I am seeing mixed reviews about this project. I think that these tiny stockings are adorable. I would probably use crochet thread or fingerling yarn just to add to the idea of a mini stocking. I love the traditional Christmas colors but I will probably use something that is less traditional to display on my tree this year.

I have been crocheting for over 50 years and thought this would be a great project I could use them as decorations on the tree or on presents. Boy was I wrong. This pattern needs help. I must have tried it three or four times. I am stubborn! But it just isn't a workable project.

I guess the pictures shown above are not a true representation of the finished stocking. I would much rather use a fingering weight yarn myself. Personally, I think the pattern itself could have been better written. Maybe someone could contact her and ask for a revised pattern to post here.

I made one of these tiny stockings last year. The instructions were easy to follow and understand but the finished product did not turn out so well. I made mine with worsted weight yarn and it is much too thick for this small project. Also, the shape looked weird and not at all like the one shown in the picture.

The pattern is very easy to follow and they work up in under an hour, but they are an awkward shape and size. They are more of a narrow tube with a lob sided bulb at the bottom. They do have a bit of a stocking shape, but the toe foot-toe area is very short and the leg is long and narrow. My finished size was 6 inches tall x 4 inches wide (at foot, and just under 3 inches wide (at leg).

The full pattern for this can actually be found at this link https//www.favecrafts.com/Crochet-for-Christmas/Li == ttle-Stocking-Ornaments-from-Red-Heart-Yarn on the sister site for the all free crochet patterns site. These are very cute little stockings and take so little yarn to make that you can whip up several is no time using just your stash.

What makes this version of a Christmas Stocking ornament so different is the delicate trim row on top. I do with the author had included more photos or illustrations, especially for Row 2 which forms the hanging loop. It actually forms a slot to pull the yarn, chain, cord, etc. through rather than becomes the loop itself. A bit confusing and hard to visualize for a beginner. Otherwise a nice project.

When the kids were younger, I used to hang Christmas stocking by the window. But at that time, I was just using a stocking made of fabric because crochet was not in my consciousness yet. I already knew how to crochet but I didn't I can produce various stuff by crocheting them. Now that I'm very much into crocheting. I want to make these cute stockings for my granddaughter's delight. Aside from green and white, you can also do this in red, yellow, blue, and maroon.
