Christmas Stocking-crochet pattern

Christmas comes but once a year and when it does it brings good cheer’, so why not bring your very own cheer to this magical time of year by creating some or all of the delightful little crocheted decorations. There is nothing quite like making your own tree hangings, either for yourself or to give as a special gift to a close friend or relative. They can be packed away and used year after year and even handed down through the generations, giving you and your family pleasure for many years to come.
