Another year, another Christmas stocking. This one was made mostly in Jamaica, with parts done in Chicago airport, and finishing touches made at home in DC. It’s becoming a Christmas Eve tradition for me to sit in my in-law’s living room after Christmas Eve dinner furiously weaving in ends and adding the name to the cuff.

This year’s stocking is for my new niece, Genevieve. She got a puppy to match my sister’s kitten. Next year’s will be for my next niece or nephew, who is due any second now. I believe I’m the only one in my family hoping there aren’t any more babies in 2014. Really. One stocking is enough knitting for me for the year.

This is probably the most difficult design I’ve done, although I may just not be remembering how difficult others were. There were a lot of color changes. So many. Too many.

I think it came out really cute, though.

    I love this pattern! I’m actually trying to track it down. This is the same stocking my grandmother made for my mother. I am trying to collect the Mary Maxim patterns she used as my grandmother has passed away but these patterns weren’t with her knitting collection. I want to carry on the tradition and make more as we make additions to the family. Would you be able to help me?

    I too would love to have this pattern to be able to make this myself. Someone on Etsy is selling Mary Maxim stockings, but the joy of the stocking (in part) is the time and devotion put into making it. If there is anything you can do to help, that would be great. That puppy face is just magical. Nice work as well!

    I would love to have this pattern. I looked on the link to Mary maxim and it’s not there. Is there a way to email me the written pattern or at least a graph pattern? I need it asap. Thank you.

    I can’t find it on that website either! If you have the pattern, can you pretty please email it to me too? :)
