They are created from the Santa Stocking pattern, using Bernat Happy Holidays yarn in Evergreen Glitter, Rich Red Glitter, and White Sparkle, with an H hook. I like the subtle sparkle that the silver metallic thread adds to the stockings. Since the pattern was one of those “work even for x inches” patterns, I made my stockings much longer then the pattern called for. I used about a half-skein of red and a half-skein of green, and about a quarter-skein of white for both cuffs. Other then that, and subbing yarn, I followed the pattern as written. Between Hubby and I, we managed to cross-stitch the recipients’ names over the white single-crochet cuffs.
