Crochet Christmas Stocking. I was looking everywhere for the perfect Christmas stockings for my family this year. I also wanted ones that were different colors but the same make. There were multiple options that I found and liked and did not break the bank. But the moment I went to buy them, they were sold out.
So, I decided to research crochet stocking patterns. I figured instead of buying an expensive one, why not make one myself? Click here for the pattern I used.
I had taught myself how to crochet a few years ago when I wanted to make a baby blanket for my firstborn son. My granny would always be crocheting and I wish I had learned from her. But this is still my way of feeling close to her even when she is no longer here.

Here is the story of why the stockings were even made in the first place. If you read my previous post, you would know we are currently living in a fourth-story apartment, waiting for our forever home to be built. This also means that all our “stuff” is in storage, including our Christmas decorations.
Before Christmas, I went to the storage unit thinking I would be able to get the decorations out. But of course, the tub that I needed was all the way in the back and on the bottom. So, we decided it would be easier to just buy new decorations for our tree and apartment.
(Maybe next year we will have a house and can get two Christmas trees decorated. Because we now have enough decorations for two trees.)
Since we could not get our decorations out of storage, it meant we didn’t have our Christmas stockings. I also was on the hunt for more neutral-looking ones. Since we have a giraffe pattern one and a Penn State one.
I liked the speckled one that the pattern uses, so I made two of them. I had black yarn laying around from an old project and decided an eggshell color would work well with them also.
They turned out amazing and I love them even more because I made them myself. Crochet Christmas Stockings.
