This Christmas Stocking in Bubble Stitch Knitting Pattern creates a whimsical textured holiday decoration with super bulky yarn.
This pattern creates a sturdy and substantial piece knitted flat on a long circular needle with super bulky yarn. The bigger the yarn, the bigger the knitting needles, the faster it knits up.
Additionally, there are no complicated heel and toe techniques. Instead, we easily shape the stocking foot with a series of basic increase and decrease stitches. Knit up these stockings to make beloved gifts for years to come.
