Socks are a great option, but if you have never knitted a pair before they might seem a bit daunting with terms like ‘turning the heel’ never mind all those double pointed needles.
Well, we may just have the answer with our Christmas stocking pattern – a FREE download for you! There are five designs and we have knitted each one in three different colourways using a palette of festive shades in our Fine Merino 4 ply, including Bottle, Rouge, Cream, Burnt Sienna and Cobalt.
The beauty of this pattern is it takes you through all the techniques you need to learn to knit socks from knitting the heel flap, shaping or turning the heel, picking up stitches for the gusset and shaping the toe. By the time you have knitted a few for your Christmas tree you will be quite the expert. And they are just the right size to hold a little chocolate treat. Our cute little stockings would also make great gift tags or you could make an entire advent calendar – something you could enjoy every year.
You can find the pattern for these cute stockings here and just five balls of our Fine Merino 4 ply, in all the colours listed above, will make fifteen stockings!
We are also offering three lucky winners the chance to win all five balls to make all of the stockings. Follow the link below to enter. The giveaway will end at midnight on the 23rd of November and the winners will be announced on the 27th.
