The Design

“Hang by the chimney with care!”

Our Basic Christmas Stockings come in three sizes—wee, medium, and jolly big—and any length you like! Their simple shape gives you plenty of space to add your own personal touches—perhaps a colorwork cuff? We’ve picked a striking houndstooth pattern for this one. It’s sure to prompt a hearty “Ho! Ho! Ho!” from St. Nick.

We chose to knit this stocking 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 range of rich classics, heathers, and fun accents.
