View Full Version : FO: Hubby's Christmas Stocking!

11-16-2009, 02:19 PM
After looking for stocking patterns, hubby finally bought me this book. It was called"Knit Christmas Stockings: 19 patterns for stockings and ornaments"

One of the patterns in there was for a Mix and match stocking. It tells you the basic pattern/construction but then gives you charts to mix and match as you wish. This is my first holiday stocking and of course, I sit here and pick out all the imperfections. It is a bit uneven in this pic but the pic isn't that good either. I still need to block it and knit a hanging loop. When I show my friends, they all go "that's a BIG stocking". Well yeah, the pattern says it should be 23 inches. This one is closer to 24 but still.

Opinions? Should I make more?

YES! It's awesome! Plus, the bigger it is, the more stuff Santa will need to put in it! :teehee:

GREAT job!

Thanks, guys!
I'm already halfway done on one for myself. I've been knitting up a small tornado here lately

I'd like to make stockings for other family members but that might be a bit ambitious. We'll see!
