We all tried to outdo each other again, this time with Christmas stockings. The yarn of choice was Patons Classic Wool or Decor. Below is the basic pattern and our variations.

Finished size: About 18” (46 cm) from cuff to heel; about 14” (35.5 cm) from heel to toe.
Notions: Crochet hook; markers; stitch holders; tapestry needle.

This pattern comprises a basic stocking pattern with a series of variations by Ann Budd, Nancy Disney, Amy Clarke, Susan Strawn Bailey, Jillian Moreno, Jennifer Nastu, Marilyn Murphy, and Judith Durant.

NOTE, the errata is not for the pattern instructions:

The lace trim on Ann Budd’s stocking (page 78) was adapted from Lace from the Attic, not The Lacy Knitting of Mary Schiffmann as stated in the article.
