Full of various stitch patterns, this stocking pattern is very fun to knit. Various textures keep even the most seasoned knitter interested. These are very addicting to make. You'll find yourself planning the next stocking... choosing different yarns and color combinations to create your own unique Sampler Stocking! Make one for everyone in the family, each personalized with the recipients' favorite colors. These are true compliment magnets. This pattern was originally written to be made with a worsted weight yarn, but while writing the pattern I decided to see what would happen if I used sock yarn. Like most sock knitters I have an insanely large stash of sock yarn that I never seem to use up. This was the perfect way to use up some stash AND not only stash but odds and ends, too! If you use sock yarn and make a 5 (or more) color stocking you will only need a tiny bit of yarn. For my sock yarn example I used 5 colors and 50-gram skeins of sock yarn. I was able to make three stockings and still have enough to probably even make a fourth! YES! You may sell items that you make from this pattern!

I adore knitting and crocheting. I don't understand how people can sit and watch a movie and NOT be knitting or crocheting! Such wasted opportunity. =) My mother taught me how to do both right about the time I started Kindergarten. And here I am 40 years later, designing my own patterns. Although I still do buy quite a few from fellow designers! In my spare time I enjoy (duh!) knitting and crocheting, reading my Nook, walking... spare time is limited these days with nursing classes. If only I could find a way to knit while I study...
