Learn to knit a stocking that you will treasure for years to come! In this class we will be working on the Tannenbaum stocking from Melynda Bernardi’s beautiful Comfort and Joy collection. We will use this straightforward stockinette pattern to go over the construction of the stocking. We will begin with the cast on, move on to the heel flap, then work the heel and shape the toe. Once the stocking is complete, we will use Duplicate Stitch to add the design and lettering; no previous colorwork experience necessary! Students can choose from the Christmas Tree design highlighted in the pattern, from the 5 different motifs featured at the end of the Comfort and Joy book, OR get creative and chart out your own design!


Students will learn:

  • Basic sock construction
  • Basic short rows
  • Duplicate Stitch
  • Making an icord
  •
