Here are 25 crochet Christmas stocking patterns to help you find the perfect stockings for your Christmas season.
Christmas Stocking Crochet Patterns
Whether you’re tired of your family’s stockings not matching or simply want to create a new look for your living room at Christmas time, crocheted Christmas stockings make a fun, cozy holiday project.
In this post, I’ve collected all kinds of stocking patterns, from farmhouse to vintage granny squares to festive bobbles and pompoms (there’s even a stocking for your pup!). Take a look, and you’re sure to find something you love!
Many of these free Christmas crochet stocking patterns are perfect for beginners. If you’re in a hurry (we all know how fast Christmas sneaks up on us!), choose a design made with bulky yarn, which tends to work up more quickly.
