I've wanted to knit these tiny Christmas stockings by Little Cotton Rabbits for the last two years but I was too intimidated and I only learned stranded knitting about a year ago.
I followed the pattern to knit these flat but wasn't entirely happy with how my stranded knitting was turning out. I decided to learn to purl continental and that improved their appearance to some degree but the stitches near the edge still weren't uniform. I decided to look for some instructions on knitting these in the round and found some modifications by gooseknits on Ravelry that were very helpful. I think I prefer the look of them in the round.
You need to knit these! Watch out because they are addictive.
