How to knit a Xmas stocking

Feeling creative? We thought we’d try our hands at making some Xmas stockings (well, there’s a few weeks to try and master it, right?)

A basic start for the impatient or uncoordinated might be a crochet job (well, there’s only one needle…) like this simple stripey one.

 

 

 

Or for a basic knit take inspiration from this striped stocking – but why not go crazy with yarns/textures/colours…? Or go with supersoft greys and then add a bright pop stripe.

 

 

 

Serious Knit Wits might like this traditional option with a Nordic snowflake pattern.

Of how about these dinky little ones as alternatives to baubles on the Xmas tree…?
