These ones are a little smaller than the one I made for my swap... I actually think they are a better size for a tree decoration, and of course - being smaller - they work up much quicker!
Click here for the free online pattern. You will need to scroll down the page a bit, and might find some other patterns of interest while you are there. In fact... there is an adorable snowman I might need to make if I can find the time! Maybe for next year...
I have made a few tiny modifications to the pattern. For one, I changed colour for each row... to achieve the crazy look I love! Then at the cuff end I worked in moss/seed stitch rather than garter stitch, just for a slightly different texture.
Here is the knitted piece.
But I prefer the 'wrong side' look.
Don't worry... I won't be sewing in all of those ends. Instead of lightly stuffing the stocking, I will leave then ends as they are... and they will form the 'stuffing'
I've used the white fluffy silver fleck yarn again... looks great in real life, but not much fun to photograph!
