I wanted to design a series of traditional Christmas stockings using various different motifs and certain repeating themes. Hearts & Trees and Diamonds and Circles stockings are designs one and two of four different stockings in the series. It's always about the details for me when creating a knitted piece, and these stockings have some lovely ones. Each stocking begins with a two-color cast-on and knitted braid and progresses through several different motifs and color changes. Use duplicate stitch after the stockings are finished to personalize for someone special. Video tutorials are available online to help you through the tricky bits! The Fair-Isle Stockings II pattern is also available here on Craftsy.
