This pattern is a companion to those in my Book “Keepsake Christmas Stockings: A Coordinated Collection to Knit.

I designed it for a colorwork class I’m developing. It is very fun and, when I’ve shown it to others, it brings a smile to their faces.

The pattern is scalable as are all the designs in the book and will work with most yarns from light to bulky.

Lightweight yarn (#3) will be approximately 18” long.
Medium weight (#4) will be approximately 21” long.
Bulky weight (#5) will be approximately 24” long.

Two options are provided in the pattern. One is to knit the stocking with a one color heel and toe. For more, select the alternative two-color heel and toe. The second version is more complex but provides a fun level of detail. Makes the stocking look like the traditional sock monkey socks.

The yardage is allows for either option and utilizes 4 colors of yarn. The white hat and face and the red pom and mouth are traditional. Use different colors for the heather/tweed body and for the background.

Cuff and Motif are knit flat and then joined to complete the foot in the round. The back seam provides some structure so that stretch is reduced when the stocking is full of goodies.
