A modern twist on a classic design and just perfect to hang from the fireplace.

The hexagon and diamond motif have a snowflake centre with raised picot edges giving a slightly 3D appearance.

You will need up to 200m each of main colour (MC) and contrasting colour (CC), an appropriately sized crochet hook and a needle for neatening ends.

MC and CC are used throughout to indicate how the example was worked. You may, however, substitute different colours, as desired, to produce a variety of different effects.

The example was worked in Patons Smoothie DK in White (MC), Patons Smoothie DK in grey (CC).

Each hexagon measures approximately 4” (10cm) across the widest part and the final stocking measures approximately 16” (41cm) vertical drop length.
