Mini Christmas Stockings...

So, I made some really neat christmas decorations for the swap using my most wonderful sewing machine, when I had a duh moment. They weren't exactly "handmade", which was a requirement of the swap. Aaargh! So I went back to the drawing board and wrote a knitting pattern for these wee christmas stockings. I love how they turned out, and these as well as the other sewn ornaments will be winging their way to my swap partners... I'll post a pic of the little "owlaments" as soon as I get confirmation that they've been recieved. :)

An early christmas present for you, my wonderful blog readers;

Mini Christmas Stockings

Cast on 20 stitches onto four 3mm double pointed needles (7,7,6) using worsted weight cotton yarn. I used Anchor Magicline which is a self striping yarn, hence the randomness of colour on the little stockings... :) I like random!

Row 1: K
Row 2: P

Knit 16 rows.

Shape heel;
Row 1: K12, turn
Row 2: P4, turn
Row 3: K6, turn
Row 4: P8, turn
Row 5: K10, turn
Row 6: P12, turn
Row 7: K14, turn
Row 8: P16, turn
Row 9: K to end of round.

K 7 more rows and then shape the toe;
Row 1: (K2 tog) to end of round (10 stitches)
Row 2: (K2 tog) to end of round (5 stitches)

Break off the yarn and thread through the 5 stitches you have remaining. Weave in the ends of yarn to finish.

Enjoy!

Those are really cute! But I would consider something you've sewn to be handmade as well. But I do love this pattern and thanks for sharing!
