Snowdrift Christmas Stocking: Quick & Easy Crochet Pattern
"If you love to crochet holiday decorations, give this Christmas stocking a try! The Snowdrift Christmas Stocking is made from the toe up in joined rounds. The stocking is worked in one piece, then the heel is made and joined last. This is a quick and easy crochet pattern because simple stitches are used: chain, single crochet, double crochet, slip stitch. Rounds of repeating stitches alternate to create the solid and open fabric that look a bit like a snowdrift on a winter day. An interesting feature in this pattern is that it can be worked in so many different color combinations: solid, variegated, stripes, a new color for every round – each stocking you make can be totally unique! In addition to the color, you can choose a yarn you already have on hand, or one you really love, to work up a stocking. The yarn weight will change the overall measurement of the stocking, which can be a really fun way to work up various sizes, like these samples I made: Worsted yarn: 11” around (5.5” flat) x 15” long Super Bulky yarn: 17.5” around (8.25” flat) x 25.5” long This Snowdrift Christmas Stocking is a great design to crochet because: You can use yarn you already have on hand! These make great gifts for the holiday season! These projects use very little yarn, so they’re great stash-busters! You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: Yarn and color choice, joined rounds, simple stitch and round repeats, shaping, seaming pieces together, finishing techniques & more!"
