Begin the holiday season by hanging these colorwork stockings from your mantle! Scandinavian inspired snowflake motifs decorate the stocking for a traditional look while a modern abstract snowflake pattern gives an updated look to this classic design. These stockings are knit as a straight tube in stranded two color knitting, with a quick interlude to hold the heel stitches. The toe and heel are worked after the stranded knitting is done, and they are decreased like the top of a hat. The stocking is then finished with an applied i-cord edge and a loop so you can hang your stocking up right away. Perfect for family and friends, the Modern Classics Stockings include an alphabet chart so you can customize each stocking with the recipient’s name (up to seven letters).
