Madras Plaid Socking in Swish

The Madras Plaid Stocking has hit the Knit Picks website! You can purchase the pattern and all the materials needed to knit up a stocking from Knit Picks. I knitted up a sample out of Knit Picks Swish Worsted. For this pattern, I changed up the needle size to be a US 8 needle. This provides a bit more drape to the stocking and allows for the stretch so you can really stuff the stocking full of goodies!

Colors used: White, Black, and Hollyberry
1 ball for the first 2 colors and 2 for the Hollyberry

There are so many colors of Swish available that you can customize the stocking to fit your holiday decorations. For a smaller version of the stocking you can use thinner yarn and drop your needle size.
