Fiber Trends Pattern FT204
Knit either the classic stripe or sheep design stocking in worsted weight wool.
Design by Nancie M. Wiseman
Sizes: If made in worsted weight yarn, stockings will measure about 17" (43cm) long and 7" (18cm) wide.
Yarn Requirements: Choose a worsted weight wool or other natural fiber that will felt easily.
Striped stocking, 200 yards (183m) of main color and 100 yards (91m) of contrast.
Sheep stocking, 200 yards (183m) of main color and 100 yards (91m) of sheep color plus a small amount of black for feet, ears, face and tail.
Caution: Many white and natural wools do not felt well.
The felting process may cause some dye migration and almost always results in some 'fuzz transfer', so keep this in mind when choosing colors. Test felt a sample of colors together before starting.
Needles: 16" (40cm) circular and a set of double pointed needles in US size 10.5 (6.5mm).
