Casting On: Mini Christmas Stockings

My knitting needles have been diverted away from the pullover I was working on and redirected toward some tiny ornaments. There's a lovely blog from the United Kingdom called Little Cotton Rabbits. The blog's author has kindly provided a free pattern for Mini Christmas Stockings and I couldn't resist making a few.

I used bits of yarn that I had on hand, which happened to be baby sport weight. In lieu of a button, I added a jingle bell to each of the four stockings. For fun, I played with combining three colours on one of them.

If you knit, you might enjoy this little project. I'm going to wrap up these ones and give them to a friend who's coming for lunch later this week.

I may have to knit some for myself. Working them up is pleasantly habit forming.

  3. These little stockings are darling, Karen! They will make wonderful gifts for anyone. You should make some for your own tree.

  4. Karen, these are adorable! Although they're all sweet, I have to admit, the tri-coloured one is my favourite! They are perfect presents, as they are handmade with love.


  5. Absolutely in LOVE with your stockings. I pinned them so I will be able to go back and find the Little Cotton Rabbits site.

  6. These stockings are lovely and have beautifull colours. I should knit them in a bigger size to wear them in winter, they look nice and warm.
