There is so much texture in this project. The designer included photos for directional purposes and I just love the blue/green combination she used. I love the little "pops " in the alternating lines of crochet. These will quickly become family favorites. Because I like to make things individualized, each member will get one in there favorite color. That is, if I hurry.

I love these stockings. I made me and my husband one for Christmas this year. The bobble stitch was a little tricky at first, but after a few tries, I finally mastered it. I had a very hard time finding the fur yarn. None of the stores near me had any in stock and most of the online stores were sold out at the time also. I finally found an online store that had a few skeins in stock and by the time I was ready to work the top of the stocking, the fur yarn was delivered.

Adorable! Just what I need another Christmas stocking pattern. Now I am running out of time and I have to decide which one to crochet so that I will have one for everyone. Hard to decide now with the discovery of this one.

This truly is made to be a family heirloom piece. Look at the lush and expensive look that is achieved by using three (!) different types of yarn all in one project. There is even a link to watch a video tutorial on the proper way to crochet with fur yarn. I have not worked with fur yarn before, but Christmas time seems to be the best time to get started! I could do a stocking in a deep burgundy with a dark brown fur trim!
