This classic Christmas Stocking pattern uses Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick yarn in two colors, Cranberry and Fisherman, and it celebrates the beautiful colors of the Christmas season. Knit from the cuff to the toe in the round, the heel of the stocking is constructed using the Wrap + Turn Short Rows method. An I-cord is used to create a hook for hanging the stocking on your mantle.

This Christmas Stocking pattern produces a large stocking with a folded-over cuff and contrasting heel and toe colors to hang amidst your tree and trimmings. It’s perfect for filling up with stocking stuffers for kids of all ages. You can personalize it by adding an initial or Christmas tree in duplicate stitch on the leg of the stocking, or keep it simple and classic.
