Basic Christmas Stocking: Candy Cane Swirl Version Using Berroco Lanas







The Design

"A sweet twist to a holiday favorite."

Our Basic Christmas Stockings have a simple, familiar shape—which gives us plenty of space to play around with fun stripes and patterns! We’ve created a free adaptation to our original pattern to add swirly, two-color stripes to the length and foot of the stocking. With a cheery, contrasting cuff, heel, and toe to finish, this stocking is as sweet as a candy cane!

We picked classic, peppermint-y colors of worsted-weight Berroco Lanas for this version of our Basic Christmas Stocking. Made of 100% Pure Wool—a special blend of South American wools—Lanas is a soft and cozy workhorse. It’s a go-to choice for sturdy, woolly pieces that we want to last and last. Plus, each of its deeply saturated colors has a beautiful, gentle luster.
