- Time:2 hours
1Use a gauge of 18 sts and 24 rows (about 4 inch) in stocking st to knit a stocking that measures about 18 inch long. Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
