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 Stocking

Materials:
– 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.
Shop Caron Simply Soft Yarn Here: http://www.yarnspirations.com/yarn/simply-soft-yarn.html

Abbreviations:

Before you begin, wind your main color into two balls of yarn. Do the same with the skein of white. You will be working with a double strand of Caron Simply Soft.

Stocking is worked from the toe upward.

    What an Awesome pattern. I have so many skeins of Simply Soft as well as some Caron Cakes. I have Patterns for initials that would fit perfectly. Looks like everyone is getting a new stocking in my house as well as a few gifts for family and friends. Thanks so much Sarah.

  2. I would love to make these for my local Children’s Hospital! My son, Gabriel, was born last year 3 days after Christmas 🎄. He also had the stay until after Valentine’s Day. Now that his heart surgery has been done and he’s doing well, I want to give back to the hospital and all the children that have to be there over the Holidays. Thank you for sharing this pattern!

  3. I may make some for a local (Butler PA) drive to fill stockings for cancer patients receiving chemo. That way I can get them the right size. Have some already that I bought on sale, but this pattern may be just the ticket.
