Bernat Christmas Stockings
Bernat Yarns was founded in Massachusetts by Emile Bernat in the early 1900's. His company quickly grew to be one of the most respected yarn companies of the 20th century. During this time they published hundred's (perhaps thousands?) of knitting patterns and knitting kits.
One of their most popular knitting products was their Christmas stocking knitting kits. The Bernat Christmas stocking kits came complete with a detailed knitting pattern, yarn, and embellishments like beads and sequins. To many families, the Bernat Christmas stockings are treasured family heirlooms. It was a tradition for the knitter in the family to knit a Christmas stocking for new members of the families like babies and newly weds.
