Christmas Stockings

My grandmother has knit Christmas stockings (the same pattern) for everyone in the family for decades.  My parents each have one.  She knit one for me when I was a baby.  My sister has one.  When Matt and I got married, she knit one for him.  Now, she’s knit one for Ginny:

    Hooray! Of course, it’s been done for months… and she was asking constantly what name she could put on it. :-)

    Hi, I saw your picture of the Christmas Stocking and wanted to know if you would either share the pattern or sell me a copy of the pattern. You see I have almost the identicial stocking that my mother started making in 1965 for all of the family. She passed away about 8 years ago and did not leave a copy of this pattern . We have been hunting for it ever since & this is the closest we have come. I have a new grandchild due in April and would very much like to be able to give one to her and keep the stocking alive in our family tradition.

    How lovely to see that you have the same knitted christmas stocking as me. I’ve had mine for over 50 years ….. does your gran still have the pattern??

    would love to find it.

    Hi, I have done the same thing for my family many years ago now those kids have married and have spouses and i have grandchildren. I moved about 17 years ago from Michigan to Ohio and when i did i lost my pattern to my stockings which looks the same as yours. I would like to continue the tradition and was wondering if i could get your pattern. I know my family and their spouses and kids would be thrilled. Thank you

    Found this image while looking for artwork on Google… And I was greatly amused. My grandma knit stockings with the same pattern for everyone in my family as well! :) Just found it neat. :)

    CRAZY! My grandma made the exact same ones’s for everyone in my family! She’s unable to carry on the tradition so I’m searching for the pattern! Stumbled upon your picture. Love it.
