In 1966 my mother made all nine members of my immediate family Christmas stockings from a pattern that she had found in the Women's Day December, 1966 issue. As new members joined the family she would always make them a new stocking. At one point she made copies of the pattern, and gave them to the knitters in the family, so they could also make the stockings for their growing families.

Fast forward to December 2013. Recently my sister asked me if I still had my copy of the Christmas stocking pattern. She wanted it to make a stocking for her youngest son's fiancee. I couldn't recall where my copy had gotten to, I figured I had either lost or tossed it. Seemed that all the copies my mother had made were either lost or tossed also. I looked online to see if I could maybe find it there, no luck. Yesterday I decided to look through some old paperwork on the chance it might have gotten mixed in. There it was, a little worn but still legible.

The reason I'm here is to respond to this 2005 thread on "How to find an old pattern?" http://bit.ly/1fnSfKE Sadly the people posting are no longer active in this forum, so I wont be able to contact the threads author to let her know I have the pattern she is looking for.

I've decided to post the pattern here anyway. It needs to be pulled out of the past and made available to all you 21st century knitters.

I think this is the most beautiful Christmas stocking ever. I've always loved my stocking because it's extra big, so it's able to hold many yummy Christmas goodies. I'm hopeful that whoever makes this stocking will love making it, and will enjoy it through the years as much as my family have enjoyed ours.

I guess I'm confused. I don't see where the pattern is? And the link at the bottom of the post doesn't work. I'd love to see this. Thanks.

Sorry about that!!! I wan't able to post a clear picture, so I had to go with a link. Here's a new link.

Do a "right key click", then clink on "Open image in new tab". You should be able to magnify the pattern to get a better view of it. Or you can hit "save image as" and copy it to your computer.

Hope this works. If not, let me know.

Hi,

They look really amazing and I can't believe how many have been made, I wonder if its a record for the one pattern being used so much.

Knit in peace and harmony.

I've knitted Christmas stockings for my children using a KnitPicks pattern that some of you might like. You can see it here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/jeanne-p/modern-classics-christmas-stockings-kit-3

This is a link to my Ravelry projects where my name is jeanne-p.
I love this pattern (actually there are two patterns to choose from or to interchange parts of.) It's not terribly huge but you could make larger stockings by using heavier yarn and going up in needle size....

How I loved Woman's Day magazine in the 1960s! Full of inspiring projects to make! I made lots of soft toys for my children from their patterns; sewing was more my "thing" in those days.
