The Design

“Big, festive fun!”

When it comes to our Basic Christmas Stockings, we tend to think the bigger the better. So we’ve created a free adaptation to our original pattern for hand-knit stockings in a chunky-weight yarn—more space to stuff full of little gifts and treats! We’ve given you a few ideas to add your own personal touch—sure to prompt a hearty “Ho! Ho! Ho!” from St. Nick.

For big, fluffy, quick-to-knit Basic Christmas Stockings, we chose Rowan Big Wool, with a furry cuff knit in Sirdar Alpine. Chunky-weight Big Wool is a woolly mammoth of a yarn spun from 100% merino wool. It’ll knit your stockings up in a jiff! Alpine, another chunky yarn akin to a fringed ribbon, adds a fun, faux fur finish. Have a blast playing with our festively stripey colorways!
