Fireplace Christmas Stockings
"The Fireplace Christmas Stocking is a fun take on a crochet Christmas stocking. Using the block stitch in the round, we create a lovely pin stripe that adds a lot of fun and personality to the stocking. You can create these stockings in any color so they match your decorations, your favorite colors, or whatever you like! The best part of these crochet Christmas stockings is that they're great for stash busting. All of the crochet Christmas stockings you see in the photos were made completely with scraps of yarn from other projects. As long as you have 2 ounces each of two colors in a medium (4) weight yarn, you'll be good to go! "
