Notes

My instructions are “skinny and about 18” long.” Will do! Love the colors. I’ve never worked with Dalegarn before, so this will be fun!

Intarsia is not fun. :P I do like this yarn, but it’s not knitting up very evenly….I hope it blocks out pretty well. I probably should have added an inch to the instep. The foot looks a little short. I’ll reassess when I get nearer the end. I’m still not sure if this will be a 16” or 18” stocking.

The cuff as written does not produce the cuff as pictured. I had to fudge mine a little. If it doesn’t come out right, I’ll have to frog back a bit….

Hated the cuff, so I ripped and redid it. I think if you purl the knits and knit the purls as written for the cuff, it should work, but I made my own alterations, especially when I remembered I needed to put a name on the cuff. :S Looks good now. I left off the loops because I don’t figure a boy will appreciate them. Will use these letters.

Didn’t use those letters. I charted some of my own. I wish I had had wool the right color for the duplicate stitching, but I only had nylon. I think it looks fine, though. It’s super cute. I think I’ll fasten the cuff down in a couple places and call it good!
