Knit Christmas Stocking Pattern
Get in the holiday spirit with these knit Christmas stockings.
These Christmas stockings were embroidered using a technique called the duplicate stitch. For this pattern, first the socks were knit, then designs were added over existing stitches with a tapestry needle and contrasting yarn. You can draw your own design on graph paper to use as a guide. Each square on graph paper equals one stitch. Work from bottom up, making stitches taut, not tight. Thread needle with same weight yarn as sock. This is for a women's size medium sock; instructions for a 13-inch stocking and baby socks (size three to six months), respectively, are in parentheses
