I have several hand knit Christmas Stocking patterns available for sale as online downloads and in printed form. They may be found three places:
I announced earlier this year that I was working on a dozen hand knit Christmas Stocking designs which I intended to make the subject of a book I am self-publishing, which I had wanted to complete by the end of this summer.
Well, sometimes the river of life does not flow exactly where we think it should. The book project will not be one I complete this summer afterall … but do not despair. I have released patterns for four of my hand knit Christmas Stockings.
All of my patterns are available in both printed and online download versions.
This is what I had to say earlier in the year about my Christmas Stocking pattern development project …
“I love knitting Christmas Stockings, I think more than any other item, for a several reasons. First of all, they make lovely heirloom holiday gifts for friends and family. Even if you live in a warm climate, you can have the fun of working with wool without worrying that the giftee won’t be able to wear it (hopefully no one will walk around with their Christmas Stocking on their foot).
Christmas Stockings are also affordable projects that can be knit up in one weekend if you are a fair fast knitter … but not much longer than that even if you are a bit slower.
They are also wonderful projects to embellish. My suggestion is that if you would like to knit one or more Christmas Stockings this year, start gathering interesting items for embellishments now, such as ribbons, bells, miniature toys, buttons, etc.
You should also start gathering an interesting assortment of yarns. You will generally need 200 to 300 yards of your main color, and then smaller amounts of accent colors. Ribbon yarns are great as accents, as is angora or yarns with fluffy, snow-like features.
