Pattern Description:

This 15-page pattern creates a crisply textured Christmas stocking with an I-cord border and hanging loop, a garland band at the top and a cabled pattern on the leg and foot. The pattern contains both written instructions and charts, along with illustrated tutorials for three techniques used in the stocking. Instructions are also given for grafting the ends of the I-cord together to form the hanging loop.

I have listed "skills necessary" here, but most of these techniques are described in the pattern instructions; it is not really necessary to already know how to do them. I listed them to give the knitter an idea of what is involved in making this stocking. If you have questions about a specific technique, email me at Fiberworks@mountain-mist.com and I can tell you if the technique is described and/or illustrated in the pattern.

Technique Features:
Picking up and Knitting Stitches from I-cord
Making a Bobble
Gwennie's Increase ( a unique way to make a
knitted increase)
