Christmas Stocking for Ellie:

Toe up construction,worked in the round with DK/Light Worsted yarn on size 4.00 mm needles. Rowan Pure New Wool in Avocado, Kiss and Snow. CAM02438

Using Jeny’s Magic Cast On, cast on 20 stitches, 10 on each needle. Increase, using K1fb’s as you would for a normal sock toe until you have the desired width. Continue to knit straight, in the round, using your chosen fair-isle or intarsia patterns until the foot measures approximately 4.5 inches from the cast on. Knit across half of the stitches with waste yarn in a contrast colour, (this will be where you place your afterthought heel), then slip the stitches back to the start of your needle and continue working the leg of the stocking in the same way as the foot until you are happy with the length and add a few rows of ribbing in your chosen design. I used K1, P1 single rib. Add your heel.  I worked my heel by working alternate stitches in red and green, but it would look good plain too. Decorate as required…I added pom-poms on skinny knitted icords, tied into a bow, a slightly thicker short icord sewn to the inner back to form a loop for hanging and then hand embroidered her name in a darker green which I embellished with red and green stitches on top, to resemble candy canes.

Afghans were both worked using 4.50 mm crochet hook and a mixture of Aran/Worsted and DK yarns. Granny square blanket was made using a join as you go method.
