Vintage Christmas Stocking (1940’s)

12/13/14  Note to those wishing to access this pattern:

The link to the pattern and the charts is posted below, in red. This is the only one that I have access to myself, and it’s the only one I’ve knitted myself.  Someone commented that she had a similar pattern, which has prompted many to post here asking for it. Apparently she has not responded to requests posted in comments.

While browsing knitting patterns, this vintage 1940’s pattern caught my eye. More than 20 years ago, my mother-in-law, Louise, knitted this stocking for my husband, using the Christmas tree and Santa motifs, and how could I not post the pattern here?!  Ours is shown on the left, and the generic  below.

Pattern can be located here: http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/christmas/1945-stocking.htm

As of today (12/13/14), this link works.

Worsted weight yarn and size 5 (US) double pointed needles.

Keepsake StockingJust found this yummy stocking posted on Red Heart’s 12 Weeks of Christmas site. It is made with 1 skein of Super Saver multicolor Primary A, and 1 of red, but I bet you have enough left over red from a previous project. Requires size 8 US (5 mm) straight needles and a crochet hook in size I-9 US (5.5 mm).
