Christmas Stocking ~ Snow Caps
Christmas Stocking Snow Caps shows my more traditional side. I do admit the Harlequin is my favorite, but I designed Snow Caps for the times I am feeling a little nostalgic and want to display my traditional Christmas decorations.
For the Snow Caps Christmas Stocking yarn colors, I chose the much loved and all-time favorite traditional red, white and green. Along with the Christmas Stocking’s more traditional, body and toe shape I just had to include the all-important white fuzzy cuff! And the Chevron stitch pattern adds that extra something special, right? This design is so darn cute, makes you want to get started right now!!
The cuff is worked in a gauge of 4″ (10cm); while the body of the stocking is 20sts and 26rows = 4″ (10cm).
Along with the written instructions I also included a color chart and a few helpful videos.
The video tutorials include:
1. How to knit Fair Isle
2. Working the Heel Flap, Heel Turn, and Gusset
3. I Cord
♦As are all my knitting patterns; this pattern has been test knit twice and both professionally copy and tech edited for accuracy.
