Elf Socks Christmas Stocking
A Christmas stocking that duplicates the adorable striped socks of Santa’s elves! Crocheted in heavy worsted/aran weight yarn. One size fits lots and lots of holiday goodies inside. This unique pattern is worked seamlessly in a continuous spiral of alternating colors. There are no color changes and therefore, no color change jogs and no unsightly seams.
A perfect pattern for intermediate crocheters or those who have moved beyond beginner and looking to improve their skills. The instructions include tips and photos for ease of understanding as well as a partial chart of both the beginning of the spiral rounds and the heel section.
A time-saver pattern with minimal ends to work in-do not fear the stripes!
Pattern includes instructions for both a two-colored striped stocking and a three-colored striped stocking. Have fun with the multitude of variations this pattern offers and make unique yet coordinating stockings for every member of the family.
