The Baba Noel Stocking looks at Christmas from an Anadolu aesthetic’s point of view, representing St Nicholas’ birthplace of Myra with Anatolian motifs.
This stocking is worked in the round, toe up. Stitches are casted on for the toe and worked with CC, and the Foot is worked with MC. German Short Rows are used to shape the Heel.
Anatolian kilims inspire the colorwork motifs of the leg section. Garter stitch rows are worked on the top edge of the Stocking, and an I-cord is worked for hanging the Stocking as a final step.

Urth Yarns is a family owned yarn company specialising in hand dyed natural yarns. They value the time and emotional investment that go into hand crafting; therefore appreciate your demand for a comforting feel and yummy colours. Developing and employing innovative dyeing techniques, their aim is for a love at first sight or touch, every time.
Mass production made us forget how to use our hands and bring out our individuality. Human touch makes all the difference. Knitting and crocheting are good for the body, the mind but also for the earth as a means of sustainable clothing production. Raise your needles and hooks if you are with us!
All of Urth yarns are dyed and prepared by skilled hands of women at their studios in Mersin and Istanbul. Through their extensive sample knitting program, they try to keep busy as many hands as we can.

Now is the time to give back. We are happy to let you know that knitting is just another way to keep the earth green. Every skein of Urth Yarns plants a tree.
