Well, I finally finished writing up the pattern for my niece Paige’s Christmas Stocking. I gave up on the whole “making notes” thing by the time I hit the heel, so be forewarned.
The stocking is knit with bulky yarn (Knit Picks Wool of the Andes) at 4sts and 4 rows to the inch on US10s. Gauge is not critical for this project, but at 4sts to the inch the stocking is about 20 inches from heel to cuff. In other words, HUGE.
This would be a great way to ease into knitting socks, as it eliminates SSS (second sock syndrome) altogether. Also, the chart could easily be modified for different color patterns.
Good luck, and please let me know if there are any errors.
