Use Pattern to Cut Fabric
Cut out your fabric using the pattern pieces. Cut two mirror images for the stocking’s exterior, two mirror images for the lining and one piece for the loop.
Cut one rectangle piece of knit fabric for the fringe. If more fringe is desired, cut two fringe pattern pieces and double them up.
Following the pattern instructions, use scissors or a rotary cutter to cut long slits up the fabric leaving the top inch intact.
