Stocking Ornament

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


20 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Knit Stocking Ornaments Reviewed by anne victory on 2008-11-24 **
I tried it last night and had a little didn't quite turn out. I enjoyed the bobble part, but the stocking part did not turn out. I'll try it again and see what I did wrong.
