Here's another really quick and easy stocking pattern with stripes. The Striped Stocking uses wide bands of red and white -- like a candy cane! -- and a bulky yarn so that you'll have a stocking or two on and back off the needles in no time.
I like this one, too, because it has a short-row heel, which is fun to knit. It's a great skill to pick up on a large scale if you haven't worked one on a small sock before.
