Pattern for “Starry Night” christmas stockings in 3 variations.
You should know how to knit in the round and with 2 colors. The pattern includes instructions and hints on how to knit the socks as well as 3 color charts.

What you need:

  • scissors
  • tapestry needle
  • crochet hook size 4mm
  • set of dpns matching your gauge ( 3.5-4mm/US 4-6 for the plain parts, 5-6mm /US 8-10 for two-colored sections) For each sock:
  • 50g of the main color
  • about 10g of each contrast color

Gauge is not crucial here, children rather get more excited to have bigger christmas stockings than smaller ones. You can use every sport weight yarn of your choice or thicker. A thinner yarn would probably cause Santa trouble stuffing all the gifts into the stockings.

Finished measurements: 16x5.3inch / 41cmx13,5cm
