Christmas Stocking - Pressure is ON

My new baby nephew would like a handmade Christmas stocking and he’d like it before his high school graduation. I’m a big fat chicken and don’t do socks, so someone please send me a wonderful, easy, affordable, non-fairisle (ok- chicken there too) pattern that would win Auntie here big points?

Oh yes, and it must fit a box of animal crackers in the toe. Our family is big on tradition. This is a must. :doh:

You might be able to find something here.
