Christmas and plaid pair up to offer a classy holiday decoration in the Madras Plaid Stocking. This generous-sized stocking is knitted in the round using a stranded charted pattern. The i-cord top gives the stocking a top finishing and the stitches are picked up from the cord and worked down in pattern. Making the heel flap, heel turn, and toe is a snap in the featured one-color areas of the stocking. You will love making a Madras Plaid Stocking for your loved ones and it makes the perfect addition to your holiday celebrations and décor.
