My second Christmassy project this month is a stocking!
A friend asked me to make one for her little boy. He is just about to turn 1 so it will be his first Christmas and as such he obviously needs a stocking.
I found this brilliant pattern (here) from Bernat and with a few adjustments (mainly how long to crochet for as it was getting a little too long for my liking, plus I got very confused when doing the heel so went a little freehand if you will to make it look right) I have a lovely looking stocking. I really like the old sock feel it has, especially the ribbed cuff that folds over the top.
Once complete I sent a pic over to my friend to let her know its was done and ask if she wanted anything on it and she asked for his name.
Thankfully I had already had some practice at doing crochet letters as seen in this post here but I did need to scale them all down slightly so they would fit onto the stocking.
The finished result…
