I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
We are having our third and final family gathering here tomorrow, and then it will be time to start thinking about my son’s birthday in a few weeks!
I posted this picture of our tree on Christmas eve and had several people comment about the stockings, so I thought I would just post the link to the pattern here.
I started making these stockings last year and plan on making one for each of our children, with the coloured stripe being a different colour for each. I only got 3 stockings finished in time last year and got the 4th finished just in time this year. I’ll make Malachi’s before next Christmas.
I did knit the stockings slightly differently than the pattern called for, but not by much. I knit them on circular needles instead of the double pointed needles the pattern calls for, but that just meant I had to use knit markers to separate which stitches would have been on needles 1, 2, and 3. And I made the stocking slightly smaller than the pattern said. Overall, the pattern is pretty easy though and with all of the youtube videos out there teaching knitting techniques, I think a fairly beginner knitter could manage it.
Here’s the knit stocking link!
