Knit an heirloom for a loved one, or level up your own holiday. Use the beach-inspired colors in the sample, or go traditional with red, white, green, and silver or gold.

This colorful Christmas Stocking is inspired by historical knitting, in large enough yarn that you can see what you’re doing and finish quickly. The cuff is an Estonian shell stitch and the colorwork is inspired by Turkish sock design.

Knit from the top down, this design features i-cord edging on the cuff for strength and beauty. The afterthought heel is identical to the top-down toe, for design integrity and ease of knitting.
