Can this same pattern be used to make full size stocking? ?

My mom actually made these little granny square Christmas stockings way back in the late 70s and early to mid 80s. So these have been around for a while. I have found that patterns that are actually useful and easy to make tend to stick around the longest and like they say everything old is new again.

I would like to make a set of a dozen of these and box them up to give as gifts. With such little yarn used per granny square, I can get a lot of bang for my buck. A color combo in off white, gold, and mauve would make them appropriate for a Victorian Christmas theme. Choose bright white, silver, and a pastel blue for a Disney Frozen theme, or just any icicle and snow theme.

This stocking is such a great idea! The pattern is very easy to follow, with plenty of pictures too, if you need them. I love making ornaments, either for my own tree or to give as gifts. This pattern will be a great addition to my collection of ornament patterns!

THESE ARE JUST TOO CUTE!!!!!!! What a fabulous idea! I don't think I've seen such a cute fold over idea since the flower into butterflies!!! LOVE THIS!!!! ASC

For me, this is one of those "why didn't I think of that" patterns. It is such a great idea! You can change the order of the colors for variation, you can stick candy canes in them, or even use them for a money gift, fill them with candy, or decorate a gift with them. Straight up they are adorable "as is" hanging on the tree.

I totally agree Aunt Karolyn! ASC P.S. LOVE how you spell your name! )

This project is a nice use of the ubiquitous granny square. The author has included a number of photos as well as clear directions. The only alteration to the basic square is the during the third round where additional stitches are used to form the boot portion of the pattern. It can be used as is for an ornament, or tuck a miniature candy cane inside for a special treat.

I make this one. It popped into my head several years ago. I make a lot of things that have no patterns. The last row of the square you will need to round the heel. So I suggest to make about 5 single crochet. The next set of 3 dc is the same. The toe part I always do 1 sc;1hdc;1dc;3tr;1dc;1hdc;1sc you will do another set of 3 dc and do the other side of the heel part the same. then when you sew it together or sc crochet it together fold in half with the middle tr as the center stitch Hope this is more helpful than confusing. God bless you and keep you.

i think you should get the full pictures that you show in this pattern, on how to finish and fold the square, i cann't get it to print out

I would like the pattern for the Granny Square Stocking Ornament but the pattern is always blocked. How can I get it. Velda O'Neal
