Create a festive Christmas stocking this year with Nancy Vandivert's expert help! Join us on Wednesday afternoons and learn how to knit your choice of two stockings. The Cardo Christmas Stocking is a classic design that is the perfect canvas for adding your own twist- add stripes, colorwork, cables, embroidery or leave it as is! The Chunky Knit Christmas Stocking boasts festive colorwork for a traditional fair-isle stocking.
No matter which you choose, you'll learn all the tools you need to create heirloom stockings for you and your loved ones.
An added bonus? You'll learn to knit a sock without having to worry about size or knitting a second one! :)
