Sparkly Stocking

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice® - Bonbons - Romance®

GAUGE:

12 sc + 14 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm).

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. Stocking leg is worked in continuous rnds (spiral) beg at top of leg.
2. Leg is worked with 2 strands of yarn held tog - 1 strand of A and 1 strand of Bonbons (C). When working with C, use colors as desired. To change color when working leg, cut the strand of C leaving a long yarn tail to weave in later. Leaving a long beg tail, pick up a new strand of C and hold it tog with the strand of A.
3. Heel is worked with a single strand of yarn. Foot is worked with a single strand of yarn to last 4 rnds which are worked with 3 strands held tog. To change color when working heel and foot, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st. Proceed with new color.
4. Heel is worked in rows.
5. If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a rnd, as follows: With 1 strand each of A and C held tog and leaving a long beg tail, ch 37, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 36 sts at the end of this row. Proceed to Rnd 2 and work first st of Rnd 2 into first st of Row 1. Use beg tail to sew gap at base of first row closed.


STOCKING
Leg

With 1 strand each of A and C held tog, ch 36.
Taking care not to twist ch, join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 1, sc in same st as joining and in each ch around; do not join, work in continuous rnds (spiral) - 36 sc at the end of this rnd. Place marker for beg of rnd. Move marker up as each rnd is completed.

Change to a new color of C.

Rep last rnd until piece measures 15 in. (38 cm) from beg.
Shape Heel
Note:
In Rows 2 and 3 of heel shaping, 6 sts are left unworked at the end of each row. On Row 4 of the heel shaping, you will work across the same 6 sts worked on Row 3, then sc into the next sc of the row below (this is one of the 6 sts left unworked in Rows 2 and 3). This will add one st to the heel for a total of 7 sts for the heel. Continue to repeat Row 4, adding one st at the end of each row by working 1 of the unworked sts in the row below until you have worked into all of the 18 heel sts.
Change to 1 strand of B. Fasten off A.
Row 1 (WS): With B, ch 1, turn, sc in first 18 sts for heel; leave rem sts unworked for top of foot (instep).
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 12 sts; leave rem sts unworked.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 6 sts; leave rem sts unworked.
Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across, sc in next (unworked) st of row below - 7 sts.
Rows 5-15: Rep Row 4, working 1 more unworked st of row below in each row - 18 sts at the end of Row 15.
Shape Foot
Note:
Work now continues in the round for the foot.
On Rnd 1 of the foot, you will work over the 18 sts of the heel, then sl st into the side edge of the heel, work the 18 instep sts, and sl st into the other side edge of the heel, to prepare to work in the round again.
Change to 1 strand of A.
Fasten off B.
Rnd 1 (RS): With A, ch 1, turn, sc in each of the 18 heels sts, sl st in side edge of heel, sc in next 18 instep sts, sl st in side edge of heel; do not join, work in continuous rnds (spiral) - 36 sc and 2 sl sts.
Rnd 2: Sc in next 18 sts, sk next sl st, sc2tog, sc in next 14 sts, sc2tog, sk last sl st - 34 sc.
Rnds 3-6: Sc in each st around.
Change to 3 strands of C held tog. Fasten off A.
Rnds 7-10: With 3 strands of C held tog, sc in each st around.
Change to 1 strand of A. Fasten off all strands of C.
Rnds 11-14: With A, sc in each st around.
Shape Toe
Change to B. Fasten off A.
Remove beg of rnd marker. Flatten end of foot and place a marker between the sts at center top and another marker between the sts at center bottom of foot. Note: You may find it easier to use a piece of scrap yarn instead of stitch markers to easily place the markers between sts instead of in the sts.
Toe Spiral: With B, *sc in each st to 2 sts before next marker, (sc2tog) twice, move marker between the 2 sc2tog just made; rep from * working around and around until only 8 sts rem, sl st in next sc.
Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread the yarn tail through the rem 8 sts and pull to close opening. Knot securely.

FINISHING
Pom-pom

With 2 strands of C held tog and following package directions, make a small pom-pom. Tie pom-pom to toe.
Trim
Cut 2 strands of D, about 24 in. (61 cm) long.
Hold D strands together, and weave in and out of the sts around the top edge of the Stocking. Knot ends of D strands and trim. Rep trim around Stocking about halfway down leg, then a few inches (cms) above heel.
Hanging Loop
Join B with a sl st a top back edge of Stocking. Make a ch about 6 in. (15 cm) long. Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, then sl st back into Stocking close to beg of ch.
Weave in ends.
