More Mini Christmas Stockings

We have been making mini Christmas stockings for Warmth for Warriors over at Ravelry for the past month. Cindylen of Good Things Together helped host a stocking along in which over 250 handmade mini socks were made.

I tried my hand at more crocheted waistcoat Christmas stockings. I find if I work the waistcoat stitch only on the chart portion of the stocking, I have a much easier time crocheting the pattern. I use the waistcoat crochet mini stocking pattern and only crochet the waistcoat stitch for the chart. There are many different chart patterns that a person can use on the mini Christmas stockings. I find the ones that are about 10-12 stitches across are the best suited for the stocking fronts. Here are a few examples

Latest Mother Bears

Here are bears number 25 and 26 I crocheted for the Mother Bear Project. This is a charity that is near and dear to my heart. The first bear features a colorful shirt that I crocheted using this bear skirt pattern with a yarn bear kit that Delights sent me for winning a Bingo on Ravelry. The kit included the pretty scarf that matched the yarn so it all worked into a cute little outfit for my bear.

Next is my little Jammie bear that I crocheted with MillaMia Yarn that was donated by LoveCrochet.com for my Mother Bear #26. My Jammie bear is crocheted seamless changing yarn every 2 rows. This wool yarn is very soft and super nice to work with.

I added a ruffle collar to my Jammie bear by crocheting Sc, skip 1 st, 6 DC, skip 1 st, repeat around the neck. I then just crocheted a chain and SC down the chain
