Christmas Stocking

I'm working on writing up the pattern, but here's a list of what you'll need for a small stocking (approximately 5” wide and 9” tall):

- 2 skeins/balls bulky weight yarn (about 110 yards per skein/ball), one each of the main color and one of a contrasting color
- US size 9 (5.5mm) double pointed needles (or 2 circular needles or 1 long (40”) circular needle)
- yarn/darning needle (for weaving in ends)

3½ stitches per inch in stockinette stitch

Gauge isn't terribly important in this project, as it's not for a foot. The pattern is relatively easy to adapt to a worsted or aran weight yarn as well. Just be aware that the final measurements of your stocking may vary depending on the type of yarn you select.

I expect to have the pattern up this afternoon - just need to check my calculations on the heel gusset.
