My grandmother and great aunts have knit the same Christmas stocking for all of their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. My grandmother has since retired from knitting, and I wanted to continue the tradition with one for my husband.
The pattern is a modified version of a pattern published by The American Thread Company in Star Christmas Book, No. 83 in 1951.
I've knitted a sock (yes, only one) before, but I couldn't quite remember how to turn the heel. I referenced a YouTube playlist by Very Pink Knits to jog my memory. The seven-part video series shows all the steps necessary to make their Christmas stocking pattern (which is really cute too), but is applicable to making any sock or stocking.
