These Christmas stockings are knitted using Cascade Yarns Heritage Solid in red, green and white. They use a cuff down and heel cuff method of sock knitting with Scandinavian style motifs. The toe is finished using Kitchener stitch for which there is a link to a video tutorial.

The pattern includes instructions to make four stockings. Variations One and Two use stranded colour work to create the motifs, these could be mixed and matched to create more possibilities. Variations Three and Four use stripes for more of a candy cane effect. You will be able to make all four stockings from the three skeins.

The instructions include charts for the motifs as well as written instructions.

They will look fabulous on the mantelpiece as decorations for your Christmas festivities. You could even hide a small gift or two in them.
