The braided cable stitch can be a bit tricky to get the hang of so make sure to watch my video tutorial and follow along with the 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 Fable Cable Christmas Stocking matches my Bobble All The Way Christmas stocking and my Buttons & Bobbles Tree Skirt.  I’m excited to have new crochet stockings for the entire family this year, including Grandma and Papa.  Once I started making them I just couldn’t stop!

Crochet Christmas Stocking

I’ve kept my Holiday decor neutral this year by using cream as my primary colour. It looks gorgeous with all the blues in my home.  I designed the Fable Cable Crochet Stocking in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Fisherman. It matches perfectly with Tuff Puff in white and Mighty Stitch Super Bulky in cream so you can mix and match yarns as I did. My Bobble set was made in Tuff Puff.
