This festive stocking pattern uses stranded colourwork to create a handsome argyle motif, perfect for the holidays. Knit in a DK weight yarn, the stocking is worked just like an oversized sock and is lined with felt for added sturdiness.The toe of the stocking is joined using a Russian grafting technique to maintain the stripe pattern and form a decorative seam.

This pattern is also available seasonally as a knitting kit which includes all the materials required to make one stocking.
