Happy December friends! Isn’t it wild that it’s already December? To celebrate the last month of the year, here’s a new design in my Pretty in Gingham line, the Pretty in Gingham Stocking crochet pattern.

Back in October I made a pumpkin. I had the idea for the pumpkin to be made in my Pretty in Gingham line but I wanted to use bulky yarn and some of the soft, soft Bernat Velvet. Needless to say, I fell in love and decided to make more designs in the line.

Last month I released the Pretty in Gingham Gift Bag, while working on this design. In my head they’re kind of like a duo, two patterns that fit super well together you could give them as a gift. I love them both so much and I really hope you do too. And you can easily make this in different weighted yarns. Or maybe cream and a variegated color! I can totally see all the different color combinations you could make in this gingham that will totally look amazing. I cannot wait to see project photos.

Also, I wanted to go all out with my only Christmas design. I will have a snowflake design out next month but I’m not going as big on Winter designs as I usually do… it’s been a busy year for me. I bet it has for you too!

I hope the rest of your 2019 is fantastic!

  • This pattern is worked in one piece from the toe up. It will be worked in sections: Toe, Arch, Heel, Ankle, Cuff, and Loop. The Toe, Arch, Ankle, and Cuff are worked in the round with a slip st into the first st of the rnd. The Heel is worked back and forth in rows and then seamed.

  • Every stitch in Arch and the Ankle sections is a single crochet. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many scs to make.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
