What It's All About
When it comes to knitters, decorating the tree wouldn't be complete without a pair of mini stockings! These little socks are just big enough to hold a small candy cane or a candy roll. And it's a great way to finish up small amounts of fingering weight yarn. Working on double pointed needles, or two circulars, you'll knit in the round, work left- and right-slanting decreases, turn the heel and shape the gusset. You'll finish off the toe by gathering stitches and you'll finish off the lesson by weaving in your ends.
Participants should know how to knit in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), two circulars or magic loop.
Pre-Work: Let's Get Started!
Cast on 24 sts and arrange evenly over 3 dpns (e.g. 8sts/8sts/8sts).
Cuff: Join in the round being careful not to twist your sts and work 10 rnds in 1x1 rib (*k1, p1, rep from * to end of rnd). When possible, attach a stitch marker to indicate the beginning of the round.
- your pre-work
- one set of 2.5 or 2.75mm knitting needles for working small circumferences: your choice of double pointed needles (set of four), two circulars or one long circular for magic loop.
- a small amount (5g) of fingering weight yarn (a perfect way to use a mini skein).
- a stitch marker and tapestry needle
- River City Yarn's Mini Stocking pattern (available as an electronic download with your registration)
- three hours of instruction (and the start of a fun, new tradition)!
