Christmas Stocking Knitting Motifs

Last Updated on

Christmas stockings are fun to knit because you don’t have to be exact on the size, you can use up leftover yarns and you only need to make one. For this stocking I used handspun yarns.

I've had an interest in weaving, looms, yarns and textiles since I was a small child. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, do needlepoint at my mother's knee. My grandmother was a Saami from northern Norway. I am very interested in studying more about tradtional Saami and Finnish style weaving and handicrafts. Paivi Suomi
