"Please knit a Christmas stocking for Eli", read the note from Santa. What a pleasant assignment: knit for someone you love, and knit only a single stocking. This one is worked from the top down, with a centre-back "seam" stitch. Since the motifs have different repeats, the leftover sts are mirror-imaged each side of the back "seam".
An excellent first fair isle project, this stocking measures 15" from top to heel and another 12" from heel to toe. Meg Swansen also offers an option for a surprise pocket.
This stocking is knit with Jamieson & Smith's 2-ply Jumper Weight 100% Shetland wool.
