Felted Christmas Stocking


Size: After felting, about 16” long from cuff to toe, about 8” wide at cuff
Needles: Size US 10.5 (6.5 mm) 24” circular needle, size US 10.5 (6.5 mm) double-pointed needles
Yarn: 100% NON-superwash bulky wool (see note below on yarn choices and amounts)
Additional Materials: tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Gauge: 3.5 stitches per inch before felting

Note on Yarn: For the stocking to felt properly, you must use 100% non-superwash wool. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in these colors: Wine, Lumberjack, and Silver.
STRIPED STOCKING, THREE COLORS: 65 grams each of the two striping colors, and 45 grams of the accent color (used on the cuff/toe/heel). I bought one hank of each of the three colors, with plenty left over.
SOLID STOCKING, TWO COLORS: 130 grams of the main color, and 45 grams of the accent color (used on the cuff/toe/heel). For a two color stocking, you will need two hanks of the main color, and one hank of the accent color.

Information on things you’ll see in this video:
I mention my other Christmas stocking pattern in the video, which can be found here.

The yarn I used in my stockings is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky.

The circular needles I used are different Knitter’s Pride needles from 16″ circular sets (the pattern calls for 24″ circulars).

The double-pointed needles I used are Knitter’s Pride Bamboo DPNs.

The ball-chain stitch markers I used can be found here.

My silver ring is actually a knitting needle gauge, and can be found here.

My nail polish is by Julep, color “Janie”.

  1. Staci,

    I absolutely LOVE your shirt!! It’ so different from what you usually wear that I immediately noticed.

    Love your videos and all that you do to make knitting so easy to understand and expand our skills.

  2. Thanks, Staci for another great pattern! When working the striped stocking, do we carry the yarn between rounds or do we cut the yarn in between?
    Thank you!
    Glynda O.
