Knit Christmas Stocking knits up quickly.

Get a head start on Christmas with this Chunky Knit Christmas Stocking pattern.

Fair warning, I know it’s only October, but I am going to start popping some Christmas ideas up here.

Here’s my thinking…if you are anything like me you have realized that Christmas is a mere 10 weeks away. And while 10 weeks is certainly enough time to get stuff done…if you plan on doing some making and baking for the holidays, it’s time to get your nutcrackers in row…or at least get started snicker-doodling some ideas.

So…with that disclaimer, let’s just jump right in to Christmas!

And since we are talking about Christmas, it’s only fitting that there may be gifts🎁…stick around until the very end of the post…just saying!🎁

If you love all the chunky knits out there, then I have a treat for you. This Chunky Christmas Stocking not only knits up really quickly and will accommodate just about any decor; but…the recipient will LOVE the fact that this knit Christmas stocking holds quite a bit!Videos show how to knit this Chunky Christmas Stocking

If you get busy knitting, you could very easily whip up a whole Duggar family of stockings between now and Christmas with this chunky yarn and big needles.

You could put poms poms on your Christmas stockings…or leave them off.  You could also easily embroider a name on the cuff of the stocking if you were so inclined.Pom Poms add detail to the Knit Chunky Stocking Pattern.

This Knit Christmas Stocking pattern makes use of several techniques which I explain in a series of YouTube videos:

In addition to the pattern, these videos will show how to knit the stocking.

The first technique is the Magic Circle method for knitting socks and stockings. The magic circle replaces your double-pointed needles with one circular needle.

The second video is about shaping the heel:

The third video shows how to shape the toe:

And the fourth video shows how to bind the Christmas stocking off using the Kitchener stitch:

    I’m half finished with a Hana Lace Scarf in Habu Tsumugi Silk, with beaded edge. It’s from Piecework Magazine, Nov/Dec 2016. It’s for a nun friend. Wonderful fun to knit.

    These stockings are adorable and I love that chunky, fuzzy presentation. Sharing early is smart because it gives others time to get started on them now. You are so talented, the only knitting I’ve ever been able to accomplish was on one of those circular looms.

      I have never tried one of the looms! And I agree about getting started early…it’s such a relief to know you have a good deal accomplished by time December rolls around.

      And talk about talent…I am in awe of your green thumb!

      Have a great day my friend.

      Hugs, Lynn

    I have started my Christmas crafting by knitting several of your washcloth patterns. I plan to create a little kit for my daughter, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, and 2 granddaughters. I am buying home/crafted soaps and lotions to include in each kit.
