Join the Southwest Stockings Knit Along in your yarn store! I'll be hosting this instructional knit-along on our main blog, posting regularly on Instagram, and in our Ravelry group. The knit along is based on my appearance on The Knit Show with Vickie Howell where I taught how to make the Southwest Stockings.
The Southwest Stockings pattern can either make a Christmas stocking in Ewe Ewe Baa Baa Bulky merino OR cozy socks using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted. It's a great project for a knitting group and I'd love to have your shop join me!
The Southwest Stockings are a design that is unique to Ewe Ewe Yarns. Using the same pattern you can make two very different items! The secret's in the yarn. Use Baa Baa Bulky to create a big bright Christmas stocking OR change to a smaller needle size and Wooly Worsted yarn to a squishy pair of socks for yourself. It's super fun!
