Knit a wonderful Holiday heirloom ... the "Christmas Stocking Trifecta"
by Michelle "Knit Purl" Hunter!
Give a handmade gift that will be cherished for years to come with the Christmas Stocking Trifecta pattern from Knit Purl Hunter!
Each stocking starts with the same toe and heel, then you can choose to knit snowflakes, deer or snowmen on the leg. Finish with the special someone's name or the year it was made.
Michelle knit her stockings in Cascade 220, but we love Brown Sheep's Nature Spun Worsted for this project. We've put together two perfect traditional color combos in red, green and white ... see them below. Or choose a more modern holiday color scheme from the 27 colors we have in stock!

This trio of traditional Christmas stockings take on a modern twist with toe up construction and a short row heel. Each stranded stocking has large color charts for easy reading. The pattern includes three separate stocking designs along with video support for all of the techniques. An alphabet chart is included to personalize your family heirloom!
