Adaptations to a Stocking Pattern

This post is part of the Christmas in July~Hanukkah in the Heat Blog Hop Special Event.

I shared some of my favorite Christmas patterns last Christmas season and this was one of the ones I shared. A customer wanted stockings and when I was sending her pictures for options, she fell in love with this one but wanted it longer and wanted names at the top. So I made some pattern adaptations and decided to share what I did and my results! I still need to make 2 more for my customer and will be starting on them soon. If you would like to order some, I am offering a discount for orders placed by July 24th.

You can buy the pattern here from Schere Wade, who is the designer. I absolutely enjoyed this pattern. It is well written with a diagram for the layout and works up fairly quickly. It was really easy for me to take this on the go and work on it a little bit at a time. Here is her original design.
