The tradition of hanging colorful stockings by the fireplace becomes even more interesting when you knit the stockings yourself, using the colors and yarns of your choice. Knitting a stocking is similar to knitting a sock, only with different designs and patterns. Snowflakes, holly, Christmas tree and other patterns worked with the red and green color combination are commonly used for these stockings while special knitting techniques like the cable and moss stitch being quite popular as well.
