Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green. I'm going to show you how to do a simple Christmas stocking on one needle, one needle with two ends. What you'll need is two ounces of worsted white yarn, the brand does not matter, size six knitting needles. In order to prevent holes between the stitches that you work and the stitches that you leave unworked, you do what's called a wrap and turn. You're going to slip the first stitch, knit nine, now to do the wrap and turn, bring the yarn to the front, slip the next stitch from the left needle to the right, take your yarn back around to the back and put the stitch back on the left hand needle. You then purl back all the way to the end. Now, these nine stitches have been worked two more times, they have two more rows worked than the stitches over here. You can already see this is beginning to be a little longer. You've got a wedge of extra rows forming. The next row then I would slip the first one and knit eight this time. You keep doing that until you have all of the extra stitches or all of the stitches worked. Here's my first wrap stitch. So I'm going to pick that yarn up that I wrapped the stitch, wrapped around the stitch, put it back on the left hand needle and I'm going to knit it together with the stitch and work all the way to the other end of the row and you're going to do the same thing on this side only you are going to do your wrap and turns on the purl. When you get your heel turned, when both the knits in the purl, wrap and turn are done, short rows, then you continue in stockinette for another four inches for our foot part and do knit two together and SSK decreases for the toe. You seam the foot and up the side or the back of the stocking and then fold the toe with the front back together and seam the front and back. So you've got one basic stocking and two versions looks like three entirely different stockings. You can find he detailed instructions for this stocking at Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
