Make Along Starts on Friday August 6th
Christmas in July is a three-day make-a-long event that will offer you some incredible options. Of course, we are bringing you both crochet and knit designs that will be free on our blogs. Scroll down for part 1.
And who doesn't like handmade crochet stockings to adorn the fireplace? Each unique crochet or knit pattern will bring modern and chic holiday decor to warm your home.
How to Participate in the Make Along
I love teaming up to be able to offer fun events for both knitters and crocheters. The crochet stocking version will take place right here on this blog. The knit stocking information will be available HERE on Marly Bird's Blog.
Be sure to join the Briana K Facebook Community to post your pictures and cheer each other on, help each other out, and craft together.
Okay, so we say “Christmas in July” because that’s a thing. But actually, it’s in early August this year. This CAL/KAL will run from August 6 – 8, 2021. If you joined us last year, then you know that it was a single-day event in 2020. But we’re going bigger and better. You can start prepping your materials right now so that you’re all ready to go when we begin launching the pattern instructions on August 6th.
All About the Perks
When you see this year's Christmas stocking patterns we hope to blow you away. We have worked hard to make colorwork easy. This is why we have included not only written instructions but also chart instructions and color block instructions as well! If you haven't seen what a color block chart looks like, stay tuned!
Best of all, this year the Make A Long will also include video tutorials. If you have ever been afraid of crochet colorwork, don't fear! With a step-by-step visual guide, you can crochet this stocking.

st(s) - stitch(es)
16 sts x 21 rows = 4x4 inches in ssc
19” From folded cuff to toe; 11” circumference.
White Spruce Crochet Stocking Notes:
This stocking will be worked from toe-up, leaving space for the heel to be worked last.
The colorwork in this pattern will use the split single crochet (ssc).
For the colorwork section, Color B will be abbreviated as (B), and color A as (A).
Example: (B) x 9 = with Color B ssc the next 9 stitches
The traditional ch 1 at the beginning of the round has been omitted as it is not needed. It is helpful to place a stitch marker on the first stitch of each row.
