TOMTE Christmas Stocking


This Nordic style Christmas stocking is knitted from the toe-up and can be knitted very quickly when using a worsted weight yarn. And, there is no second sock syndrome as you only need 1 per person!

The colours we have selected are the colours we would use traditionally for Christmas here in Norway. If you prefer a combination of colours which includes red and green, you can easily replace the grey colour we’ve used, with green!

This is a pattern for a Christmas stocking with an afterthought heel. If you’ve never knitted a heel like this before, check out our tutorials for The Easiest Sock in the World and The heel of the Easiest Sock in the World.
