Pottery Barn Inspired Cable Stocking...

As most of you know, I work at the LYS.  In early November, the owner of the shop brought in two Chunky Knit Christmas Stockings she purchased at Pottery Barn {she is a huge PB fan}.  She thought it would be fun to create a pattern similar to the stockings.  Good friend and coworker, Mary and I studied the stockings.  We made notes and I took them home and began prototyping.  I tested several different yarns, heels, and toes.  Here is what I came up with.

Using Lamb's Pride Bulky and a US 10.5 16" circular needle, these stocking go together quite quickly.  And they can be made for less than half the PB price.

As you can see these stockings were hurried off to the shop before being blocked.  (And my photo taking skills have not improved in 2013!) 

My pattern is available here on Ravelry. 

It is Christmas Eve.  Next week is the perfect time to get started on next year's Christmas knitting!
