Crochet along together as we make a Mix and Match Christmas Stocking. This basic stocking project lends itself to so many individual design elements! Make it solid or striped. Add appliques or embroidery. Add pompoms or purchased embellishments. Make coordinating stockings for the whole family!
The pattern is easy enough for advanced beginners comfortable with single crochet and double crochet. It’s free to join the Crochet Along, but you’ll need to purchase the pattern (details below).
This post contains affiliate links which may provide me a small income if you buy something, but don’t cost you anything extra.
During live broadcasts on Facebook Live, Edie will demonstrate tips to help you keep track of where you are in the pattern, offer suggestions for your own design decisions, and answer your questions.
Three or four colors of yarn will make a collection of coordinating stockings. This is a fairly quick project, so you’ll have time to make several unique designs before Christmas!

The Pattern: Mix & Match Stockings pattern is included in Christmas Crochet for Hearth, Home & Tree. Purchase the book to get the pattern. The book includes plenty of other cute Holiday decor items, so you are getting more than just a stocking pattern!
The Yarn: The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn in 1-4 colors, depending on your design. You’ll be able to get at least two stockings out of three skeins of most medium-weight yarns.
The samples shown in the photo above use Brown Sheep Nature Spun (100% wool, 245 yd [224 m] 3.5 oz [100 g].
For the Crochet Along, I’ll be using Universal Yarn Deluxe Worsted Superwash (100% superwash wool, 218 yd [200 m, 3.5 oz [100 g] in the traditional Christmas colors of 728 Pulp, 736 Christmas Red and 738 Christmas Green.
You’ll also need a crochet hook in an appropriate size, probably a US size H [5 mm], a stitch marker, a pair of scissors, and a yarn needle.
