Wee Winter Woolens KAL: Wee Chevron Stocking

Oh, you all did a fabulous job with the Wee Pompom Beanie. All the multiples and different colors were just great. This week we are moving down from the head to the toes with the Wee Chevron Stocking. Download the Wee Chevron Stocking Pattern or check your Ravelry library for an update if you purchased it there.

This little stocking is knit with an afterthought heel which means you place scrap yarn where the heel will go while you are working the rest of the stocking. (Just like doing an afterthought thumb on mittens.) After the stocking is knit, you will pick up the stitches on either side of the scrap yarn and basically knit another toe. Here is a Dummies tutorial that may help if you’ve never worked an afterthought before. I think it is a lot easier than turning a heel, especially at this size!

One thing to be aware of when knitting this stocking is that the beginning/end of the rounds will be in the middle of one side of the stocking. I used the jogless striping method to make that area almost invisible.

I also hang that side to the back.
