Here is the last stocking in the Collection ------ it is called Stripes Both Ways. It features a two color garter stitch border. You sew the cast on and bind off edges together and then pick up and work it down traditionally.
The pattern is ready for sale NOW. Here are the specifics.... Kristin's Colorful Christmas Stockings includes five different designs. Each is a colorful design but is knit with only color in a row or round. Two of the stockings combine back and forth and circular knitting. There is one very simple cable pattern and one more advanced cable pattern. There is also one very easy striped version. Here's the cover of the pattern.
If you are new to knitting stockings, Kristin's Colorful Christmas Stockings is a great choice for you. You'll be able to increase your knitting skills as you work your way through the collection. My friend Cathy Payson, who helped me with the tech proofing, told me this is going to be her "go-to" stocking pattern now. Stockings make a great wedding or shower gift. They make nice baby gifts too. Or a housewarming gift. It's nice to build up a stock-pile to have as gifts.
The beautiful yarn I used in the lovely color range is my Color By Kristin distributed by Classic Elite Yarns. Here they all are hanging on our barn.
Here's some more great news - I've started a Kristin Nicholas Knitalong over on Ravelry. Come join in the fun during this Gift Knitting Season.
