Knit Picks Elf Stocking
Good Morning! I just came across Knit Picks Elf Stocking kit on facebook and love it!!! Is anyone working on this or something like this now? I consider myself an advanced beginner and have never knitted on the bias. Is it difficult? I so want to make these for the grand kids. Thanks!

I haven't knit these but they certainly seem do-able. Bias knitting usually involves increasing on one edge and decreasing on the other edge. Picking up that technique shouldn't be a problem nor should the short rows that the pattern intro mentions. You could give it a whirl and if you run into problems, you know where to post!
