pattern purchased separately on Ravelry):
- 2 skeins of Osprey, (1 main color, 1 contrast color)
- a EWE stitch marker to mark the BOR
- large eyed darning needle for weaving in the ends
- packed up in our exclusive drawstring project bag.
