Sweet little decorative mini socks. Great for hanging on the tree and stuffing with tiny treats.
The socks are knitted from the top down with a short row heel and stranded colourwork elements.
The finished stockings measure 10cm/4″ long from cuff to toe, and are 4cm/11⁄2″ wide above the heel.
2 colours of an even 4ply/ fingering weight yarn with approximately 320 metres/350 yards per 100g. For each stocking you will need less than 18 metres/20 yards each of MC and CC.
The pictured samples were made with Baa Ram Ewe ‘Titus’ in the Wesley Bob and
White Rose shades.
