It seems like the easiest and cheapest way to get this done would be with duplicate stitching. You buy a chunky knitted sweater in a color you like, then using a needle you "sew" stitches on to make the words.
This is the best I can do!
I can do this. I've made similar stocking before.
Amazon has some [kits available](https://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Stockings-Knitting-Kits-Snowflake/dp/B00K0005IM) that are somewhat close to yours, but I also have a blank canvas that I can add a design to and elongate. The kits are useful because they come with all the yarn needed and because it's Amazon it tends to be faster.
Either way, you would probably be looking at, at lease $20 for yarn. Then there is compensation for time, and shipping to you. I'm in PHX so flat rate shipping is about $9.
Did you find someone yet? Based on the photos, it looks like it could be made of cotton, so something like this might work out really well.

You are much better off buying one from Amazon than commissioning one. Otherwise, the yarn alone would likely be as expensive as the total price of a new one. And that does even begin to cover the knitter time or shipping the finial product.
Thank you for the reply.
Price range withing a reasonable price, yet i know its custom so $20-$30 ish (i guess size would change according to meet pricing guideline) or open to suggestions...
