I also like how you make these. You can do one part at a time which means you can take it along and work on it anywhere. I love that kind of project. Sometimes I pick the grand kids up at school and have to wait. This would be a great take along.

I must be highly ignorant, I can't figure out these instructions. It says start with main color, but they all show the CC at each end.

Domenica See the comment from Princess6860504. Evidently you sew the toe and the top on after you have sewn the striped part.

This project is just about as easy as you can get. I appreciate that the pattern is available in three different sizes, so the crafter can make a variety of stockings to match members of the family. These would look so cute hanging from a mantle place or even as a garland on a banister. I like the clean symmetry, too.

I used to knit Christmas stockings until I found this crochet pattern. The stocking are lovely and work up very quickly. I have made plain and striped varieties and am very pleased with the result. I drssed up the plain stockings with crocheted appliques of stars and trees. The results are lovely!

I like the fact that this "Waiting for Santa" stocking is worked in four pieces and then sewn together. It makes it more simple to understand. I think of how many colorways you can make this in. You can color match the stockings to your personal decor! Or, just leave them as is with the classic Christmas colors.
