Christmas in a Hurry ~ 15-minute Stockings

The preparations for the festive season often leave me in a rush.
So much to do ....... so little time for crafting!
 
However, these 4" Stockings are a joy to knit.
They are simple and easy - and take just 15minutes each.
 
I have made hundreds of little stockings for fundraising over the past 10 years.
I wish I had thought of this sooner!
 
Christmas in a Hurry  ~  15-minute Stockings
 
 
Christmas in a Hurry ~ 15-minute Christmas Stocking
Using two strands of DK yarn knitted together & 5mm or 6mm needles ~
 
Cast on 12sts (leaving a 6” 'tail' to use later for the hanging cord)

 
Knit 2 rows
Beginning with a knit row, work in stocking stitch (one row knit, one row purl) for 12 rows
 
Shape the heel as follows -
Row 1:  K8, turn
Row 2:  P4, turn
Row 3:  K6, turn
Row 4:  P8, turn
Row 5:  K10, turn
 
Beginning with a purl row, work in stocking stitch (one row knit, one row purl) for4 rows
Shape the toe as follows -
 
P2tog all across row              (6sts)
K2tog all across row              (3sts)
Break off the yarn, leaving a 'tail' to sew up side seam.
Thread the yarn on to a needle and thread it through the remaining stitches.
Pull tightly and fasten off.
Sew the side seam.
 
For the hanging cord, simply tie a knot on the 2 strands of the cast on 'tail'.
Decorate as desired – with a ribbon bow, button or other embellishment.

Holly Bunting

With just 90 days to go before hanging our Christmas Stockings for Santa to fill,
my thoughts have been turning to festive fun!
 
 
 
Holly Bunting has been my first project.
 
There are lots of ways to decorate this simple holly bunting -
use knitted holly berries, or try buttons, ribbons, bows, jingle bells, flowers ......
