Nutcracker Pictures

NOTE: I've already accepted all the custom orders I'm able to complete for Christmas 2014, although I'm still able to ship in-stock items. Please note that I do NOT have picture stockings in stock. Feel free to contact me with any questions. If you’re interested in getting on my waiting list for 2015, please let me know.

Here are examples of custom Christmas stockings that I've knit with nutcracker pictures on them. The pictures can also be interpreted as toy soldiers, of course, since nutcrackers are most often modeled after soldiers. Nutcrackers are more closely associated with Christmas, however, thanks to the famous ballet.

toy soldier on green background

This toy soldier is standing at attention with rifle by his side. There is some particularly nice detail on the uniform.

toy soldier on dark red background

Here is the same toy soldier on a different background, with sequined snowflakes. The overall stocking design is more complex than the previous version.

toy soldier on dark red background, alternate view

Alternate view of the same stocking.

drummer boy on red background

This is a wonderful drummer boy design that I've knitted in several variations. This one is bordered by sprigs of holly with white bead "berries".

drummer boy with different layout

Here is the same drummer boy on a stocking with a very different layout.

drummer boy on white background

This is another version of the drummer boy, with a plain white background.

stocking with trees, soldiers, and train

A classic 3-stripe design, with pictures chosen for the customer's grandson. This tiny soldier is very colorful.

stocking with snowmen, soldiers, and reindeer

Another tiny soldier for small spaces, this one is shorter than the one in the previous stocking. He's equally colorful, though, with nice detail on the jacket.

stocking with soldier, drums, and train

This miniature soldier is a bit bigger than the previous two, and has more clearly defined arms and legs. The gold trim and blue trousers are common to many nutcracker pictures.

Clara with nutcracker doll

This custom design was created to represent a scene from the classic ballet. The recipient's name really is Clara!

toy soldier picture on striped stocking

This was created to match the style, but not the pictures, of other family stockings. The cursive name is quite unusual. The toy soldier is very British in appearance.


brown-haired nutcracker on blue background

A classic style nutcracker, this one has hair and eyes to match the recipient, and specially chosen gifts on the foot.

blond nutcracker on blue background

A companion to Hunter's stocking, the blond hair and blue eyes match the little boy receiving the stocking.

nutcracker with snowflakes on green background

The classic nutcracker design is dressed up with snowflake sequins, sequins on his uniform and belt, and face, and a candy cane in hand.

nutcracker picture on blue stocking

The same design yet again, on a lighter blue background and with a little metallic thread added.

nutcracker picture on green stocking

This nutcracker picture is very similar to the preceding ones, but the proportions are different as well as the foot design. This stocking is modeled after existing family stockings that the customer wanted to match.
