Yarn for a mini crochet stocking
I was very kindly gifted by Wecrochet some Brava Worsted weight yarn, which is my new favourite yarn, and which I used for the larger stocking
I’ve made these little stockings in 2 of the most common weights of yarn for my USA readers, and my UK readers, as we have different “common” yarn.
USA Friends, I’ve used Crochet.com “Brava” in worsted weight
>>> Find Brava Worsted Weight
UK Friends, I’ve used Stylecraft Special DK
But, being different weights, they are different sizes and make different sized stockings.
Both yarns are 100% acrylic, and are nice cost effective purchase. You’ll need 2 colours for each stocking.
Other Crochet Patterns with this yarn
How big is a mini crochet stocking?
This will depend on what yarn you use!
The smaller of the stockings using the DK yarn measures 13.5cm x 6cm (5 ¼ inches x 2 1/4 inches).
The worsted weight stocking measures 17 x 8 cm (6 1/2 x 3 inches).
Both will fit different items, the worsted weight will easily fit a chocolate/ candy bar. The DK weight will fit cutlery easily.
How long does it take to make a Mini Crochet Stocking?
These are a really quick make! I’d expect you to have these made in under an hour with the ends sewn in too!
