In this three-session course, Brenna will help you master all the skills you need to knit a customized holiday stocking for everyone you know. These stockings are knit toe-up with a solid colored toe and heel, working the body and then the colorful top portion. In the first class, you will begin knitting the toe of the stocking. You will then knit the body of the stocking on our own and come back for the second class to work on the top of the stocking. The third class will teach the afterthought heel and other finishing techniques.
