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,
