Celebrate the festival of Christmas with hand knit Christmas stockings. You can make this Christmas a festival to remember by knitting Christmas stockings for friends and family who will remember you and cherish your gift for years to come. Knitting stockings can be a fun filled project if you follow the instructions given and in this way you can create whimsical, beautiful and dainty stockings for adults and the children in the family. Smaller skeins of wool can also be used to make mini stockings for pets and toddlers or even for decorating the tree. Christmas is a time of fun and frolic so knitting stockings will only add to the festive spirit.
Knit Christmas stockings can be knitted in any color but red, green and white are colors usually used with the classic stripe pattern. Merino wool or organic cotton is used to knit such stockings but merino wool is a little chunkier. Christmas yarn with gold and silver thread running through the yarn will make excellent stockings. The patterns knitted on the stockings can be a snowman, reindeer, Santa, angels or even snowflakes. You can accentuate the stockings with pom-poms and bows and even personalize them by embroidering your name on them. All these designs look really cute. In fact colorful stockings full of different designs also look very attractive. These lovely vintage inspired knit Christmas stockings are ideal items that can be knitted in one evening only if you use bulky yarn.
