The stockings were hung by the chimney with ... flair! Thanks to UK-based knitting expert Lauren Aston. She makes giant, chunky, knitted awesome things and even creates kits so you, too, can make giant, chunky, knitted awesome things. Like this stocking.
For about $47 (or 51 UK pounds), you can be your own elf and knit this pom pom stocking. The kit comes with Merino wool yarn in the color of your choice along with instructions, and you can also purchase the "add-On kit ... to help you stitch words, embellishment, pompoms, tassels or fringing." Lauren notes that the required skill level to make this garland is "intermediate," estimating that the main stocking will take about 2 hours to make.
