Some collect snow globes, snowmans, or santas. Not me, I collect stockings. Since having my oldest child, my grandmother has given us stockings every year. I have a build up of them in my Christmas decorations. So this last box was just perfect. I’ve found a few more stocking patterns free on the web I think you would like as well so lets start.
A set of these hanging in front of the fireplace would be adorable. Especially if you could find lettering small enough to add names. The colors she used on this is so fitting for the name. I see those colors and instantly think cabin in the mountains. I do have to agree with the designer, “the neutral colors make the ribbing on the cuff stand out”.
To make this beautiful stocking you will need your 6 mm crochet hook and bulky #5 weight yarn in 2 colors. The gauge isn’t critical for stockings but she does have it listed. This pattern is made up with basic US crochet terminology and is pretty simple. Stocking is worked from the cuff to the toe. She does list very detailed pictures to help on certain sections; also a video to help with the technique for a stocking.
This stocking reminds me of the flannel sheets my grandmother put on every single bed in her giant house. You know the ones; with the deer, cabin, and snowflake. Its such a traditional design I love it. I just might have to make me a set of 4 of this one as well. She does list another pattern of hers for a green colored stocking that goes well with this one.
To make this stocking you will need 2 colors in a worsted weight yarn. She uses Vanna’s Choice in Scarlet and White; great red choice in my opinion. You will also need your 5 mm crochet hook and of course scissors and your tapestry needle. This pattern is made up using US crochet terminology.
You all know that I am a sucker for anything plaid. So when I saw this stocking from a designer, I follow on multiple social medias, I knew that I had to use this one on the blog. I can see this stocking made in any color you can think of and it would still be festive because of the plaid. This is listed as a skill level of intermediate. You must be familiar with the plaid technique.
To make this beauty she uses a bulky weight yarn in 3 colors. She used Paintbox Simply Chunky. I’ve never heard of that brand of yarn, click on the name and it will take you to a page to buy some. You will need your 6 mm crochet hook and of course your tapestry needle. This is made using basic US Crochet Terminology.
I came across a few socking patterns that were made with stripes. This one was the best looking one I came across. It just screams Christmas and for that reason it has made it to our blog. The colors she used for the stripes are perfect. This pattern is listed as a medium skill level.
To make this stocking you will need a worsted weight yarn; approximately 80 yards in white, and 40 yards in each of the 3 colors for the stripes. You will of course need your trusty 6 mm hook. She says she used her 5 mm but would go up a hook size to make the stocking a little bigger. This is made using basic US crochet terminology.
