It’s me, Jessica with Nice and Knotty.
In the words of Mariah Carey: “It’s tiiiiiiiiiiiiime!”. Christmas time that is! It’s officially after Thanksgiving so trees, lights and decorations are going up. Among those decorations are stockings. I have the perfect one for your mantle this year!
This stocking pattern works up quickly, easily and beautifully! I love the various textures. It uses a bulky weight yarn which gives it a sturdy feel for filling up on Christmas Eve!
WHAT MATERIALS DO I NEED TO CROCHET THIS CHRISTMAS STOCKING?
- Bulky Weight #5 Yarn – I used Big Twist Gentle from JoAnn in the Aquamarine colorway
- J10/6mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- Stitch marker
- Camino Christmas Stocking, Paid Crochet Pattern from BobblesAndBlooms via Etsy
Bulky weight yarn is recommended for this pattern. I think you could use a different size yarn but I don’t think it would look as nice nor would it hold up as well, in my opinion.
The pattern calls for a K10.5/6.5mm size hook but I went down a size purely because I hate my K hook. It always seems to snag on yarn and the J hook has always been a favorite of mine ever since I learned to crochet so I went with it!
A few alternative options are given, which would require other materials but they are purely optional.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET a STOCKING?
I finished this stocking in just under 3 hours. The pattern worked up very fast plus the specific yarn I used was super smooth and glided on and off my hook like butter!
The pattern gives measurements of approximately 16 inches tall by 6 inches wide. Mine is smaller but I did use a smaller size hook and I know that I have a tighter tension than most. My measurements ended up being 11.5 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
This pattern has no gauge and is not necessary for the pattern. However, to give you an idea of how mine turned out, the circumference of the toe rounds is 3 inches using half double crochet.
This stocking pattern is just amazing! I love the ease of it, not to mention the speed at which it can be done in. If you need to make a whole family set of stockings, you could whip that out in a weekend!
Give this stocking a try and be sure to check out all the variation ideas given in the pattern for different looks and finishes!
