Construction of the Brighton Christmas Mini Stocking Ornament
This Mini Christmas Stocking is super easy to make. Starting at the bottom of the toe and working in continuous rounds all the way to the heel portion. Then we will work in rows back and forth and sew the back of the heel together creating the side of the heel which the following rounds will be worked into.
As we continue to the leg portion you will also work in rounds, crocheting into the ends of the rows of the heel and the unworked stitches of the foot.
Then lastly we will finish off the top of the stocking and ad a hanging chain to complete the stocking.
Best Yarn for This Mini Stocking Pattern
The nice thing about Christmas Ornaments is that you don’t necessarily need to use the most popular yarn. This crochet stocking pattern works up great in all yarns and will create a well-loved crochet stocking for years to come.
If you are making a multi-coloured stocking you will want to make sure that you use the same weight yarn for the top of the stocking, the toe and heel section. And, if you are changing the size of the yarn perhaps you will choose a chunky yarn make sure to change the hook size as well and use the size recommended on the label of the yarn.
