Crochet Christmas Stocking Pattern
This year I will be updating our stockings for the whole family! Since we are a family of 9, I’m getting started early! I came up with a new crochet Christmas stocking pattern that I will be using, so thought I should share the Briarwood Stocking pattern with you too!

Chunky Crochet Christmas Stocking
The Briarwood Stocking uses the Trinity Stitch for lots of texture and chunky yarn for support as well as keeping it a quick make.
The pattern is worked from the top down starting with the cuff, which is double thick, and working the way down to the toe. You can make the stocking with two colours as my example is or stick to one colour.
I chose to use *WeCrochet’s *Biggo yarn in Cobblestone Heather and Dove Heather. I love the mix of merino and nylon and the way it’s plyed together for a nice, strong stocking.
If you don’t have Biggo some alternative options you could try are: *Knit Picks Chroma Twist Bulky, *Premier Yarns Serenity Chunky, *Lion Brand Hue + Me, or *Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Bulky
A special thank you to *WeCrochet for providing the yarn for this project.
