Crochet Gingerbread Stockings

This year instead of buying stockings, I decided to crochet a set of Christmas stockings for my family. To make my stockings, I used Red Heart's free pattern for Gingerbread Stockings. Since we have a Seahawks themed Christmas Tree and Seahawks inspired Christmas Tree Skirt, I crocheted the stockings with Red Heart yarns in Seahawks colors. The yarns I used for these stockings are Red Heart Super Saver in Blue Suede, Glowworm, Grey Heather, and Silver. For the gingerbread men/women, I used Red Heart Soft in Toast.

Here are some pictures from this crochet adventure with Red Heart's free pattern for Gingerbread Stockings:
With this pattern, the stocking is made starting with the top ribbing and worked down. It's a pretty easy pattern to follow.

After crocheting the ribbing, you work down to make the rest of the stocking.

Here's the completed body of the stocking before adding the gingerbread.

When I made the stockings, I made the gingerbread people a pair at a time. Each gingerbread is edged with silver stitches and have silver French knots sewn onto their hands and feet. They also have silver eyes and smiles. The gingerbread guys and gals each have a blue or green heart. 

My gingerbread woman is wearing a blue dress, and the green heart will be sewn onto her dress.

After completing the gingerbread people, I left a long tail to sew them onto their stockings.

So here's my stocking and my husband's stocking...

And here are my son's and daughter's stockings.

These stockings are so fun and easy to make. I may make some next year for gifts for friends and family.
