Christmas Stocking

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

20 sts + 28 rows = 4" (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.

Christmas Stocking Reviewed by Connie Schrand on 2012-01-15 *****
Made these for my granddaughter and her husband the first year they were married. The next year had to make another one for their dog. Then their first baby came along and had to make another one. Here we are making the fourth one. They love them and the pattern looks great! The dog's stocking was done in cream, brown and black.
