Crochet Christmas stockings
I started making three of these colourful Christmas stockings to hold small additional gifts for the grandchildren. When the first white one was nearly finished and the other two were about half done, I realised that they were coming out a lot larger than I expected.

Large & small Christmas stockings

Fortunately it wasn’t difficult to modify the pattern to make smaller versions which came out just the right size for some chocolate “gold” coins, a Kinder Santa and a small toy or other small packet of sweets.

Small Christmas stockings

The red and blue stockings have been posted off to the grandchildren and I will keep the big one to put some chocolates in as a present to myself and G. :)

In the New Year I will frog (ie unravel) the other two part done white stockings and reuse the yarn, probably as tea cosies, of which I could do with a couple more.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

Those are darling! I am surprised you will unravel them. You are very 'green' in my eyes to do that :-)

Oh how lovely.

And a great new word too. My Mum used to unravel our jumpers when I grew out of them (I was the smallest) but I don't know if she ever got round to making them into anything else.
