Christmas Stockings Knitting Pattern
Every year before Christmas I love to decorate our home to ring in the holiday season. We set up our tree, unpack our ornaments that have been in our family for years, the nativity set my great-grandmother made and finally, I hang up our Christmas stockings over the fireplace.
There’s just something about the stockings that bring everything together, especially when they’re handmade. You can personalize handmade stockings with different colors or stitching names on them.
I’ve made cross-stitched Christmas stockings and knitted stockings and both are beautiful. However, I do love the look of knitted projects and these stockings work up much more quickly than cross-stitch.
I have a new nephew and I believe that one of the Christmas stockings knitting patterns in the digital e-book we’ve found will be a perfect gift for his first Christmas!
Not to mention wedding gifts for soon to be newlyweds that a family friends! I imagine that I will be making several of the Christmas stockings knitting patterns found in this book by Annie’s Woolens.
