Easy Crochet Stocking Ornament

December 2, 2013


Easy Crochet Stocking Ornament

A couple of weeks ago, while searching for a crochet pattern, I unearthed a hand written pattern dated Christmas 2000 with a note “adapted from an ornament on Mom and Dad’s tree.”

I had a vague memory of what the ornament was, but decided to pull out some yarn and work it up.

As you do!

This makes a 5-sided Granny Square, which is then folded in half to create a stocking. It’s SUPER EASY and only takes a teeny tiny bit of yarn.

I will not take credit for the original pattern but will share my reverse-engineered version.

Add it to your Ravelry queue:


You will need:

 

  • H hook
  • small amount of worsted weight yarn

I made mine from worsted yarn, but because gauge isn’t so important here, you could use another weight and a smaller hook and it would work just fine.

Start: Ch 4, sl st to form ring (sorry, no picture for this step!)

Hanging chain: Ch 15, sl st in sc at start of ch. Finish off. Embellish as desired!

*For a smaller ornament, finish off after row 2.

**If you’d prefer, you can also whipstitch the sides together.

For added variety, make each round in a different color, add pompoms, bells or buttons for even more cuteness!

    I had to smile when I saw these cute stockings…they are like the ones I made years ago for our Christmas tree (I’d put mini candy canes in them as treats for the kids). Thanks for sharing…and bringing back such fun memories :)
