Simply Christmas Stocking

33 Shares

The Simply Christmas Stocking was the first stocking I crocheted them several years ago. Since then I have made them one or two more using different stitches and of course in different colors. I am offering the Simply Christmas Stocking as a free crochet pattern for you. You can find more of my holiday crochet patterns HERE.
