The Felted Sweater Stocking is a traditional holiday stocking worked from the top down with a short row heel, ribbed toe, and an Aran cable pattern twisting down both sides. The stocking is knit with aran or bulky weight wool on large needles and felted when complete. Hand felt for the soft "felted sweater" look, or throw in the wash for a tighter, smaller stocking. This is a great project if you're new to cabling, sock-knitting, short rows, or felting.
