Today started with a surprise. We had been told on the radio and by the different internet weather services that we should expect a rain and snow mix and not a lot. We got more than expected and I got an afternoon off work. Not too bad. I got to work on the Tunisian Crochet Stocking I'm designing for my prayer shawl group. Win-Win all around.
The pattern will follow.
I checked the weather again and discovered more to come for Tuesday and Saturday. Fun for some, not so much for others. But I know I will be getting in more design time and finish some projects.
Tunisian Christmas Stocking Part 1
8 oz worsted weight yarn (either one skein 8 oz. or 2 4 oz skeins in different colors)
2 oz worsted weight yarn for heel and toe, optional
Size US H hook, double ended Tunisian or cro hook
Ch 60. Join with a sl st in first ch. Be careful not to twist before joining.
R1a: Working in the back loop of the chain, pick up a loop for each ch. You will only get part way around.
R1b: Join either the other end or the other color. With the other end of the hook, ch 1 through the end loop. Now wrap the yarn around the hook and draw through the horizontal loop just created and the next vertical bar. repeat this step until there are 3 or 4 loops on the hook and go back to R1a.
Continue in this manner around until the leg is 10 - 12 inches long from the beginning. Stay tuned for the next installment.
