Crochet Some Christmas Stockings

On this page are the colorful Christmas Stockings that were in the magazine. There are several different ones with all the instructions to make them. Make them and hang them for all to see! To fill for someone special!

If your childhood memories include waking up on Christmas morning to discover a stocking filled to the brim with dozens of little gifts and candies, you'll understand why the most popular patterns are for handmade stockings.

Even if you're lacking a fireplace, the family's stockings can be hung from a staircase banister, from the TV antenna or from a curtain rod in the window.
