miss autumn's stocking...

my friend, donna, owner of monkey moo moo, wants a christmas stocking for her adorable daughter miss autumn...


so...over the next few days, i will be knitting 
this simple striped stocking

in yummy berroco ultra alpaca
(which i bought, of course, from my local yarn shop)

why don't you join me?
grab a couple skeins of lovely wool in two or three (or four or five or...) colors,
a size 16" circular

and 

follow me as I knit a
stocking for autumn 

you'll be glad you did

  2. I love this pattern & am thinking of using it for my son's stocking! He will turn one the day after Christmas : ) The pattern is so jolly, but I love that it's simple! I may just get it done on time!! : ) I really like the star that you added at the end, but am not sure how to go about making it. Any tips?! Thank you!!

    1. Hi Amanda! The star is a garter-stitch star, based one from The Knitter's Almanac by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I knit it at a very tight gauge. You can also find step-by-step instructions for that very star in my pattern, A STAR FOR BABY, on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/a-star-for-baby

      Happy knitting!
