In 2018 the Warmth for Warriors organization is once again collecting handmade Christmas stockings to send to our troops.They collect the stockings and fill them with little items such as soaps, candy, toiletries and other small goodies. The stockings can be crocheted, knitted, sewn or woven. Stockings should be around 6 inches long and any pattern style or color is accepted. Stockings that are a little smaller or larger are okay too.

We had a wonderful year in 2017 with 2,819 stockings received for the Warmth for Warriors. Let's have another banner year for our troops and give them a little extra Christmas cheer during the holidays. Thank you to everyone that has helped in the past and those stepping up again this year.

Shipping address for all USPS packages:

Warmth for Warriors
PO Box 353
Rudyard, MI 49780

Deadline for shipping stockings to Warmth for Warriors and delivery to them is November 1, 2018.

I have been working on a few more crocheted mini Christmas stockings over the weekend while I watched the NCAA basketball tournament. Here are some top-down stockings using this free pattern link.

Thanks Brenda. I've been on a roll with these stockings and do plan to get a few more done before mailing off the box. The box is stuffed full but I think I can squeeze in a few more little socks. :D

Here are a few more mini Christmas stockings I crocheted. The snowflake ones use my waistcoat crochet pattern but I only work the waistcoat stitch on the front in the chart area.

:cheerfor more stockings.  Cindy I love the ones with the snowflakes.  Great idea to do just that section in waistcoat.  I think I started a whole stocking in waistcoat and it just seemed too bulky for such a small stocking.

Thanks! I love the look of crocheting in the waistcoat stitch but it is really hard on my hands and fingers. I found just doing it in the chart area works out so much better for me. I have found several small charts to work on the mini stockings which have worked out for me to add to the stockings. Look for charts only about 10 rows tall.
