I love the crisp texture of Bavarian Twist Stitch knitting. Its ribs and cables give a rich textured effect on this roomy Christmas stocking. The stocking is begun by knitting an i-cord band and picking up stitches along its length, leaving a short tail for the hanging loop. The leg and foot are knitted in twist stitch patterns. The 12-page pattern contains both written instructions and charts, so if you have a question about anything, you can compare the two. The pattern includes a Technique Feature on picking up and knitting stitches from I-cord, and a photo tutorial on turning the heel and picking up gusset stitches. In addition to the charts, the pattern includes photos of pattern details, technique illustrations, and the finished stocking.

I was taught the basics of knitting, crochet, embroidery, and sewing by my grandmother when I was young. I have found that I enjoy doing a variety of fiber related crafts, and have over the years learned to spin yarn, weave, tat, braid, felt and bead. But the greatest satisfaction for me comes from using my God-given creativity to create my own designs and techniques.
