Spicy colors, simple embroidery, and whimsical pom-poms come together in this giant holiday stocking. The designer started with a basic sock pattern and scaled it large enough to hold any number of goodies. When you've emptied the stocking down to the toe, turn it upside down and pull it over your ears-it's also a woolly hat!
