Pattern Testing

Yesterday I decided to try a new technique I saw on KnitandCrochetToday (on PBS Create) to change colors in a pattern.  Well, I don't have my own pattern so I decided to try making a simple design on my own:  A red stocking on a white background.  Easy, right?  Eh...

This is 10 rows in & 45 minutes after starting... only half done.  I'll definitely be using this to block a better pattern from it later.  If I ever get up the courage to try it again, haha.

The finished stocking cloth!:

It resembles a crunched "J" rather than a stocking.  The technique is cool, but I don't think I'll be listing lots of this design for a while.  At least not this year.  Maybe I can perfect the pattern for next year.

  1. It's cute, I think it looks like a stocking!! It looks like it would be hard to do too!

  2. Definitely tricking. I think I would be able to get the hang of it fairly quickly, but I'm not sure how much I'd enjoy following this complex (to me) pattern. Thanks for your encouragement :) I still think it looks more like a weird "J" lol.
