Crochet Unicorn Applique Christmas Stocking

Hello everyone, today I’m sharing another fabulous Christmas make with you. I initially designed this last year, but didn’t think I would make another one so didn’t write the pattern down. However I was asked to make another one this year, so this time I made certain I record it.

The finished stocking is approx 20 inches long.

End row, chain 1, sc evenly along one side of the ribbing to tidy it up.

Sew the short ends of the ribbing together and then sew the ribbing to the top of the stocking. Remember to make sure the ribs are facing inward when you sew it together, so when the top of the stocking is folded over the rib shows.
