Easy Christmas Stockings to Knit

By November 28, 2013

Follow me on:

If you're knitting stockings for the whole family I hope for your sake you've started already, but if you just want to knit one stocking for someone special or a new addition to the family you still have plenty of time (and actually, you could knit a few of some of these easy ones).

I like a stocking that gives you a canvas for adding your own embellishments, like my simple two-color Stockinette Stocking. You can easily stitch in a monogram or another simple design of your choice.

If stripes are more your thing, my Striped Stocking is also a quick and easy choice in bulky yarn. I love it in classic red and white stripes, but choose whatever colors you like in your holiday decor.

Combine stripes and personalization in Eileen Casey's Personalized Christmas Stocking, which is a large project but a lot of fun to work and an instant heirloom.

Do you have knit stockings? I'd love to hear about them!

I knit a Christmas stocking for my Dad one year which came out big enough for my 3 year old niece to use as a potato sack in a potato sack race. I over estimated the size by quite a bit and when I realized just how big it was going to end up I decided, “what the hey, let’s see what happens!” Maybe I should knit my Mom a matching one…….
