- Sewing machine (or other means)
Block knitting to desired size and lay flat on top of fabric.
Trace a line about 1/2 - 3/4 inch from the edge of the knitwear. Then add another 1/4 inch seam allowance and cut out 2 pieces.
Sew the two pieces of fabric together, right-sides (sides with the print) facing.
Trim any excess fabric you might have so that there’s about 1/4 inch seam allowance. Cut silts to the sewn edge on the curves, about every couple of inches. This will help the shaping when it’s flipped inside out.
Put the lining as is inside of your stocking. Then, turn the whole thing inside out so that the right-side of the fabric is on the outside and the right-side of the knitting is on the inside.
Fold top the extra top bit of fabric and pin it just under the Latvian Plait braid stitches, using the line you pressed before sewing.
Sew the two layers together, positioning it so that you’re sewing on top of the purl bumps under the braid. You should pull the knitting as taunt as the fabric will allow. If you machine sew it, have the knitting side up, otherwise your feeders will have a field day with the yarn.
If all goes well, when left to do it’s own thing, the braid should hide your stitches.
