I spotted a granny square crochet Christmas stocking on the front of a Hobbycraft free brochure - of course I had to make one right away. Unfortunately there was no pattern inside, it was just an inspirational image, and a small one at that!
So I got to work making one of my own, using the little picture as inspiration.
Using three shades of yarn......
I made a series of random colourway granny squares, 4 rounds in each.
19 square in total were used for this particular stocking.
I then sewed them all together with an outside seam for design purposes.
Then, making a final check that I couldn't find someone to credit, I found the instructions for the stocking on a Hobbycraft blog. Mine is ever so slightly different in that it is joined in a different way with a row of DC's (Double Crochet) in a ridge, and a rim of DC's rather than TR's as in the pattern. Otherwise, I don't think I did too bad a job ;)
You can find it HERE if you fancy a go.
