Knit Christmas Stocking Pattern

I finally did it.
I finally decided what type of Christmas stocking I wanted to knit for our family.
This is a big decision!
For me, it meant deciding on what kind of Christmas decor I'd be settling on for years to come.
It meant deciding what I wanted Christmas to feel like in our home.
At least for me, because I stress about stuff like that.
As you can see, I decided (after lots of contemplation and web browsing and Pinterest perusing and shopping around and ... which literally took years) that what I like best for our home is kind of rustic-y, earth-y, outdoors-y, nature-y feel for my Christmas. And voila, out came these stockings.

I saw similar stockings to these in a Pottery Barn magazine years ago but they were all white and cranberry red. Loved them. However, I decided to go super-traditional and add a nice forest green. I must say, I am very happy with how they turned out, which is nice since it was such a decision for me to make! :) 

Now the pattern for these is quite easy and strait-forward, especially if you've ever knitted socks before. I wanted our stockings to look like big, oversized socks, so the pattern is basically a big sock pattern. Plus I used bulky yarn to add to the rustic/homemade feel.
I hope you enjoy!

Hope you enjoy the pattern and are able to make some lovely Christmas stockings this year!

Lots of love,



  1. Oh my gosh, thank you! I've been looking for exactly that kind of pattern forever and two years later, still no stockings! Maybe this will motivate me! :)

  2. Thanks for the visual!! I just finished lining mine today thanks to this post!
