Since Saturday I’ve completed and even blocked 3 stockings, written up the pattern and layed it out. Then today I roped my mum into decorating her fireplace (my little flat does have 3, but they’re all black) and took some photos.

I hope you like them. They’re worked from the toe up with a Japanese short row heel and stranded colourwork at the cuffs which are finished with an I-cord bind off that neatly continues to form the hanging loop. Charts are included for all 26 letters, a tree, snowflake and a bird. These stockings are a great way to stashbust and they’d also make a wonderful introduction to the world of sock knitting – no teeny needles or second sock syndrome!
