Join me here on the blog beginning Friday, November 18, for a free Christmas Stocking Crochet Along (CAL).
We’ll be using your choice of worsted weight yarn to create a basic Christmas stocking. From there you can use your imagination (and some inspirational photos) to create one-of-a-kind stockings for everyone in your family.
What will the stocking look like?
Well, it’s a mystery CAL, so I can’t show you! I can give you some hints, however. The graphic above is a close-up of the stocking itself. You’ll be embellishing it to suit your style. You can get an idea of my “holiday” aesthetic from the images from Christmas Crochet for Hearth, Home & Tree shown here.
What if I’m not a confident crocheter?
If you are not an experienced crocheter, you can still do this! Just make sure you’ve mastered single crochet and I’ll walk you through all the other bits, including recognizing the ends of rounds, turning a heel, and shaping a toe.
How does the CAL work?
Come back here on for the written pattern and video. The pattern will be on the blog and the video will be on YouTube. Links and embedded video will be included as the pattern is released.
Friday, November 18: Pattern, Chart and Video
Tuesday, November 22: Pattern and Video
Tuesday, November 29: Pattern, Video, and Inspirational Photos
We’ll connect here on the blog. You can leave comments and ask questions, and I’ll check in frequently to help you through any challenges.
Everything will be remain available after the CAL finishes, so don’t worry if you join a little late, or don’t keep up with me.
Is it too late to get started?
Absolutely not! The Crochet Along will take only two weeks, so there is plenty of time to make a stocking and have it ready before Christmas. Of course, you can take as much time as you need to finalize your stocking.
This is not a last-minute project! You do have time to make one or more stockings!
What materials will I need?
The materials I’m using are listed below, but feel free to use whatever yarn(s) you have on hand. Note: Buying the supplies from the links below will give me a small percent back of the purchase price, at no additional cost to you.
- 2 skeins Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted, CYC #4, (85% wool/15% mohair, 4 oz/113 g, 190 yd/173 m) in color M-140 Aran
- Small amounts of other colors of worsted weight yarn
- Size I-9 (5.5 mm) crochet hook, or the size that will give you a nice firm-but-not-too-stiff single crochet fabric with your yarn
- Stitch marker
- Optional: Purchased holiday embellishments, like small felt ornaments, appliques, jingle bells, etc.
Let’s prepare for the holidays together!
The entire crochet along is complete. You can see all the parts here:

How will we get the pattern?

Count me in 🙂 sounds like a fun project and I need to make something for my new great grandson.
This looks like fun.
Hope you’ll join me!
As I am in England I think it will be Aran yarn here is that right? Would love to do this
Sounds like fun…
Yes, aran yarn will work. You may have to play with your hook size a bit, but I’ll discuss gauge on Friday.
I can’t wait!
Can’t wait to get started
You should be able to get the pattern, and the video link should be working now. If it’s not, just let me know!
How do I get the link to the chart and pattern? I seem not to be able to see if on this page.
This is the permalink address. If you still don’t see it, email me and we’ll figure it out together.
I’m going to give it a try. I’ve got gifts to finish but hope to be able to follow along.
