UK-based knitting expert Lauren Aston 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 $50 (or 50 UK pounds), you can be your own elf and knit this cozy, chunky stocking. (Or you can buy a finished one from Lauren for around $78 or the pattern only for $14). The kit comes with everything you need to make this stocking, including the leather strap (see below). Lauren notes that the required skill level to make this is "intermediate," estimating that it will take about 40 minutes.
