St Peter Port Stocking is a pattern included in our 2018 Red Scarf scholarship fundraiser! All proceeds from the sale of this pattern through December 31, 2018 will go directly to our scholarship in partnership with Foster Care to Success. You can learn more about Foster Care to Success here. Our Red Scarf scholarship patterns are knit in our Bare Naked Wools Festivus yarn in the colorway Cranberry Crush. A portion of yarn sales go directly to the scholarship.
This handsome stocking captures the magic of Christmas Past, illustrated by a mix of traditional seaman’s Gansey textures. From the top of its cuff to the tip of its toe, it will delight the knitter with ever-changing knit/purl patterns and lush cable details. While the overall effect is deliciously complex, the stitchwork is quite simple in a straightforward sock construction with both written and charted instructions. This project will fill that need for a final, festive quick knit to sit back and enjoy while getting your holiday spirit on.
