Flat Knit Christmas Stocking Knitting Pattern

Flat Knit Christmas Stocking Knitting Pattern

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without stockings! I found a bunch of Christmas Stocking knitting patterns online that used double pointed or circular needles, but very few using straight…so I decided to make one!

This knitting pattern is relatively simple. If you can cast on extra stitches and decrease this will be a breeze! I decided to go with the classic red and white, but these could be great in other colors too. You can even embroider a simple design of the front using this easy technique.
Scroll down for the pattern or click below to buy the ad-free, printable version for a small fee. The printable version is an instant download that conveniently prints on 2 pages.
