Paw Print Stocking :)

I found this free pattern to make my doggie a stocking that is not too big or too small.
The stocking came out to be perfect size, and it's adorable! I did a different edging by the way than the pattern calls for.

This pattern makes a shorter version of the Red Heart's Dog Paws Christmas Stocking pattern. There is also Cat Paws Christmas Stocking pattern.

The pattern was easy to follow and no errors! :) It took me about 2 hours to complete it.

On to make more stockings! My birdies need one too. :D

Crocheted Stockings

This year, I got so tired of looking at store bought stockings so I crocheted us some! :)

Free pattern on Love City blog: 

This pattern is very versatile.  You can make it bigger/smaller by making more/less stitches on step 1 and working more/less rounds.  The same can be done by using yarn in different weight.

I crocheted mine with 2 strands of worsted weight wool yarn held together and a size K hook and spent about an hour to complete one. :)
This pattern is not written as in traditional crochet patterns.

I didn't follow the pattern exactly: First of all, I started out with the magic loop/ring method instead of ch 5 and sl st to create a ring. This is a toe-up stocking pattern.  On step 5, I repeated step 4 for 6 more rounds.  Step 6 - 8 create the heel.  I crocheted less rounds for shorter stockings.  I increased 2 stitches on each of the last 2 rounds to make the stocking look more after-worn. - This also makes it easy to stuff them with goodies! :D  As I worked on the last round, I added a loop with chains and sl st.  On my stocking (the center one), I made the frill for the last round with basic crochet stitches with different height. (ex. sc -> hdc -> dc -> tr -> dc -> hdc -> sc)  There are many other ways to achieve lacey look so have fun with it! :)
