The Design

"Wee, medium, and jolly big in any length you like!"

Start a creative tradition with hand-knit Basic Christmas Stockings! Their simple shape gives you plenty of space to add your own personal touches. We’ve given you a few ideas and instructions for stockings in three sizes—wee, medium, and jolly big—to knit to any length you like. However you choose to personalize your stockings, they’re sure to prompt a hearty “Ho! Ho! Ho!” from St. Nick.

We chose to knit our Basic Christmas Stockings in Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted. A sleeper favorite, we love the hardy durability and woolly softness of this worsted-weight, single-spun yarn. Take a look at the Lamb’s Pride color palette—you’ll find a fun range of rich classics, heathered shades, and playful accents.
