Item details

This is a knitting pattern for polka dot and stripes socks. The socks are knitted using the fair isle technique (stranded knitting).

The material to be used is sock yarn in solid colours, leftovers can be used. You need 3.0mm double pointed needles (US 2)

The size is a woman's medium, but the pattern can easily be repeated to fit bigger feet, or reduced to fit smaller feet.

You may sell items made from this pattern, but please don't sell the pattern itself.

This is not a difficult fair isle project, but it's an advantage to know how to knit fair isle. Detailed instructions including photographs are included on how to cast on, knit the heel and shape the toe.

If you have any questions, I'm happy to to help!

File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.

Payments

I accept Paypal and Direct Checkout. Items will be shipped once payment has cleared (unless a custom order has to be made first). Payment in advance must be made for personalized Christmas Stockings.


Returns & exchanges

If you are not happy with your purchase I will take items back in return for the purchase price except for personalized Christmas stockings: I start knitting at the top and cannot sell these to anyone else. I will send lots of photos during the knitting process to ensure the personalized Christmas stockings are as requested, however once shipped I cannot take them back.


Additional policies

I accept and welcome custom orders. Turnaround time for custom orders varies a lot. I recommend ordering early to make sure your personalized Christmas Stockings are planned, knitted, shipped and arrive in time for Christmas. If I get as many orders as I can reasonably handle, I will no longer accept custom orders (this usually happens at some point in October). I send photos after each stocking is finished. Check out my facebook page where I show off my finished stockings.

Questions for buyers of Christmas Stockings:
1. What is the name and which main pattern (reindeer, snowmen etc.) and which colours should go with the name?
2. Acrylic or Pure wool?
Acrylic is easy to care for, it stretches to hold lots of goodies, most stockings previously knitted are acrylic, stockings can be washed in the washing machine, lots of colours to choose from.
Pure wool is thicker and stockings turn out larger. The stockings have to be stored in a plastic bag or container and should be hand washed in cold water and dried flat. There are 16 colours to choose from, the wool is slightly speckled.
3. What size would you prefer? Does it have to be no longer than a certain length? Usually stockings will be about 22" long, 6" wide. If the name is longer than 7 characters, the top will be wider to accommodate the names. If you're ordering a set, the tops will be matched to the widest name. I can make the rest of the stocking wider to accommodate a long name, but then it would be shorter.
4. As you are looking at the stocking hung up, should the toe be pointing to the right (shaped like this: L) or to the left, shaped like this: J? The name will be on both sides, but it's nicer if the reindeer "walk" into the same direction as the toe is pointing.
5. If you are ordering a set of several stockings, would you like the smaller patterns be all the same, all different or a mix of same and different ones?

6. Would you like to choose the smaller patterns or can I do it as I knit? There are limitations to what can and can't be done. It's easiest if you let me know if there are any patterns that you don't like at all and some that you particularly like and want included.
7. Do you need the loop at the top to be a certain length? I usually make it 2.5" up, but can make it bigger or smaller.
8. If your stocking has a reindeer as the main pattern, would you like one of them to get a little red nose?
9. Any other special requests, just let me know :)
