Cross Mini Christmas Stockings

Crocheted Cross Mini Christmas Stocking

Here are some new mini Christmas stockings I crocheted using the waistcoat stitch. This stitch is very challenging for me and hard on my hands. So I have found that if I just work the waistcoat stitching on the chart area, it is much easier. So here are some Christmas stockings I designed where I added crosses and other images to the stocking front.

Here is my free waistcoat stocking pattern. This pattern is the bases for my cross stockings but I only work the waistcoat stitches on the front of the stocking for the cross. The rest of the stocking is worked in regular single crochet (SC) stitches. When you switch from waistcoat to SC, it does create a gap so you have to adjust your stitches by skipping a stitch here and there. It is better to do it on the side of the stocking to hide the change over.

Here are some other 6 inch mini Christmas stockings I crocheted. These are all for the Warmth for Warriors stocking drive.

Christmas Towel Toppers

Christmas Snowman Towel Topper

I just love crocheting towel toppers. I crocheted these using several Christmas towels that I either got at the dollar store or on clearance last year.

This Christmas gift idea is quick to crochet and people seem to just love them. I added jingle bells for the closure on a few of them. It just adds to the holiday theme and it’s fun to hear the bells jingle.

These towels use this free crocheted pointed towel topper pattern.

Next I used this polka dot towel to add a blue cotton towel topper to it.

Below is a close-up of the crocheted towel topper.
