Possum & Pine Christmas Stocking Pattern

Type: Pattern

Another great Christmas stocking design by Rachel Nash Law--featuring a Possum & Pines!  In the mountains of Appalachia we love our possums because:

  • they eat deer ticks!
  • don't spread rabies, and
  • are the only North American marsupial.

Yarn: The pattern requires approximately 350 yds. of  sport weight wool in white, red, grey and green and small amounts of black and pink for possum details.


  • With sport weight yarn, use Size US 5 (3.5mm) double-pointed needles (set of 5)

Notions: Locking stitch markers, contrasting color waste yarn for afterthought heel, & yarn needle.

Gauge: 23 sts and 26 rnds=4", in charted pattern, blocked.

Size: In dk weight yarn, the length is approximately 20" and the circumference is approximately 14".
