This week I’m knitting a Christmas stocking and pattern.
Christmas stockings are interesting. Basically they follow sock patterns and are often knit with larger needles and thicker yarn. It can be plain or fancy.
This stocking is a top down pattern, so the toe has symmetrical decreases. Every other row is a decrease row. And each decrease row has four decreases. Two are left slanted and two right slanted.
And because the yarn is heavier than sock yarn, I decided to add the decreases to my How To Knit Videos series.
To see the left slanted decrease video, just leave a comment on this post. If you are reading this post on a site other than The Knitting Yarn, click right here now to leave your comment and see the video.
To your healthy and happy knitting & caregiving,
