Stockings are one of my favourite things about Christmas. As a child my brother and I had our own personalised ones that had been knitted by grandmother. They were jumbo sized, far too big for any human foot, but perfect for stuffing with lots of exciting little presents, which we would excitedly rush to retrieve come Christmas morning.
If you need something to hang up for Father Christmas, this pattern for a knitted stocking is the perfect thing to get crafting on now. Just be sure to have it finished in time to take pride of place, hanging from the mantelpiece on Christmas Eve, as you never know what Santa might bring.
