This is a pattern for both a cat and a dog Christmas stocking with a detailed, 10 page instruction how to cast on, turn the heel and shape the toe. A basic understanding of fair isle knitting and knitting on double point needles is an advantage. I would rate this pattern as intermediate to advanced. The pattern contains lots of photographs and the charts for both stockings.
The pattern also contains an alphabet chart and instructions how to add a name to the top of the stocking to make it a personalized Christmas stocking.
Kids and cat or dog lovers might prefer these patterns to more traditional Christmas patterns.
Size: 6.5” (16cm) wide, 20” (51cm) long
21 sts wide x 26 sts high over 4x4” (10x10cm)
Other yarn can be used, size will vary.
You may sell items made from this pattern (they sell really well!), but please don't sell the pattern itself.
This is a very satisfying project that looks amazing (I get many compliments), but it's actually not too difficult and quick to knit once you get the hang of it. I'm around to answer questions if you're stuck.
