This class will work from the book Knit Christmas Stockings:  19 Patterns for Stockings & Ornaments, edited by Gwen W. Steege.  We recommend choosing one of the patterns pictured above ().  Students may also opt to work a mini stocking (p106) or any of the ornaments or other stockings n the book.  Most of the stockings in this book involve the stranded colorwork technique, but there are several lovely patterns with plain knitting, cables, or embroidery embellishment.  

Students must have a copy of the book.  Copies of the most recent edition of the book (2nd edition ©2013) are available for purchase at the shop.  Please purchase the book prior to the first day of class to assure you have a copy to use in class.  The shop will not photocopy copy written material unless it is from your own book. Students who owns a copy of the 1st edition my use it in class.

Yarn selections, needles, and pattern choices will be reviewed during the first class meeting. There will be homework knitting between class meetings. Students who do not have time to knit between classes can consider making mini stockings to learn the various techniques and most of the knitting can be done in class.
