Pull a loop through the 2 stitches. Drop the 2 stitches from the left needle.

Slip another stitch knitwise from the left to the right needle. Return the slipped stitches in their twisted position back to the left hand needle.

Chart for the Knit Stocking Leg

Ribbing Cuff of the Knit Stocking

Rnd 1: With Color B (or your color of choice), k1, p1; repeat from * to * around.
Repeats: Work ribbing until the cuff measures 4 inches or 6 inches, depending on the desired
height of the cuff.

Heel of the Knit Stocking

Rnd 1: Place held stitches back on needles, (22 sts along the top of the heel and 22 sts along the
bottom of the heel). If there is a gap on each side of the heel we can use our tail end to close those up later. 44 sts

Rnd 2: (ssk, k18, k2tog) two times. 40 sts

Rnd 3:
(ssk, k16, k2tog) two times. 36 sts

Rnd 4: (ssk, k14, k2tog) two times. 32 sts

Rnd 5: (ssk, k12, k2tog) two times. 28 sts

Rnd 6: (ssk, k10, k2tog) two times. 24 sts

Rnd 7: (ssk, k8, k2tog) two times. 20 sts

Rnd 8: (ssk, k6, k2tog) two times. 16 sts

Rnd 9: Knit. 16 sts


Fasten off, leaving enough tail length for closing the opening. Place your tapestry needle
on the tail end and slip the remaining stitches to the tapestry needle. Pull to close the
opening and weave in the end. Fasten off the remaining tail.

Finishing the Knit Stocking

Use a strip of leather and a leather punch to create a strap and stitch to the top of the stocking. (see video)
Or create an i-cord.
