Tips and Tricks for Knit Christmas Stockings
Yarn Type. When making a knitted Christmas stocking, it is likely going to work the best if you do not use a super bulky yarn. Bulky weight yarn will make a bigger stocking, and it might be difficult to work within a detailed project like a Christmas stocking, however, it does work in some cases. For most patterns, you are going to be better off using a worsted weight yarn. There are many types of soft worsted-weight yarn options to choose from, so you should be able to find one that you prefer.
Color Options. The sky is the limit when it comes to the colors you should make your Christmas stockings in. The most traditional colors are going to be red, green, and white, but nothing says that it has to be those specific colors. Feel free to use the color combination that you like the best!
