Crochet Christmas Mini Stocking
Christmas Stockings are fantastic for putting small items inside to give to your family and friends for Christmas. This crochet Christmas stocking is ideal for beginners as they are simple to crochet and are fun to make. They are simple as you only need to crochet a hexagon, then fold it in half and sew it up, and then add a few extra features. You can whip them up in no time and impress your loved ones by crocheting everyone a personalised stocking using different colours, not just blue and white like I decided to do. There are a written pattern and a YouTube tutorial below for you to be able to create this easy crochet Christmas Stocking.
