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,
