In my family, a grandmother’s name is Honey. And in my family, it’s Honey’s job to make the Christmas stockings! So here are mine—knit for my three-year-old granddaughters. The colors (7 in all) are seasonal, the bobbles add a little Christmas bling, and the hearts say “The person who made this loves you.”

Having their name on the stocking is important to us, and so I show these with their names. But a chart is included with all letters of the alphabet so that you may write what you wish.

The stocking is made in a worsted weight yarn that is felted. This makes a sturdy piece that’ll last forever. (The felting also means that any idiosyncrasies in your stranded two-color knitting will disappear.) In addition, the medium weight yarn makes it a quicker knit without losing the necessary details. All good stuff!

The gauge offered is before felting: an after felting gauge is also offered.
