This knitting pattern for 2 Christmas stockings with kittens in fair isle design contains a detailed, 10 page instruction how to cast on, turn the heel and shape the toe. A basic understanding of fair isle/ stranded 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.
One stocking features two playing/ fighting kittens, the other one features kittens playing with a ball. Kids might prefer this kind of stocking to the traditional Christmas ones. The colour combination gives these stockings a vintage look.
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.
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.
