Reusable advent calendar - twenty-four little stockings, just add gifts!

I used DK yarn (acrylic, mostly from Wilkos I think!) and 4mm needles.

Cast on 22 stitches

Row 1: K 22
Row 2: K 22
Rows 3-12: stocking stitch (i.e. knit the odd rows, purl the even ones, finish on a purl row)
Row 13: Cast on 4, K26
Row 14: Cast on 4, P30
Rows 15-22: stocking stitch (i.e. knit the odd rows, purl the even ones, finish on a purl row)
Cast off

Sew up inside-out, rounding off the corners. When you turn it right-side round, poke the corners around to make a nice stocking shape.

Make 24 in various colours, and embroider numbers to the front.

Fill with sweets or other little gifts. Hang from a string, or pin to the mantlepiece!

This is my first attempt at writing up a pattern, so any hints and tips would be much appreciated.

For those interested in what I made but not so fussed with how I did it, skip down to the photos!
