It's December 8th - just over two weeks until Christmas and I'm here to tell you that you still have time to knit up a gift or two. Try one of my Jumbo Christmas Stockings in a Jiffy in either the striped or solid pattern.
In less than one week, I designed and knit all four of these jumbo stockings for our fireplace mantle. In fact, I also knit yesterday's two green and white test knits. So if I can knit six in one week, I know you can, too.
Today's free pattern is the Jumbo Christmas Stocking in a Jiffy Solid. You can download the pattern here - Download Jumbo Christmas Stocking Solid PDF
For each stocking you'll need the following:
- US Size 15 needles for knitting in the round (magic loop, two circs or dpns)
- 1.5 skeins of the main color
- 0.8 skein of the contrast color
- Yarn choices - I used Cascada Lana Grande in Deep Red and Ecru. Lion Brand makes a good one. Or you can choose your favorite super bulky yarn.
Enjoy this second free gift of the season. I hope you'll make one, or two or several before Christmas.
