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!
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.
Some of these are affiliate links and I will earn a small commission off of the sale of these products, but the price you are charged is not affected. You can see my full disclosure policy here.
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:
AND…remember that mention of gifties? Well…my friends at Berroco Yarn are giving away a skein of Berroco Macro yarn to three lucky readers…Christmas is indeed coming early my friends!
So…if you’d like to enter to win one of these 3 skeins of Berroco Macro in Snowshoe Hare so that you can knit up your very own Chunky Knit Christmas Stocking, you have two chances to enter:
Three winners will be randomly chosen on October 20th and my friends at Berroco will mail the yarn to the winners.
