So here’s the pattern/tutorial to create a cute Christmas stocking. You can use them to make an advent calendar, as mini-plushies or as a tree decorations (sorry for the bad pictures by the way !).

Christmas (mini) stocking

Level : beginner

You need :

  • 2 differents yarns (green or red & white is obsiously the easiest match for Christmas !)
  • 1 sewing needle
  • 1 pair of knitting needles (3.5 to 4 mm)
  • Beads, ribbons…

Tip : I like a smooth “fur” effect at the top. So I actually use a bigger yarn and a 5 mm pair of knitting needles on the top.

Let’s go !
  1. Cast on 30 stitches :
