Christmas in July Stockings

July 1, 2019 1 comment

Happy 4th of July! It’s a perfect time of the year to celebrate the 4th and Christmas in July with stockings. Of course stockings this time of year honor our country and our troops.

As we continue to make mini Christmas stockings for Warmth for Warriors, here are my latest using red, white, and blue yarn to crochet stockings. I used the fold-over option of this 6 inch Christmas stocking pattern to crochet these stockings.

Mods from original pattern: Work the toe portion of the crochet pattern as written in blue yarn,

We are just wrapping up our Christmas in July stocking along over at Ravelry. I crocheted about 20 different mini Christmas stockings over the 2 week event. Here are a few of my completed stockings which are for the 2018 Warmth for Warriors stocking drive.


These were crocheted using the BLO (back loop only) mini stocking pattern. Working in BLO has become one of my favorite methods these days. It is easier on my hands and fingers and the projects do seem to work up more quickly.


Here are two BLO stockings that I crocheted in stripes. You just work 2 rows in each color and carry the yarn on the inside after you change colors. This allow you not to have a bunch of ends to weave under later and makes for a cute little Christmas stocking.

BLO Mini Christmas Stockings

I have a new mini Christmas stocking pattern to share here at My Recycled Bags. This stocking is crocheted all in the back loop only or BLO as the commonly known abbreviation in the crocheting world.

The pattern can be worked in worst weight yarns for a 6 inch long stocking from top to toe. Or if you use an Aran or light weight yarn, the stockings measure about 5.5 inches long using a G (4 mm) crochet hook. I have shared a few photos here of the basic pattern, but feel free to crochet this pattern in stripes, work the first few rounds of the toe in a different color or even make a scrap yarn stocking by crocheting a mash of colors.

As always, here is the free BLO mini Christmas stocking pattern for your crocheting pleasure.
