Give your stocking game a refresh with this delightful colorwork duo! Whether you prefer modern or traditional, these stockings will be perfect to hang by chimney with care.

Both stockings follow the same pattern, but use different color-work charts to make either a traditional Fair Isle or a modern geometric stocking. The stockings are worked from the cuff down in the round. Stitches are knitted onto scrap yarn to be worked later for an afterthought heel. Both patterns are completely charted.
