Santa Stocking<< All Articles
In the mid-1950s my mother (Bettie Ann Passinger) ordered a Santa Stocking kit. She knitted my stocking and probably 20 more from the same pattern for family members, neighbors’ children, etc. She never made stockings for herself or my dad so in 1976 I knit one for each of them. I am carrying on her tradition of making them for family and friends and to date have knitted 17 stockings. I am a member of Ravelry and am amazed at the number of people who have also knit this same pattern.
