Here is the last Christmas Stocking pattern in the 3-Pattern Series! This one is inspired by Christmas Elfs and their fun and bright wardrobe! The seed stitch adds a bit of texture and makes this a quick mini-project to work up! See below for the other two patterns in the series.

We are nearing the end of the new Christmas pattern release so if there is any additional patterns you’d like to see make sure you let us know! Take a look at the pattern and let me know what you think!

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
