Knitting pattern for a tiny Christmas stocking for a Christmas table setting

Yes, I really am knitting for Christmas. And why? Because last year I started too late.

I’m fixing my mistake now.

I’ve been drooling over those tiny Christmas stockings you can use on your table setting for few years now, and I never realised – I could knit it myself you know…

Well, I did knit it, I was quite happy with it and now am sharing the pattern with you.

  • size 4 mm / US 7 double pointed needles or circular needles
  • 15 g (30 yards) of white 10 ply / aran / worsted yarn – I used DROPS Nepal

  • dpns – double pointed needles;
  • sts – stitches;
