Jolly Holiday Stocking – Free Crochet Pattern Review
This year, I decided to surprise my family with handmade Christmas Stockings. I made one each for my daughter, my husband, and me. If you’re reading this, dear husband, surprise! You still have to wait to get your stocking, though. 😉 On Christmas Eve, we can hang them up right before bedtime. Then, when not a creature is stirring (except for probably a mouse), Santa can work his magic.
Having never made a stocking before, I was looking for an easy, yet fun pattern. The “Jolly Holiday Stocking” by Janaya Chouinard fit the bill perfectly. The pattern is easy to follow, written well, and includes a picture for the tricky part of working around the heel. Even though the pattern is made using 3 colors, you’ll be carrying the unused colors in the back of the stocking, so there are very few ends to weave in once you finish – hurray!

Here’s the one I made for my daughter – same colors as “mommy’s”, but a sparkle white. Hard to tell the difference between the two in photos.
This is the one I made for myself. I used a combination of Caron One Pound yarn and Red Heart Super Saver – both economical, sturdy yarns, perfect for a project like this.
Here is the size large stocking I made for my husband. Big daddy stocking!
