When we were kids my grandma knit us all stockings that matched our parents. They were red, white and green and for the most part matched. Keeping in mind that a lot of them were knit at different times and with different types of yarn, they all followed the same general theme.
A few years ago my cousins and I reached that age where marriages started and kids joined the family. Despite not having my grandma around anymore I decided to take on the tradition.
For the last four years I’ve been knitting Christmas stockings as we add to our family.
Last year in the midst of chaos, I failed our newest family member Cameron.
Despite the fact that he is now a year old, Cameron will finally get his stocking today!

Can you tell me how to get this pattern?
Hi, I sent a note last week, but am not sure if you got it. I would be happy to pay you for this pattern. I’ve made all of my families stockings from this patter and now can’t find it. I have a brand new grandson and want to make one for him. Thanks, Kaye
Hi Kaye –
I’m not sure if the pattern is still available or not. I have my grandma’s ripped out copy that I use to make our stockings. Have you tried a libray to see if they have old issues of McCalls?
Hi Kristen, I was finally able to buy a copy of this magazine on eBay. Thanks. Kaye
Hi Kristen, Could you chech your copy of this pattern? I found a copy of the 1980 McCalls winter craft magazine, on eBay, and the pattern isn’t in it. Thanks
Honestly I just have ripped out pages. I believe I was looking for the style number and that’s how I associated it with that one.
The style number for this pattern is: 3786P
I’m not sure if that helps or not 🙁
