Here’s a classic holiday decoration! Using Judy’s Magic Loop CO, you’ll start this stocking from the toe … working in the round, with color-work sections to make the knitting interesting, you’ll soon have an heirloom quality stocking for the newest baby, your best friend, or anyone on your holiday list!

The sample shown is knit with Knit Picks Cot-Lin in
MC: Moroccan Red (2 sks -- 250 yards)
CC1: Swan (approx 75 yards)
CC2: Nightfall (approx 75 yards)
CC3: Sprout (approx 75 yards)

If you don’t want to personalize this stocking, I’ve included two other possibilities for that “stripe” -- a candy-cane diagonal or holly leaves.

The stocking is lined, using a piece of Christmas fabric to coordinate with the colors used. You’ll need about 1/2-yard of 44” fabric. The lining is machine-sewed but hand-sewn into the stocking.
