Stockings and ornaments.

We’ve had lots of requests for stocking patterns lately, as knitters prepare for the holiday season not only with gift-making, but also with hand-stitched decorations. We had only a few stocking patterns to offer, so we went hunting for more. Here’s what we found!

From Leisure Arts, we found one¬†collection of knit stockings and another of beaded knit ornaments. We also reordered¬†a favorite book of stockings from Storey Publishing, reprinted in paperback: Gwen Steege’s Knit Christmas Stockings.

For crocheters, there’s this collection of snowflakes, which would make lovely winter decor, indeed.

We also found a great single pattern from Churchmouse that shows how to knit and embellish stockings in three sizes: wee, medium, and jolly big.
