While I was sketching and planning a new Christmas stocking design I realized that I couldn't choose just one design for this year's Christmas stocking crochet along. So, this year I'm releasing FIVE new crochet Christmas stocking designs! You can choose to make just one, or you can choose to make 2, 3, 4 or 5. It's totally up to you!
Do you love the social aspect of a crochet along? Do you love to crochet all of the holiday items you can? If you answered “yes” to either of these, then this crochet along is for you! What are you waiting for? Read the CAL details below and then join us in the A Crocheted Simplicity Crochet Community group on Facebook or the Ravelry group, for some CAL F-U-N!
Not so sure you'd like to join the CAL? Let me try to twist your arm... keep reading below....
First, a little info about the designs!
If you love holiday themed crochet, if you making stockings for your loved ones, if you love having options, then you’ll LOVE this crochet along!
It’s been a year since my last crochet stocking design and I wanted to design another one, but ended up designing 5! With each new stocking design I try to incorporate a new element. For these stocking designs I played around with plaid colorwork using textured crochet stitch patterns, working with faux fur yarn to make cuffs, poms and even an entire stocking, a nicely textured, classic looking stitch pattern, and a fun technique I've used on a few other designs this year.
Now, you may be intimidated by one or more of these designs, but the best part of a crochet along is that all hands are on deck to help!
Yarns: All stockings were designed using worsted weight yarns and/or a super bulky faux fur yarn. Please see individual stocking patterns for specific yarns and yardage.
How big are the stockings? Please see individual stocking patterns for sizes. They are similar in size, but do vary slightly.
Tutorials: The patterns include photo tutorials & charts as needed, but if you still need a little help, the best part of a CAL is the extra access you have to myself and many other talented crocheters who are all working on the same project at the same time!
Why should I join the Crochet Along?
- Crochet alongs bring a great sense of community to our craft.
- A CAL is the perfect opportunity to meet new friends who share your same passions.
- They're also great opportunities to share your talents with others by helping those in the group who are eager to learn new skills, but may need a little help along the way.
- You'll receive exclusive help from myself as I'll be there daily to answer any of your questions, should you have any.
- If you’ve never made a stocking before, a crochet along setting is the best place to learn! Come join us and let’s put those fears to rest! 😀
- And last, but not least.... THE AWESOME PRIZES! 😉

Diamonds and Fur!
Decisions! Decisions! I’ve been wanting to crochet stockings for a while, but which one to make? Hmmm ...
I love your new patterns. I've narrowed it down to Diamonds & Fur or Classic Textures. It's hard to choose. The last knitted stocking I made was 40 years ago.
I love them all! I will be making the plaid and diamonds and fur stockings!
Going to try the Buffalo Plaid stocking ... not sure how I'll make out, but I'll give it a whirl!
It was hard to pick just one but I decided The Diamonds and Fur is the one.
So many great stockings to pick from!! I know for sure I’m going to make the Diamonds and Fur stocking!!
Love them all! I've narrowed it down to either the classic textures or the diamond and fur. But in the end it will be whichever one my daughter likes the most.
Oh my they all look nice I might just have to make one of each. 😁
Got my tree sock pattern and ordered yarn!
Very cute patterns! I like the plaid and Christmas tree 🎄 designs the best.
I want to do the Diamonds and the Plaid. Then a mashup of the two 🙂
I will definitely start with the christmas tree stocking! I love the diamond one - depends on if I find the faux yarn in time.
I like them all but think I will do the Classic Stocking
This sound really fun!
I love the Buffalo Plaid. So that is the one!
Would love to try the plaid stocking! 😊
I want to make the diamond & fur version. So pretty!
My kids are in need of some stocking upgrades and I am thrilled that this crochet along is happening! I'll definitely be participating! Thank you for all the great patterns. It'll be hard to choose which one to make first.
I love the faux fur stocking! Truly they are all beautiful!
I want to do the Buffalo Plaid stocking. Hope time allows me to do that.
I’m going to make the plaid stocking. It will be my first stocking AND my first time doing plaid. Hopefully the first of many!

mary m hillegas
I am definitely making the Diamonds and Fur Stocking. I love them all. I have never crocheted a stocking but I have wanted to for a long time. Thank you for the perfect opportunity with your amazing patterns.
I would love to try the Buffalo plaid stocking
I’ve never made a stocking before, but I’m excited to try! The traditional textures and the Christmas tree ones look super cute!
I was at first attracted to the all faux fur stocking because I recently bought some faux fur yarn and although I bought it for pom poms was excited by the possibility of making it into a full project! But then the plaid definitely caught my eye! I'll have to think about this one...all depends on what yardage I have in my stash.
I want to make the diamonds and fur stocking but because of funds and such I will probably pull from my stash and make the Christmas Tree one. Wondering how it will look in other colors.
I won love to win yarn for any of them . never made a stocking , lovely to choose from. I like texture, so classic texture pattern, a great start! I have three grandsons, granddaughter due Christmas! All are blessings. This Granny needs to get on it! Thanks for this CAL., giveaway!
Great idea for a CAL. Can’t wait to crochet the Christmas tree stocking.
I'm so excited for this CAL. Our family is in need of new Christmas stockings. I mad e a plaid tree skirt last year, and the Buffalo Plaid stockings would match perfectly!
I always enjoy working up your patterns! These are lovely. 🙂
I would make either the buffalo plaid or the diamond stocking. I’m torn as to which I like better.
I've got to get in on this and make the diamond one to match my hat!
I think my favorite is the Diamonds & Fur Christmas Stocking, but I like the Faux Fur Stocking also!
Thanks for the chance!
I can’t wait to make the buffalo plaid and the diamonds ❤️❤️❤️ So excited!!
I love them all, but I think my favorite is the Diamonds and Fur
Wow! What amazing designs! The buffalo plaid is what grabbed my attention. But I would love to make all of these. I’m crossing my fingers and checking my stash. I’ll be home in a couple of hours... I’m so excited! ♥️♥️♥️
I'm really enjoying these mini crochet a longs! So fun!
I'm leaning toward the plaid stocking...
Making two, Diamonds and Fur and Christmas Tree Stocking. Thanks so much for this giveaway
Mary Lou Victor
I can't decide between the Faux Fur and the Diamonds and Fur so I may have to make both. The buffalo plaid one is adorable too!!
Love them all!
I think I might make the Christmas tree one or texture one.
Thanks so much for the Cal!
Going to try the buffalo plaid but may try all if I have time
I think I’ll try making the buffalo plaid stocking or the Christmas tree stocking. Depends on the yarn in my stash.
I will be starting with the classic textures!!
Buffalo plaid for me. They are all so pretty there might be more in my future.
I LOVE all 5 stockings, but the first one I will make is the Diamonds and Fur Stocking.
I’m excited to start the CAL with the plaid stocking!👏👍
These are really beautiful and different. Can't tell you the one I like most. TY

The Buffalo Plaid Stocking is the one for me!
Thanks for all the great patterns! I'm already on my second buffalo plaid sticking and hope to make my nieces and nephews each a unique stocking.

I plan on making the Christmas tree stocking!
I want to make them all! I'm going to start with the Diamonds and fur pattern. 😊

I think I’d like to try the Classic Textures Stocking. There’s just just something about that classic look that really appeals to me, although I do love them all!
I love them all, but the first one on my list is Diamonds and Fur!
Thank you for generously sharing your talent with us!
I love all of the new patterns, how am I going to choose which to make ? 😍

I cannot wait. I love making stockings.
I was hoping to make stockings for my family this year so this CAL couldn’t have come at a better time. Definite going to start with the argyle one. I love the design.

So glad to find this in good time! I thought I was too late to join! Doing the happy dance today! Love the plaid and the diamonds and fur ones, especially! TFS!
I'm going to be making the Diamonds and Fur for my daughter. Has such a classy look. Will definitely think about O' Christmas Tree and Buffalo Plaid
I'mgoing to do all of them just trying to decide which one first.
I'm not sure but I think maybe the plaid or the tree stockings are the ones I'll try.
Thanks for the patterns:)
I love them all! But especially the O'Christmas Tree pattern. I have just the right yarn on hand~
Love the Buffalo Plaid!!
Diamond and Fur is my favorite, but the Plaid stocking is a very close 2nd!
love all of them, but I think my favorite is the Diamonds and Fur. Then again the Faux Fur one would be lots of fun.
This will be my first Christmas stocking, I would like to do the plaid but will have to check the stash to see what yarn I have. Excited!!
Diamonds and fur and or plaid! What a fun festive project! Thanks a ton!!
Super excited to make the buffalo plaid stockings for my family.
