Day Five - It's Here - Launch Day of Kristin's Colorful Christmas Stockings - My New PDF Pattern

Thanks everyone for putting up with the Colorful Christmas Stockings Previews this week. I've had a busy week working on my manuscript re-writes and getting this Christmas Stocking Pattern in order for you all. 

Here is the last stocking in the Collection ------ it is called Stripes Both Ways. It features a two color garter stitch border. You sew the cast on and bind off edges together and then pick up and work it down traditionally.



As with all the other stockings in the new collection - you'll only need one color in a round. That's the beauty of all the designs - you'll end up with a very colorful Christmas Stocking but there is no need for stranding and following charts. 

The pattern is ready for sale NOW. Here are the specifics.... Kristin's Colorful Christmas Stockings includes five different designs. Each is a colorful design but is knit with only color in a row or round. Two of the stockings combine back and forth and circular knitting. There is one very simple cable pattern and one more advanced cable pattern. There is also one very easy striped version. Here's the cover of the pattern.
If you are new to knitting stockings, Kristin's Colorful Christmas Stockings is a great choice for you. You'll be able to increase your knitting skills as you work your way through the collection. My friend Cathy Payson, who helped me with the tech proofing, told me this is going to be her "go-to" stocking pattern now. Stockings make a great wedding or shower gift. They make nice baby gifts too. Or a housewarming gift. It's nice to build up a stock-pile to have as gifts. 

The beautiful yarn I used in the lovely color range is my Color By Kristin distributed by Classic Elite Yarns.  Here they all are hanging on our barn.


The price is $12.00 for 5 designs.

Here's some more great news - I've started a Kristin Nicholas Knitalong over on Ravelry. Come join in the fun during this Gift Knitting Season. 


You can purchase the pattern from my website HERE or over on Ravelry HERE. As always, thanks for your support of my work, my family, and our farm. 

If you are a customer in Canada or Overseas, use the Ravelry link as my website doesn't handle orders from other countries. Thanks.

Kristin, your wonderful way with colors has found yet another project to reveal itself! Each of these Christmas stockings is a beaut. I can imagine many families adding another of these for each child, and all those stockings becoming part of that family's traditions.

Bravo! Do take a bow. xo

Lovely projects, Kristin!

I've tried the discount links several times yesterday (the 9th), but they showed an error message. Maybe it was just my Mac, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone else may have had a similar problem

Thanks so much!

Also, if you can't get it to work - I can send a PAYPAL invoice and we can take care of it that way.
