Patterns for Christmas Stockings
Finding a good Christmas stocking pattern isn't that hard to do, and depending on the commitment you have to a project, there's a Christmas stocking pattern out there for everybody, whether it's for knitting, crochet, cross stitch, sewing or needlepoint you're wanting to work with.
One great aspect of Christmas stocking patterns is you can find a number of them for free, although there are a lot of them out there you can purchase as well, with some being very detailed for those looking for a challenge.
As you know, each type of medium you choose to make a Christmas stocking ends up with a different type of look, and each one has its own strengths and weaknesses.
For example, if you want some very high quality images, normally you would choose needlepoint and cross stitch as way to achieve that. Even so, there are exceptions to every rule, and depending on the pattern your find or choose, you can get some great looking Christmas stockings using any type of medium you choose or prefer to use.

Unusual Santa Stocking Pattern
This is a very unusual Santa Christmas stocking, and while not seemingly as nice looking as the others, really is an interesting design. It's the unique feel of the stocking I like, and it seems to hearken back to days of yore. It's difficult to see the reindeer below Santa's feet because of the brown background, which was fascinating to me because of the way it was worked in with the lighter colors to highlight it. And those smaller snowflakes give the hint of the time of year and wonderful holiday season. I like this one.
