Mar 12, 2014
Lace Stockings by Faina Goberstein

Faina Goberstein' Lace Stockings are stunning. Published in the book The Art of Seamless Knitting, these vintage-inspired and romantic stockings are trending!

Knit along with Faina while she shows you how to make these knit socks! We're hosting a knit-along over at Craft University, starting on March 31 and ending April 20.

We're calling this a knit-along, but it'll be a lot like an online class. Here are some of the things you'll learn from Faina:

  • Reading a chart
  • Knitting a swatch
  • Working the dewdrop cast-on
  • Joining to work in the round
  • Working in the round with your chosen method: double pointed needles, one, or two circular needles (all three will be discussed)
  • Working with elastic thread
  • Working the six stitch patterns used in this project
  • Turning a heel
  • Picking up stitches
  • Working attractive decreases
  • Closing the toe

Knit Lace Stockings by Faina Goberstein     
That's lots of learning, and you'll end up with a pair of one-of-a-kind heirloom lace stockings! And many of these skills will apply not only to socks, but  to many of your current and future knitting projects.

Everyone is welcome to knit along. Whether you're a seasoned sock knitter, a brave beginner, or anywhere in between, there will be something for you to learn. You'll be able to work at your own pace or follow posted lessons; Faina will be there to walk you through all the steps of making the lace stockings, and she'll be available to answer your questions as you go along.

We've kitted up the Seamless Lace Stockings, but the kits are going fast so get yours ASAP. You can also get the pattern in Faina's book, The Art of Seamless Knitting.

And sign up for our Seamless Lace Knit-Along today! I know you can't wait to get started on these beautiful stockings.
