Decorate a Christmas stocking with crochet
Mince pies, a real Christmas tree and a handmade Christmas stocking left out on Christmas Eve. It’s the simple things that make Christmas magical.
This Christmas stocking is made from red felt and features a crochet cuff and a crochet snowflake on each side. You crochet the snowflakes first, hand stitch them to the pre-cut felt stockings and then stitch the two stocking pieces together, either by hand or machine. Finally, you crochet the cuff and hand stitch it in place.
