This decorative stocking is a quick knit, and uses the Turkish cast on for a toe-up construction. More about Turkish knitting and stockings in particular in the blog post, T is for Turkey. Use lace weight yarn as described, or whatever you like.

The design motif running up this miniature stocking is based on a traditional Turkish pattern called “written charm, double,” which I have divided in half, vertically. It is also similar to a design called “walnut kernel.” Both patterns are charted in Betsy Harrell’s excellent book, Anatolian Knitting Designs (Istanbul: Redhouse Press, 1981).
