Rajut Free Knitting Pattern : Stranded Christmas Stocking

I made this Christmas stocking knitting pattern, inspired from [this] beautiful free knitting pattern.
For the motives, i took from my library collections of stranded-knitting projects.

  • Skill needed : know basic knitting, work in round a small circular project, follow stranded knitting chart, pick up and knit
  • Abreviations : DPN = Double Pointed Needle, CO = cast on, sts = stitch, stst = stockinette = knit all round, SSK = slip, slip, knit, K2Tog = knit 2 stitch together, kitchener stitch = seaming 2 part of life stitch together. (you can see how to do it [here] or by browse at google and youtube)
  • Material : any yarn that suitable for 4 mm DPN (see your yarn label) - Tips : You can use left over of your last project. I only need about 50gr of Red and 50gr of Green also a tiny bit of White SP Poyeng to made 3 socks!
  • Needle : set of 5 DPN 4 mm or use 23 cm circular needle 4 mm (one of some brand that made this size of circular is Clover)
  • Gauge : not so important since this is a home decoration
  • Finished size : mine were about 20 cm height from top edge to heels.

    1. Great pattern but I find the heel instructions very confusing. This is my second time knitting socks.

      When I reach the part where I knit 20 sts of the heel, do I continue with the heel instructions at the bottom of the pattern and go back to the main part afterwards?


      1. when you try the pattern, you will find that the heel instruction i wrote at the bottom is being work after other part is done (the socks is finished except for the heel-part only) ^ ^
