Christmas Stockings

Introducing my Christmas Stockings knitting pattern. I designed these for beginner knitters, so there is no knitting in the round or turning heels in this pattern. They are quick to knit, and a great project to use up odds and ends of yarn. Each stocking is 8 cm tall. The stocking is knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. The hanging loop is a single crochet chain. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a k2tog decrease and a kfb increase, and sew seams.


  • Instructions for making the stockings and photos.
  • A materials list and recommended yarns.
  • The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.
  • Measurements are in metric.

Materials you need at home:

  • A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
  • A 3.75mm crochet hook (US F)
  • Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight)

Love this little pattern. So straightforward that after making a couple I have memorized the pattern and can make my own variations. Great fun!
