A while back I had come up with a very pretty crochet Christmas Stocking that I love, and it's been very popular with customers who purchase the pattern for my African Flower Christmas Stocking. I've made many in the last couple of years, but I really don't enjoy having to stitch motifs together, call it lazy, it's the truth. I have several stockings to make for family and friends this year, as well as place in my shop before Christmas season is in full swing (hopefully). I wanted to come up with some new patterns that were much easier, quicker, but still attractive to work up.

Due to the yarn I used on this particular pattern, I was initially going to call it the Teenage Drama Stocking, because all the colors and pattern reminds of me a teen girl, but I decided to call it simply, Thick and Chunky, Stretchy Christmas Stocking, well because that describes it perfectly. The stitch used throughout most of the stocking makes it very thick, and gives it a mesh type of stretch to it. The finished size appears a little smaller than your average Christmas Stocking, but once it's getting filled with all those little goodies, it has a lot of nice stretch. It's the perfect size and if you use the yarn I did, perfect colors for a little girl (or a tween).
