Class fee: $85 – pattern provided; supplies extra
9 hours of instruction
Instructor: Michelle Hunter
Skill level: Intermediate Knit

 

Knit a personalized Christmas stocking that is sure to be a treasured heirloom! While the designs are classic, the techniques are decidedly modern.
Each stocking is knit using three colors. The class includes the pattern featuring the two designs pictured (right). Additional designs will eventually be added to the pattern, and each student is eligible for free pattern updates as they become available!
These stocking are worked toe-up and feature a short row heel. Skills covered include:
  • Fair Isle knitting
  • Two-handed/two-color knitting
  • Duplicate stitch
  • Short rows
  • Magic Loop
  • Judy’s magic cast on
  • Yarn management
  • Chart reading
  • Expert finishing skills and more!
While previous sock knitting experience is not required, students must be familiar with knitting in the round, experienced with simple increases and decreases, and have a basic understanding of the Magic Loop technique. Upon completion of the series, all students will have the knowledge to knit a toe-up sock of their choosing.
