This pattern was included in the November 2009 Rockin’ Sock Club shipment.
One skein each of four colors is enough to complete three Christmas Stockings.
Matching gauge isn’t crucial. Choose a needle size that gives you a fabric you like: small enough to keep the fabric from being too loose, large enough to keep the fabric from being too dense.
The Christmas Stocking is worked from the toe up, with a short-row toe and a matching short-row heel.
