Striped Colorburst Stocking

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

GAUGE:

14 sc + 15 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) with smaller hook.

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. Leg of Stocking is worked in continuous rnds (spiral) beg at top of leg. Heel is worked at end of leg and has a cup shape.
2. To change color, 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.
3. When instructed to work with C, use colors as desired.
4. Heel is worked in rows and begins by working over 20 sts - one half of the total leg sts. The remaining 20 sts are the top of foot (instep) sts.
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 smaller hook and A, leaving a long beg tail, ch 41, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 40 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 yarn tail to sew gap at base of first row closed.


STOCKING
Leg

With smaller hook and A, ch 40. 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) - 40 sc at the end of this rnd. Place marker for beg of rnd.
Move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnds 2-15: Sc in each st around. Change to B.
Rnds 16-30: With B, sc in each st around. Change to A.
Rnds 31-45: With A, sc in each st around. Change to B.
Rnds 46-58: With B, sc in each st around. Change to 2 strands of C held tog.
Rnds 59 and 60: With 2 strands of C held tog, sc in each st around.
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 8 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 9 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 20 heel sts.

Change to A. Fasten off both strands of C.
Row 1 (WS): With A, ch 1, turn, sc in first 20 sts for heel; leave rem sts unworked for top of foot (instep).
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 14 sts; leave rem sts unworked.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 8 sts; leave rem sts unworked.
Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across, sc in next (unworked) st from row below - 9 sts.
Rows 5-15: Rep Row 4, working 1 more unworked st from row below in each row - 20 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 20 heel sts, then sl st into the side edge of the heel, work the 20 instep sts, and sl st into the other side edge of the heel, to prepare to work in the round again.

Change to B. Fasten off A. Place marker for beg of rnd.
Move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 1 (RS): With B, ch 1, turn, sc in each of the 20 heels sts, sl st in side edge of heel, sc in next 20 instep sts, sl st in side edge of heel; do not join, work in continuous rnds (spiral) - 40 sc and 2 sl sts.
Rnd 2: Sc in next 20 sts, sk next sl st, sc2tog, sc in next 16 sts, sc2tog, sk last sl st - 38 sc.
Rnds 3-14: Sc in each st around. Change to 2 strands of C held tog.
Rnds 15 and 16: With 2 strands of C held tog, sc in each st around.
Shape Toe
Change to A. Fasten off both strands of C.
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 A, *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 yarn tail through the rem 8 sts and pull to close opening. Knot securely.

CUFF
With larger hook and D, ch 27. Taking care not to twist ch, join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in same ch as joining and in each ch around; do not join, work in continuous rnds (spiral) - 27 sc. Place marker for beg of rnd. Move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 2: Sc in each sc around.
Rep Rnd 2 until piece measures 1 1/2 in. (4 cm). Fasten off.

BIG DOTS (make as many as desired)
With smaller hook and 1 strand of C, ch 4; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, work 6 sc in ring; join with sl st in first sc - 6 sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc - 12 sc.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc; rep from * 5 more times; join with sl st in first sc - 18 sc.
Fasten off.

SMALL DOT (make as many as desired)
Make same as Big Dot through Rnd 2 - 12 sc.
Fasten off.

FINISHING
With sewing needle and thread, sew Cuff to top of Stocking, then sew Dots to Stocking, placing as desired.
Hanging Loop
With smaller hook, join B with a sl st at top back edge of Stocking. Make a ch about 6 in. (15cm) long. Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, then sl st back into Stocking close to beg of ch. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
