Project: Spindleknitter's Stocking
The designer says, 'I’m posting these charts and some basic instructions in hopes that knitters who enjoy color-work will have some fun with them. I recommend them to anyone who knows how to knit a sock and how to knit with two or more yarns at at time.' We'll break the pattern down, improvise and learn new edgings and fun textural techniques. Learn to chart your own fair isle design elements!
