Update your holiday decor with traditional hand knitted Christmas stockings made from patterns by Mary Maxim. Your hand knit Christmas stocking can be PERSONALIZED for everyone in your family! Mary Maxim published knitting patterns for Christmas Stockings in the 1950’s. Thousands of families have cherished the Mary Maxim stockings and passed the wonderful traditional Christmas stockings down through generations. Our Christmas stockings are made the old fashion way, each one is knit by hand using high quality wool yarns. Our Christmas stockings are generously sized. They measure (flat) 7 inches in width and 24 inches from toe to cuff.** All of our Christmas stockings point in the same direction: like an L. Sorry but we cannot accommodate requests for the toes to point in the other direction. We use the same red, green and white yarns so you can mix and match any of the Christmas stockings you see in our collection. However we cannot guarantee that the dye lots will be identical from previous or future Christmas stocking purchases.
