Holly Christmas Stocking kit: This pattern is also available as a knitting kit which includes all the materials required to make one stocking.

This festive stocking pattern cleverly uses both stranded colourwork and duplicate stitch to create cheerful holly motifs. Knit in a DK weight yarn, it is worked just like an oversized sock and is lined with felt for added sturdiness.
