These cute little fairisle stockings are great for using up leftover yarn. I have made these to give instead of Christmas cards. You can also use them as a Christmas calendar and put tiny presents inside.
These have been knitted in the round using short double pointed needles. I started at the cuff and worked down. The stockings have a real turned heel. I love making these because you can really let your imagination go in planning what patterning to do next! When you make them in double knitting wool each stocking is 11-12 cm (about 4-5 inches) high.
So far I have two tutorial videos on these. They explain the basics and can serve as basic instructions for creating your own stockings.
