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.

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.
