Join Lynda on a Christmas-themed knitting adventure. The free pattern from Cascade yarns used in this stocking allows you to mix and match charted designs to create an heirloom that will be treasured for years to come. The stocking knits up quickly on a 16″ size 7 circular needle with worsted weight yarn. You will learn how to read a chart, how to knit with two yarns at the same time, how to create an after-thought heel and receive blocking tips for a beautifully finished stocking.
Tackle the color work in this stocking with just two colors, or combine as many colors as you like – the choice is yours! It’s a great stash-busting project – you could even sign up with a friend and share your stash. Be sure to take a look at this pattern’s project page on Ravelry for all kinds of color and design inspiration – there are over 1200 entries to ooh and aah over!
