Free Crochet Pattern - Christmas Stockings

Crochet Christmas Stockings

Saint Nicholas, the inspiration for the Santa Claus figure we associate with Christmas, was known as the Good Saint. He was the originator of the book of naughty or nice. On the eve of December 6th would deliver tokens and sweets to children by placing them in the shoes or the stockings left to dry by the fire. December 6th is known as Saint Nicholas Day. Not everyone celebrates the tradition of Saint Nicholas Eve but when I was a child it was almost more anticipated than Christmas day. These sweet stockings would be a pretty holiday decor element that can be filled with sweet treats for your not naughty but nice little ones this Saint Nicholas Eve. Download Pattern Here.
