I’ve been making these stocking ornaments for a few years now. Originally I found the wonderful pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits. I loved the look of the stocking but I didn’t like having to seam it up (and I’m not a fan of color-work that is knit flat). So I came up with my own stocking ornament in the round. A friend recently asked for the pattern so here you go.

Notes on the pattern:
I like to use fingering weight wool yarn with size 1 needles because they are comfortable for me. Any size yarn or needles will work. Different size yarn will give different size ornaments. Using wool yarn and blocking after finished helps even out the pattern and keep everything neat and tidy. I just typed this up without looking up knitting terminology so most things are spelled out. I’ve also included some notes on how I distribute the stitches on my needles but feel free to adjust and do what feels comfortable to you so long as you follow the stitch counts.

Stranded patterns are charted only.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions or if I’ve made any mistakes!
