FLASH SALE | Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking!

Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking  | Salena Baca Crochet PatternI was in Design Wars this past week!

You can read more about it over on our blog.

2037-01-20 00.16.18

For this challenge, I decided to follow in my annual tradition and make a Christmas stocking! I love the rich tones this line displays, and the Cream contrast to the Greens and Reds made this particular stitch pattern really stand out boldly. This yarn has so much rich color, depth, and texture without losing the stitch definition. Plus, this yarn is ideal for pompom making! Seriously, I’ve made the best pompoms ever with yarns just like this. Overall, this  was the perfect yarn for my Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking design!

Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking | Salena Baca Crochet

This design is written in three sizes (Small, Medium, Large); each size is slightly larger than the last, giving these designs a traditional look that  pair together in a classic way. You can make one for everyone in your family, and size each according to age (Large for Mom and Dad, Small for the kids). Or, you can make each one the same size. Whatever you choose, the brickwork design will make each stocking blend together perfectly, giving you years of holiday joy!

I’ve got a bonus for you…
