I have some patterns, they are Jean Greenhowe's Mini Christmas Stockings...which says it is a free pattern. If you want a copy send me your email by Private Message and I will email back. I also have a crochet pattern for some if you want that too.

Use worsted yarn, size 10 (US) needles - to make a smaller stocking, use a smaller needle, like 5 (experiment with the size you want the stocking to be. I made up this pattern years ago and use it every year.)

Cast on 18 sts in white,
knit garter stitch for 4 rows
change to red, green or Christmas varigated
Do stockinette stitch for 18 rows

Then:
Knit 7, increase 1 stitch in next 4 stitches, knit 7
Purl next row
Knit 8, increase 1 stitch in next 6 stitches, knit 8
Purl 1 row
Knit 1 row
Purl 1 row
Bind off
Note: sometimes on the last K1 and P 1 rows I change the
yarn to white to correspond to the cuff. Use your imagination
to change colors. Sew up, make a loop to hang.

I am a CESA Foster Grandparent in our elementary school (10 years) and every year I make about 100 and give them as Christmas gifts to the kids in the classes I am working in (mostly 3rd grade). I put in a Christmas pencil and a small candy cane in each stocking. The kids love this!

Size 8 or 10 needles, Worsted: red, green white or Christmas varigated yarn. Cast on 18 stitches in white, knit 4 rows. Change yarn to red, green, Christmas variegated - whatever color you want. Do stockinet stitch for 16 rows. Knit 7 sts., increase in next 4 sts., knit 7. Purl next row. Knit 8 sts., increase in next 6 sts., knit 8 sts. Purl next row. Knit next row. Bind off Sew seam. Make a loop at top to hang on tree. I make a lot of stockings using lot of different color combinations. Use whatever size needle you want, actually. Experiment til you find what you like.
