Leave a comment...This is an adorable Christmas stocking. There is so much detail to the item. The colors are the traditional colors of Christmas and the designer took the time to include a different color heel and toe. The cuff is the pice de rsistance. The scalloped edge is the perfect detail added. Thanks for sharing this project.

The title of this project is quick and easy. When I see that I always take a second look because I love some quick and easy projects. Looking at the picture I find it hard to believe that this would be anything quick or easy. I have my doubts about quick and easy.

Although I prefer stripes on my Christmas stockings, the simplistic look of this is drawing me in...I may just have to give this a try but with a little color blocking! I don't know what kind of trouble others have had in making this but I guess there's only one way for me to find out- make it for myself!

I really like the homespun look of this Christmas stocking. After reading the instructions, I too am a little confused over the length and may attempt to shorten the length a bit so it fits just so when hanging from my mantel. Since all single crochet stitches are used it seems this pattern should be easy to follow, even the change in colors.

My senior crochet students have been clamoring for more Christmas projects, and this one may just fit the bill. They generally want straightforward stitches like single and double crochetthey can feel intimidated by some of the more tricky stitches, even though I keep reassuring them. This stocking is challenging enough for most of them as it also requires turning the heel.

My mother and daughter both attempted to make this stocking by following the pattern and the pattern is incomplete. The stocking does not come out looking anything like the pattern.

Could someone please help with this pattern? It's a bit confusing.....

I'm a bit confused on the pattern, in the beginning it says to repeat rows 2 3 until 10 from the beginning ---- it doesn't seem like it means until you get to 10 rows, because it doesn't look near long enough -- could you please explain?

Quick and easy, that's my style. This basic Christmas stocking is just the thing to get the creative juices flowing. It truly is easy to make, and gives you plenty of leeway to add embellishments. I crocheted little holly leaves, and added them to the cuff. I know you will have as much fun with this pattern as I did.
