As I mentioned in a previous post, the Minnesota Knitters’ Guild has been knitting Christmas stockings for a charity this year. I finished six stockings just in time.
I was weaving in ends and making i-cord hangers at knitting this week and everyone commented how much they loved the chevron version. So, I figured I’d whip up the pattern and share it with all of you.
When I finished writing it, I decided it would be easy enough to add the instructions for the Stripes and Dot version and the X version as well. You’ll find those as bonus charts with abbreviated patterns at the end of the full pattern.

Some notes on making these…
- Working a jogless stripe really make a big difference in how these look. Here is a nice tutorial on Craftsy on how to do one. In the pattern, I tell you which rows of the color work patterns to do this on.
- These stockings use and after-thought heel which is just like doing an after-thought or peasant thumb on mittens. Here is a Dummies tutorial on how to do one.
- You can find the pattern for the red and green striped stocking here. It is quite a bit wider than my stockings and works the heel differently.
