Mini Christmas Stocking

mini xmas stockingIt’s that time of year again and I’ve started making some knitted mini christmas stockings to decorate the Christmas tree. I found this lovely pattern from the book below which I can highly recommend.

To give the stockings a little more character, I added some chocolates in to the stocking as well as a small piece of tinsel. I found some great christmassy 4ply wool on ebay, with glitter strands in the wool. The stockings are easy to make, ideal for beginners – they hang on the tree nicely too. I’ve also made a few to sell at the next charity fundraiser and hope to get some more done in time for Christmas!

I’ve tried quite a few colours out.  The red, green and gold are very traditional, but based on what people wanted the last time I made these, I’ve gone with lots of different colours – mauve, white, blue and silver have been very popular.

This book of mini Christmas knits really is one of my favourites, it was a good buy. I’ve also made some of the Christmas stars with a knitting pattern from the book, although I used two strands of 4ply for them as this made them a little more chunky – and I am definitely going to make the snowman as well that you can see on the book cover.
