Super Cabled Christmas Stocking

The Super Cabled Christmas Stocking knits up in a wink with super bulky yarn at 2 stitches per inch on size 17 needles. It is knit top down from the cuff to the toe. The narrow four stitch cables are very manageable with this hefty yarn. A star toe completes the look. This jumbo stocking will hold a lot of goodies!

Charts and line by line instructions for the cable pattern are given. Gauge is 8 st/4 inches in stockinette stitch on size 17 needles, but gauge is not critical.
