KP-Kristin's Creative Christmas Stockings

Kristin Nicholas' handknitting designs are joyful, colorful, and happy. They mix patterns and colors with wild abandon, which makes her style perfectly suited to the holiday tradition of knitting Christmas stockings. Doesn't every member of your family need their own special handknit stocking? Christmas stockings are lovely wedding gifts for newlyweds just beginning their lives together or for a baby's first Christmas. Don't forget your family's feline or canine member.

Inspired by the handknit stockings that she grew up with in her family's home in Dover, NJ, Kristin's Creative Christmas Stockings includes 6 designs in 4 sizes which are designed to follow your growing knitting skills. There are patterns for solid and striped stockings, along with more intricate Fair Isle versions. Five of the stockings also feature easy embroidery stitches which are added after the knitting is complete.

They are knit in Kristin's worsted weight Color by Kristin wool, mohair, and alpaca yarn which comes in a lovely array of bright and happy colors.
