Knitted Christmas Stockings

I had fun making these up as I went along. I gave them deep cuffs with a hanging loop for extra strength and made it wide for story books and DVDs plus all those other extra special surprises for Xmas Day! 

I knitted in the round with DPNs and a circular needle and carried the yarns across for the Intarsia method. I did a few designs on some squared paper. Then, as I knitted, I came up with alterations and additions. 
Sequins, ribbon and bells were also added which catch the light in some places on the photos, but not others… 

I loved using the combinations of pastel greens and pinks with the cream background as my niece, Evie, is a real girlie girl.

So have you made any Christmas Stocking this year or any year?
