Notes
  • Went up a needle size for a slightly larger, stretchier stocking

  • My Gauge: 15 sts and 20 rows = 4”

  • Long-tail cast on (w/4 less stitches than called for to compensate for bulky yarn) for cuff

  • Work in st st for 3”, then switch to main stocking color (increasing 4 sts on first round)

  • Leg: 14 inches

  • 1 extra gusset decrease round (46 stitches) because the foot looked too fat and goofy. I think 2 extra decrease rounds would be ideal.

  • Knit foot to 9” before starting toe decreases

  • Decrease toe to 6 sts, graft closed

  • One skein of RH in “Claret” makes 2 stockings with several yards of yarn to spare.

  • Duplicate stitched names (Alphabet charts found here)

  • Tacked down the cuff with 4 evenly spaced stitches to keep it from rolling up
