One of my favorite Christmas treats has always been ribbon candies. In this stocking, they frame the edges of a garland.

Worked in two-color stranding, this stocking is worked top down, with a picot hem, contrast flap-heel and a star toe. The ribbons are repeated across the toe just before the shaping.

Yarn: MC: 208 yds 190m; CC: 98 yds 90m.

Gauge: 24 sts x 27 rows to 4 inches10cm in stranded and 22 sts x 30 rows to 4 inches 10cm in stockinette. The gauge is not critical in this project but you will want a fairly tight, smooth fabric. Check both stranded and stockinette gauges. If your stranded knitting is very tight you might want to consider a smaller needle for the foot of the stocking so it will be in proportion to the leg.

If you would like a smaller stocking choose a sport or fingering weight yarn and smaller needles to match those suggested by the yarn. Any weight of yarn will work for this stocking but each will give you a different size depending on your yarn and needle choice. Yardage required may also vary.
