If you've never worked in the round on double-pointed needles before, this is a great place to start! The stocking is huge and loosely knit to prepare for fulling. You will learn how to knit a simple fairisle design on the stocking cuff, the short-row heel, and a paired-decreases toe - which will prepare you for knitting "real socks" in the future!
