Santa's Stocking

Image of Santa's Stocking Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This stocking is made almost in the same way a knit pair of socks is made. The cuff is made first, then the leg, then the heel flap. Then the foot is formed then the toe. This stocking can also double as a boot sock to actually wear! This fits me! I have a size woman's 7 foot! I think it looks and works much better as a Christmas stocking though.
