These Christmas stockings are knitted using Cascade Yarns Heritage Solid in red, green and white. They use a cuff down and heel cuff method of sock knitting with Scandinavian style motifs. The toe is finished using Kitchener stitch for which there is a link to a video tutorial.
The pattern includes instructions to make four styles of Christmas stockings.
Christmas Stockings Variations One and Two use stranded colour work to create the motifs, these could be mixed and matched to create more possibilities.
Christmas Stockings Variations Three and Four use stripes for more of a candy cane effect. You will be able to make all four stockings from the three skeins of yarn.
The instructions for the stockings include charts for the motifs as well as written instructions.
The Christmas Stockings will look fabulous on the mantelpiece as decorations for your Christmas festivities. You could even hide a small gift or two in them. A real heirloom gift to pass down through the family and one that will be much treasured by the recipients.
The pattern includes a schematic, written and charted instructions. It has been professionally tech edited as well as test knitted.
The stockings are knitted cuff down with a proper heel flap and will hold a number of small gifts or other fun surprises.
The stranded colourwork motifs could be mixed and matched easily to create an extra stocking or two for larger families. You don’t have to stick to red, white and greenn. You could choose colours based on the college they’re attending, favourite sports teams or Harry Potter house colours. Have fun with it and make them with lots of love.add to cart show cart

As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear.
