Big Stripey Stocking Pattern

This stocking is a holiday catch-all, an impressive stash-buster, and can be used as an emergency brake on gift spending: once the stocking is full, your holiday haul is complete!

But fear not, this stocking isn’t a tool of the grinch - it’s seriously big. It’ll hold an animal or doll – or even two – plus lots of other goodies. In case it helps you to visualize just how big it is, the stocking holds five rolls of toilet paper plus a grapefruit in the heel.

This giant stripey delight knits up quickly in scrap yarn held double, triple, and more. You can most likely whip one up in a weekend. Here’s to keeping the holidays right-sized and hand-made!

About this Pattern

Skill Level: Beginner

Skills Needed: Knit in the round, purl, kfb (knit front and back), k2tog (knit two together).

Finished Size: 22 inches / 56 cm long, 17 inches / 43 cm in circumference.
