Treat your family to hand-knit Christmas Stockings! These knit up fast with bulky weight yarn on large needles. Make yours one-of-a-kind with your own color combinations. How about team colors for your sports fans?

Simple ribbed cuff, flap heel, star toe and I-cord loop for hanging.

Change the size by using lighter weight yarn and corresponding needles.

Finished Size: About 7½” wide x 22” from top to toe

Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Bulky—2 skeins will make a stocking with some left over. Use one color for the whole stocking, make stripes as shown here or use up your scraps.

Needles: Size 11 circular-16 inches long and a set of size 11 double pointed needles or size to give you gauge

Gauge: 3 sts per inch. The gauge is not critical in this project.

You will want a fairly tight, smooth fabric. If you knit very loosely try a smaller needle size.
