Christmas Stocking 1 - secret santa




•     Begin the stocking without the cuff. After completion pick up stitches       at the top and add an optional cuff (we include 3 choices)
•     Decorate with whatever embellishments you choose, or choose from       one our suggestions
•     Personalize with recipients name or initials (graphed out alphabet is        included)
•     Weave back seam and sew on knit or crochet hanging loop

                                              Ways to have fun:
•     Have a family grab bag and each family member decorates a stocking        for the name they draw. It might be interesting if everyone starts with        the same color stocking filet. It is unbelievable how different each one        looks after decorating
•     Have a stocking decorating party with friends and family. The hostess        supplies all the embellishments or everyone brings a few for sharing
•     Start a tradition, knit Christmas stockings filets for every member of        your family and let them decorate the stockings, then do the finishing        for them.

Brown Sheep's Lamb's Pride Worsted
85% wool - 15% mohair
100 grams - 190 yards each

2 pull skeins or approximately 250 yards of worsted weight yarn
Colors of your choice for contrasting color cuff and embellishments

For your stocking to be the correct size, it is not the brand of yarn that matters, but the GAUGE that is important.

It is best to refer to the yardage to determine how many skeins or balls to purchase

size 9 straight needles; or size needles to obtain the correct gauge
size 9 double pointed needles

gauge ruler
embellishments, embellishments, embellishments, etc
tapestry needle

20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch - gauge is not that important

You should use the recommended gauge, but it does not have to be as precise as for a sweater. If you are knitting tighter than the recommended gauge, the stocking will be smaller and use less yarn. If you are knitting looser than the recommended gauge, the stocking will be larger, use more yarn and need more stocking stuffer presents. Try different size needles if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

  Projects with a variety of stitches, such as basic cables    and lace, simple intarsia, double-pointed needles and   knitting in the round needle techniques, mid-level   shaping and finishing.
