Materials you need at home:
- tapestry needle
- crochet hook size 4mm
- set of dpns matching your gauge ( 3.5-4mm/US 4-6 for the plain parts, 5-6mm /US 8-10 for two-colored sections)
- for each sock: 50g of the main color, about 10g of each contrast color
- gauge: 30rows x 23sts = 4x4inch/10x10cm in plain stockinette (knitted flat)
Gauge is not crucial here, children rather get more excited to have bigger christmas stockings. You can use every sport weight yarn of your choice or thicker. A thinner yarn would probably cause Santa trouble stuffing all the gifts into the stockings.
