How to Turn a Stocking Loop
Creating a matching loop from the same fabric as the stocking makes great use of the excess fabric & ties the whole project together.
Each of my patterns includes a pattern piece for the loop & it is quite easy to make with a single row of straight stitching.
I have used many types of specialized turning devices over the years but always fall back to this method whenever possible. It is very basic, utilising the simplest tools & consequently the easiest.

Turn the Loop
Hang onto the turning aid until it is needed again...I have several hanging in my studio with various sized safety pins (small for the narrower items, all the way up to a Kilt pin to turn wider items).
