  2. What timing. I just started to try my hand at knitting after learning the Knit and pearl stitch.
    I've gotten as far as K2tog. After I break the yarn off and pull it through the stitches on my hook, do I
    sew up the side seam going into both V's on each side?

    Thanks so much ---wow my first project in knitting. I may be hooked :)

    1. If your first ever knitting project is a stocking then you have done amazingly well!
      And yes - sew up the side seam catching the V on each side, making sure any stripes match up.
      I hope you had fun - and let me warn you - making these is ADDICTIVE! Best wishes. M

  13. Thank you for this simple and easy way to knit Tiny Stockings.
    My Christmas tree and some hospitals will be getting donations of these stockings for the newborns First Christmas.
    Now I wished that Adult Socks could be made this way as well. Any hints?
