I’ve been looking for Christmas stockings for me and Nick since before we were married. Since we’ve yet to find any that we liked, I decided to make Christmas stockings this year. As you know, Red Heart has become my go-to for crocheting patterns, and this was no exception. I found this Holly Berry Christmas Stocking pattern on their website and wanted to give it a try.
As with just about all of my crocheting projects, I made a few changes to the pattern. Basically, I followed the pattern, with exception of the cuff, I did not complete the holly and berries portion, just repeated the single crochet in Rows 2-11. I used I Love This Yarn, 100% acrylic, worsted weight, in three colors – Cranberry, Forest, and White. These were extremely easy to make – you crochet all of the rows, not working in the round. Then whipstitch the seams together from the top of the leg to the bottom of the toe, so there is a seam in the back of the leg.
We now have stockings hanging from our mantle, awaiting Christmas day.
