Easy Knit Christmas Stocking Pattern

November 24, 2019

Easy Knit Christmas Stocking Pattern- beginner-friendly and quick to knit!

Easy Knit Christmas Stocking Pattern

It doesn’t feel like Christmas until the stockings are hung with care! This Easy Knit Christmas Stocking Pattern is knit on single point needles with some basic increases and decreases. I added some colorful pom poms to give it a whimsical touch, but you can customize it any way you’d like! Best of all? These stockings knit up relatively fast, so there’s plenty of time to make one for each family member!
