There are 8 different options: plain, (mock) cabled, beaded, mosaic, Fair Isle, gansey, striped, and two-colour. Complete directions for each stocking option are on separate pattern pages and are both charted and written. They are perfect for gifts, Secret Santa presents, stocking stuffers, garlands, and gift tags.
These are entirely knitted in the round using the Magic Loop technique and are completely seamless, with a minimum of finishing and ends to weave in. The seed stitch hanging loops are worked right off the top of the cuff.
Approximately 3.5-4” (9-10 cm) tall (from toe to top of hanging loop).
Size will vary according to yarn selection and personal gauge.
--Fingering weight yarn: approx. 5-6g total, depending on yarn choice.
--Fair Isle, mosaic, striped stockings will need approx. 2.5-3g of each of two colours.
--Two-colour stockings will need approx. 3-4g of MC and 1-2g of CC.
--US 1 (2.25 mm) needles
