I am doing endless hats and mittens for Christmas (12 sets to be exact) and in a knitting frenzy. Dedided to take a break to knit a stocking. This pattern is “Falling Snow Stocking” (free on Ravelry) and made with Lamb’s Pride Bulky. Although the pattern called for bulky yarn, I don’t think they intended it to be quite as bulky as LPB so the stocking came out HUGE.
I decided to felt it and I think it’s pretty neat. The pattern design is a bit blurred in the felting process and it looks like the colors ran but actually its the fuzzy red yarn obscuring the whit. Once dry I’m going to take a sweater defuzzer to it and I think it will remove some of the red hairs and make the pattern a bit clearer.
The first picture is before and the second after felting.
