Caron Christmas Stocking
By Sarah Zimmerman
Hi! Sarah Zimmerman here with a super easy Christmas Stocking made with a double strand of Caron Simply Soft yarn! The best thing about this stocking is that it is crocheted in one piece. No need to fasten off and re-join for the heel. You can easily make stockings for the whole family and with 52 shades in the Caron Simply Soft line, everyone can have a different color!
– Caron Simply Soft Yarn in color of your choice for the main stocking as well as white. You will only need one skein of each.
