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 !
- Cast on 30 stitches :
2 – Knit 12 rows :
3 – Row 13 : cast off 6 stitches
4 – Row 14 : cast off 6 stitches
5 – Knit 12 rows :
Let’s change color !
- Cut the current yarn : leave 20 cm.
- Start knitting with a different color : knit 5 rows
- 6th row : cast off !
Sew & fold !
