27 Free Knit Christmas Stocking Patterns for a Holiday Feel

Christmas stockings are a time-honored tradition, and handknit Christmas stockings make the holiday that much more special. You can make a single stocking for a friend or family member, or make a set of coordinating ones for a family. Use the same stockings for decades, or change them up when you feel like it. Hang them up by the fire, or on your bedposts. Whatever your tradition, there’s a free knit Christmas stocking pattern here for you to make.

Bonus: If you crochet, check out the free crochet Christmas stockings round-up!

Marly’s Knit Christmas Stockings

I’ve designed two different free knit Christmas stocking patterns!

Uptown Chic Christmas Stocking Free Knitting Pattern

This free colorwork stocking pattern uses worsted-weight yarn held double, so it’s quick to knit.

Love Light Gleams Christmas Stocking Free Knitting Pattern

The Love Light Gleams pattern was a free Christmas in July make-along this summer! My friend Briana K did a crochet stocking and I did this knit stocking for our free make-along. All the clues are still on the site, so you can still follow along.
