Using regular worsted weight yarn, a handful of colors and the puff stitch, you too can make your own Holly Jolly Holiday Crochet Stocking. This easy crochet Christmas pattern is available in two sizes, regular and large, so it's perfect for any member of the family. The colors are customizable too, so stick with a traditional holiday theme or go with the recipient's favorite hues - this holiday crochet stocking pattern will look so cute either way! This Christmas crochet pattern is also a good way to practice color changes and carrying your yarn on the inside. 

Special Instructions:
-The beginning chain does not count as a stitch.
-Start each round in the same stitch as the beginning chain until you get to the cuff.
-Join each round by slip stitching in the first stitch, not the beginning chain.
-Carry the yarn on the inside of the work between rounds.

I made this as part of a Christmas crochet-a- long. This was my first CAL and it was great fun. So encouraging to be part of a group and see everyone's comments. Also it was a good stash busting project. I already had the ivory and dark red, so only had to buy the green. Bottom line join a CAL -- it really motivates you to finish!

I like the wavy stripes of these stockings! It's a different take on a classic design.
