The crochet bobble stitch is an easy stitch to get the hang of, making this a beginner-friendly crochet pattern.  The Christmas stocking is worked in the round from the toe up with an opening made for the heel as you go.  The heel is completed at the end of the pattern.

The bobble stitch crochet Christmas stocking matches my Buttons & Bobbles Tree Skirt.  I’m excited to have new stockings for the entire family this year, including Grandma and Papa.  The matching cabled stocking pattern is coming out on Dec 17th!

I’ve kept my Holiday decor neutral this year by using cream as my primary colour that looks gorgeous with all the blues in my home.  I designed the Bobble all the way Christmas stockings in Tuff Puff and Fable Fur to match the tree skirt.
