There’s no denying that the granny square is a traditional crochet technique, and I wanted to make a classic, beginner friendly pattern with simple assembly for a holiday project, so when I thought about old timey Christmas, a granny square stocking seemed like the perfect solution! It’s a bit bigger than I envisioned, but not unreasonably large. It’s made of 27 three-round grannies that are whip stitched together and the cuff is made with post stitches and a crocheted in hanging loop for extra stability and a wee challenge for adventurous beginners. Enjoy!
