The ribboned stockinette is an easy reversible stitch created with simple knit, purl and slip stitches. It got its name from the horizontal lines of yarn running through the right side rows. This stitch is remarkable also because its "wrong" side can be seen by many as more beautiful than the right side.
Inspired by magical scenes of Christmas in the snow in Scandinavia, these Santas are knit on straight needles in stockinette stitch in one piece and then seamed. Two patterns included - one for Santa bundled up in a heart pattern suit and the other for Santa in a cozy Nordic reindeer sweater. Final size is about 12.5 cm (5 in) high. Hang them from the tree or stand them up to decorate the house. Make adorable toys... very sweet seeing Santa's face peeking out of the stocking on Christmas…

How to make a nice edge stitch. At the beginning of the row, hold the yarn in front (instead of in the back as it usually would be). Insert your needle in the back of the first stitch (knitwise) and slip it (without knitting it). Continue knitting your row as usual. The last stitch is knit normally. Only the first stitch is treated differently. You can use this technique for stockiness or garter.
