………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Attaching the Pockets

With the right side of your shawl facing you and the right side of your pockets facing you, center each pocket near the bottom of your shawl’s short sides.  

I used a Diamond as a reference and center over 1 Diamond with the Diamond rows centered in the Pocket.  If your Shawl is too big, center your pocket over your middle rows.

Sew the pockets onto your shawl using the whipstitch or whichever stitch you prefer to sew on pockets.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Pocket Full of Diamonds Shawl

Fringe

Optional

Step 1:  For each space you are going to place your fringe, cut three 14” pieces of yarn.  I place mine 2” apart.  

Step 2:  With the right side of your shawl facing you, line up the short end in front of you on a flat surface.  

Step 3:  Fold 3 pieces of yarn in half and line up their ends. Use your hook to pull their center down into a space at the very bottom of your shawl’s short side.

 

Step 4:  With the pieces still on your hook, loop all the ends over your hook, and pull them through.  

Repeat Steps 1-4 on both short ends of your shawl.

Trim your fringe so tassels are even across the bottom of your shawl.

That’s it!

20 yards of #4 Red or Green Worsted Weight Yarn
5 yards of #4 White Worsted Weight Yarn
Stitch Marker
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Size:
4” Height

Abbreviations:

Notes:

  • In this pattern you will be going around the chain, in the top and bottom part of the chain.  If you need help here are some instructions from YouTube.
  • At the end of each Round there won’t be a Join.  This is where the Stitch Marker will come in handy.
  • Red is the MC and White is CC.
  • On Round 16 there are 3 options on how to finish the top of the stocking.  Try them all and see which one you prefer.

R1-R14

At the end of Round 14 ss in the 1st sc made of Round 14 and join.  Fasten Off and change color.

R15:  Attach White yarn at the back side of the Stocking.  Sc around.  ss in 1st st to join.  (16 sc)

 

Option 1 for R16:  ch 1, sc 2 times in the same st and in each stitch around. SS in 1st st to join.   (32 sc)

 

Option 2 for R16: ch 1, reverse sc in the same stitch and each st around.  (16 rsc)  As you can see my pattern testers LOVED the Reverse Single Crochet!

 

Option 3 for R16:  Turn, ch 1, sc 2 times in the same st and in each stitch around.  (32 sc) ss in 1st st to join.
R17:  Turn, ch 1, sc in the same st and in each st around.  (32 sc) Ss in 1st st to join. Fasten off. These 2 rounds created a cuff that you can fold down, if you prefer.

JOANN Stores
(Optional)  Finishing Stocking:
Here you will be making your “Loop” that you use to attach the ornament to the tree or whatever you will be hanging it from.  I chained 5 which makes a small “Loop” for me to attach the mini stocking ornament to my tree but you can chain as many as you like.

After you join on Round 16 ch 1, sc in same st, ch 5, and sc in same st.

Fasten off and weave in loose ends with Tapestry Needle.

Congratulations!  You now have a 4 inch Mini Stocking Ornament.
