A knitted christmas stocking pattern with traditional colourwork that is fast and perfect for stash busting.
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! 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.
