Details for the Christmas crochet stocking pattern
This is a crochet pattern for a jumbo sized Christmas stocking for the holiday season. Perfect for using as a gift sack for lots of presents.
The pattern is worked using tapestry crochet colour work and includes visual graphs as well as full, easy to follow, written colour changes for each round. I have used acrylic yarn to allow some stretch when filling.
