Description
 
Christmas in spring? It is never too early to start planning for the holidays. In this workshop, you learn how to knit a Christmas stocking, personalized with a name and the Nordic design of your choosing. You have the option of making a 3-color stocking or 2-color stocking. Skills covered in this workshop include seamless toe-up sock construction, stranded knitting, working an afterthought heel, knitting intarsia in the round, and an i-cord bind-off edging. These stockings are so interesting and fun, you’ll want to knit more than one. Want to knit a Hanukkah stocking? Oy vey… okayyyy, we designed our very own Hanukkah stocking with dreidels and Stars of David.
