Knit Christmas Stocking
As much as Vintage Mary Maxim Sweaters are iconic North American winter wear, Mary Maxim Christmas Stockings are heirloom items made by favorite Aunts and Grandma’s across the continent. We are always getting emails and messages inquiring about a pattern that a beloved Aunt had in order to pass it down to the next generation of family knitters. We love hearing stories of knitting a favorite Christmas Stocking Pattern to celebrate an engagement or the birth of a new baby.
We are excited to see the tradition continue with the Snowman and Rudolph Christmas Stocking Pattern is a Christmas decor staple for your holiday season. This pattern features an easy to follow graph with adorable Christmas design elements and a letter graph to personalize it.
To knit these stockings, you’ll need Mary Maxim Starlette yarn in the colors Red, Green, White, Taupe, and Black. You’ll also need a pair of size 8 (5.00 mm) knitting needles or size needed to achieve gauge.
December is an exciting month at Mary Maxim, we have teamed up with some amazing makers and experts to bring you a Free Pattern each day. Make sure to stop by our blog everyday for new entries and to grab those amazing patterns!!
