Have a fun and jolly Christmas season with handmade stockings, using the easy and customizable Kelsey Stocking crochet pattern by DivineDebris.com

Hi! Will you look at that, it’s the end of the year. Some might call it December, especially with that chilly morning air where I live. What ever you call it, it’s definitely a new month and you know what that means! A new round of patterns, staring with this week’s new design the Kelsey Stocking crochet pattern.

So, last month I designed the Kelsey Cowl because I had the cute new colors in Felici Worsted I wanted to try and you know how a variegated yarn behaves – you want to keep it simple or else it will be a whole mess. And the Kelsey worked well in a simple sc/dc combo that it got me thinking about more things to do with a variegated yarn. So, naturally, with December right around the corner I decided to design another Christmas stocking. And thus the Kelsey Stocking was born.

Now this isn’t my first stocking, I’ve made many in the past, but this might be my most colorful! 😀 I used Felici Worsted for this one too, the colorway is literally called Rainbow and I love it. The colors are bright and bold but still very soft. It’s weird to describe. It’s a really lovely colorway and I’m so glad I had it on hand for this pattern. Don’t you think we could all use more rainbows in our life this year?

I hope you like this new design and have enough time left in the month to make a couple. I wish I would have gotten the idea for this pattern sooner but you know how brains work – they have to get inspired on their own timeline not yours. Or maybe that’s just me.

I hope where ever you are you’re having a great time and being safe and healthy. Hugs friends. Wash your hands and masks.

I was provided the yarn for this pattern by WeCrochet for the purposes of making this design, with compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, it was the first time I used it and I really like the way it works up and feels sturdy. I will definitely be making another design with it in the future.
