Intro to the Christmas Stocking Crochet Along is here.
Part One is here.
How’s it going so far? Do you have a nice straight tube for your leg? Ready for some heel-turning fun?
If you’d like to use a contrasting color for your heel and toe, now’s the time to make that decision. If you want to keep the heel the same color, that’s no problem. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to customize your stocking in other ways.
Scroll down for video how-to help, and comment/ask questions below. We’d all love to see your pictures of stockings-in-progress: Post them to my Facebook page.
