2011 Christmas Stocking Round-up Part 2

The fourth Christmas stocking I made this year (Dec. 12-18) was for new Nephew HH.
On this branch of our family, all the grandkids get stockings to match Grammy's, so it was another candy cane pattern. This is one of the Mary Maxim patterns that isn't in a booklet. This is the pattern all my immediate family has, and I think of it as the original. I've also probably made more of this pattern than any other, although the Rudolph head might be tied.

Then I realized that I had one more stocking to make. I got a new step-father-in-law this September and I forgot to adjust my mental list of Stockings Needed to include him. So, a little late, but within the "12 Days of Christmas," I finished the fifth and final stocking for the year.
This one doesn't match my mother-in-law's stocking. She has a dove, and that just didn't seem to fit her new beau, a lifetime member of the NRA. I picked another pattern with a blue background and a white-with-green picture -- this is called Mr. Snowman and is in the first Mary Maxim Christmas stocking booklet.

There we have it, the 2011 set of Christmas stockings. I don't yet know of any that will be needed in 2012, but I don't really expect to have a no-stocking year. That would be too weird.


  1. I'm looking for the Candy Cane stocking. I have all the patterns but lost this one. Do you know where I can get the pattern.
    Thank you,


  2. Hello - please let me know if you would be able to share (or sell) any Mary Maxim stocking patterns. I would love to carry on the tradition of my deceased mother's gifts to her now grandchildren. Thank you so very much.

  3. Hello, I am also looking for this candy cane stocking pattern. My Grandma made it for my sister, and now she wants my Aunt to make her another one. I can't seem to find the pattern anywhere, I even talked with someone at Mary Maxim. Would you know where I could find it, or be willing to share/sell? Thanks!

  4. Everyone in our family has one of these stockings and lost touch with the lady who made them. Is there any way to buy this pattern? Or can you tell me where I can?
