Crochet Christmas Stocking

…and a New Baby

A modern twist on a classic crochet Christmas Stocking design and just perfect to hang from the fireplace.

Crochet Stocking

The hexagon and diamond motif have a snowflake centre with raised picot edges giving a slightly 3D appearance.

You will need up to 200m each of main colour (MC) and contrasting colour (CC), an appropriately sized crochet hook and a needle for neatening ends.

MC and CC are used throughout to indicate how the example was worked. You may, however, substitute different colours, as desired, to produce a variety of different effects.

The example was worked in Patons Smoothie DK in White (MC), Patons Smoothie DK in grey (CC).

Each hexagon measures approximately 4” (10cm) across the widest part and the final stocking measures approximately 16” (41cm) vertical drop length.

So, what about the new baby?  It’s probably a good job my hubby doesn’t RSS feed this blog or he’d be having a heart attack round about now 😉

The baby is in fact a new Rav group Bowtykes and I have put together – dc2tog.  If you have any questions about either of our patterns, or just want to pop in and find out something, we hope that this group will make it easier for you to do it 🙂  As well as offering pattern support, we hope to run some fun crochet alongs, give away some free stuff and have our latest patterns tested.  Please pop in and say hi 🙂
