Well there's an older brother so I figured he needed a matching stocking, too. I found some sapphire blue yarn and made a blue and white candy cane stocking too.
Once again, I did not make a cardboard stocking blocker so this stocking isn't as perky as it might otherwise be.
Here are both sibling stockings at the fireplace mantle.
Here they are laying flat on the footstool so you can see that they are not actually deformed. Ha!
I hope these siblings enjoy their Big Bright & Cheery Stockings in a Blink of an Eye. Mom and Dad should be warned - they are large - so you might need some mighty big stocking stuffers.
If you're going to alter the pattern as I did to use this Cascade 128 yarn (see notes on my Ravelry project pages here and here) just know that there is hardly any ecru yarn leftover. I knit the cuff exactly 4.5 inches. I probably could have knit another half inch... but it's a little scary to end a project with so little yarn.
I have just shy of a half skein of the sapphire blue (which looks purply in this photo) but hardly any of the ecru. I enjoyed using the Cascade 128 bulky yarn - but think my preference is to stick with the original pattern and use the Cascade Lana Grande and the US Size 15 needles.
Good luck with your last minute Christmas knitting. You still have 11 days and could reasonably knit up one or two of these stockings (if you don't have any other holiday knitting to finish up before then). Give it a try. I think you'll be glad you did.
