Solid Colour Stocking Pattern: Step 1

This pattern is worked in rounds joining each round with a slip stitch. Sometimes the slip stitch is worked as a normal slip stitch and sometimes it is worked into the back loop only, this will be indicated on the pattern for each round.

Use the stitch marker as guided below to mark the start of each round. Once you reach the stitch marker you will be instructed to slip stitch into the marked stitch. At this point you can remove the stitch marker ready to mark your first stitch of the next round. The solid colour pattern uses 2 colours called yarn A and B.

Solid Colour Stocking Pattern: Step 2 (toe)

Using yarn A, make a magic loop.

Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as stitch), 6DC into loop, close loop and slip stitch into first DC (6 stitches)

Round 2: 2HTC in each stitch round marking first HTC with a stitch marker. At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker (12 stitches)

Round 3: 2HTC in next stitch marking first HTC with a stitch marker. 1 HTC in next stitch. Repeat *2HTC, 1HTC* 5 more times to complete round. At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker (18 stitches)

Round 4: 1 HTC in each stitch round marking first HTC with stitch marker. At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker (18 stitches)

Rounds 5 – 7: Repeat Round 4 three more times. Remove hook and insert stitch marker to keep stitch secure. You will pick this stitch up later to continue working in rounds so don't cut the yarn.
