Crochet Christmas Stockings To Make For The Holidays

One of my favourite Christmas traditions is hanging up the stockings. We didn’t have a fireplace growing up so we hung them up on the banister. Every Christmas morning we would find them sitting on the sofa, taken down and filled with treats from Santa. It was always so magical and exciting. Christmas stockings can be extra personal, made to reflect the person they belong to. Classic, modern, simple, bold with texture…there are so many options to make them unique.

I’ve compiled a collection of 15 free Christmas stocking patterns to crochet. Will you be making one (or more perhaps?) Check them out below:
