Christmas Stocking Make-Along

Christmas Stockings for everybody in the family! With one pattern (either knit or crochet) you can have a different stocking simply by changing the yarn color!

The first annual Christmas Stocking Makealong is a one day event hosted by Marly Bird and Briana K Designs. During the event you will get instructions to make a Christmas stocking, cuff down, video tutorials and a day of fun with myself and our guest designer. Learn more about the event, what you will need to participate for FREE!


Where is the Pattern?

First of all, let me say that both patterns will remain FREE on the websites. You can get the free version (keep scrolling to the bottom of this post for free version) or you can purchase an Ad FREE PDF of both patterns.

⭐️ Let me say that again, the free pattern links are at the bottom of this post. Each section has its own link to the instructions. ⭐️

What is the Christmas Stocking Make-Along

The 2020 Christmas Stocking event is a make-along for both knitters and crocheters. We can all work together on this project as we each make a beautiful Christmas stocking. Briana Kepner (Briana K Designs) is our special guest designer and has created a beautiful knit stocking for our event. I, Marly Bird, designed the crochet stocking.

Make-alongs, in this case a Christmas stocking -along, are a great way for knitters and crocheters to work alongside each other making something that is similar but not identical. This project will be idea for advanced beginners.

This is a one day event and I will release new sections of the project every 2 hours starting at 10am eastern time, see the full schedule below. If you follow along with the links below you will be able to make each section for each hour. At the end of the of the day you will have a new beautiful Crochet Christmas stocking or Knit Christmas stocking ready for gifting or hanging.

If you can’t start with us at 10am don’t worry! This pattern and links will stay here so that you can participate anytime that you would like. There will also be a PDF pattern for both the knit and crochet version when the event is over.
