Crochet Stocking Hat

Spread the love

A few weeks ago, I designed the Elf beanie and cowl, which is like having a beanie long enough to also serve as a neck warmer. Immediately, I knew a shorter version would follow. This bobble stocking beanie is the shorter version. This would make a beautiful knotted beanie or simply make it into your desired length and add a pom.

Have a look at the Elf beanie and cowl here.

In addition to the bobble stocking beanie, I have designed matching booties for infants. The booties are made in rows, for uniformity in size and shape. If you’ve ever struggled with archiving a similar shape of baby shoes, this technique would teach you how to make crochet baby booty with a similar shape.
