Crochet Stocking for Chloe

For Chloe's 1st Christmas


Stocking adapted from
free pattern from Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread - Teeny Tiny Stockings

Bernat's pattern is for a small decorative stocking worked in cotton thread as pictured below from their site.  I adapted the pattern to create a stocking for baby Chloe's 1st Christmas using heavier yarn and larger hook.  My changes to the pattern are in red.
Lighten up your holiday decor with these sweet little stockings. Shown in Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread.

So beautiful! There's something so special about a handmade gift like this. It reminds me of my mother. She was always knitting or crocheting something as she sat and watched TV or listened to music. Oh how I miss that sight!

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Hi friend,

I'm like you, not getting around as much, but today I hit the pinterest mother-load!

I love Chloe's adorable stocking and hope she will cherish it as much as I treasure mine. It was made with love by my great-grandmother.

The stuffed shells and creamy roll-ups both look so yummy too.

I'm so glad your Thanksgiving celebration included a full table and far away family too.

Cyn said...

very cute stocking! Love the colors too!

Debbie said...

this is just adorable! I love the things you make for the baby. My sister (who doesn't even blog but I have told her about you) copied the blanket you made and lined with fabric for her daughter. It is just soo sweet. Have a good day!

Lorraine, This is the cutest stocking! Love the colors, and that it is lined. Great job. Thanks so much for your visit.

What a sweet project! I will need to make three stockings this year - not ready to blog about it yet, so you can consider this an advance notice! I'll have to study that little pattern you've given us.

Adrienne said...

What a sweet, little stocking! I'd love to do something like this for my newest granddaughter - but I'm busy knitting hats for all of our grandkids. Lots of fun choosing patterns that 'fit' them. I love the colors you choose for Cloe's stocking. She's a fortunate little girl!

Olga said...

Wonderful work! The yarn colors and the lining are so pretty.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I so admire your creativity and eye for the beautiful. This is just the cutest little stocking ever!

Marysol said...

How lucky Chloe is!

I cannot crochet. But if I could, I'd be making your precious little stocking, for myself :)

Michelle Muse said...

adorable!! I wish I could make cute stuff like that:)

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

Beautiful stocking, Lorraine! Thank you so much for posting the instructions. I love to crotchet :)

Jackie said...

This is very cute. I wish I had found you sooner. Our first granddaughter born to our youngest daughter is named Chloe. They had four boys trying to get a girl. So she has four brothers and she keeps them on their toes!

Brandi said...

You are such a wonderful grandma, Lorraine! I love the way you make time for your family. I'm sure Chloe will cherish her stocking for many years.

Saw your super cute christmas stocking on pinterest, love it, but Im not sure I have time to actually get around to making it, but I have bookmarked your blog, so I shall be back to visit again.

Brianna Ramsey said...

I'm trying to follow your directions but I'm a little confused on the heel part. What does WS mean? I'm sorry >_<

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

WS means Wrong side and RS means right side. Hope this helps!

Krista Eitsert said...

Love this! Thanks for the pattern. Do you have instructions on how to add the liner?
