Amidst all of the DIYs we’ve done, this one has very quickly risen is at the top of my list. I, personally, have been on the hunt for cute knit stockings for years now, and have yet to find anything that even remotely fits within my budget. It turns out, knit stockings are expensive! So, we made our own, and the results are kind of amazing!
Download and print out the stocking template (it will take up 2 pages). Tape the pages together and cut out the stocking shape.
Sew along the cut edges of the stocking with the yarn and tie a knot when you reach the other end. Not sure how to do a basic hand stitch? Check out this video.
*Tip: Look for sweaters with knit cables, details, and texture for a really classic look. You can probably get 2 stockings out of a single adult women’s sweater.
