Cabled Christmas Stocking

This is my Christmas stocking.  I made it for myself...three times.  I gave away the first two and made myself a third one a few years ago.  I promised myself that I wouldn't give this one away.  I love texture in knitting, especially cables and bobbles.  So this is the perfect stocking for me.

Here's a close up of the detail at the top.  The top piece is knit separately going the other direction and then attached to the stocking while making the I-cord, if I'm remembering correctly.  It was a bit tricky.

Here's a brief video on how to make I-cord, just in case you were wondering.


  1. That is so pretty,Kathy! And I love how the texture pops since it is all one color. Very classy.

  2. Oh, Kathy, this is so lovely! I can see why you had to give a couple away before you got to keep one for yourself. :)
