looking for Christmas stocking pattern. Help?
I want to make a fancy christmas stocking for my husband, myself and some other family members as time permits. I have a couple of problems.

1: I want to get started today so the supplies will have to able to be purchased as Walmart or Michael's
2: I don't have a ton of money at my disposal.

COlor work/intarsia is ok! I'm up for the challenge. I've done small projects with it before.

As for the yarn, is something acrylic like caron so soft acceptable for a project like that or do you need to go cotton or wool on stuff like stockings? You're not going to wear the things but I imagine you want something that holds a shape.

Any tips, patterns, etc would be appreciated
