And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
But the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
I crocheted this stocking cap and cuffed baby shoes by modifying 2 Ravelry patterns and adding eyes and a “carrot” nose.
I put a smaller snow face on this version, so that I could make the shoes in a brighter color.
And this set has a matching beanie:
Don’t be afraid to try changing a pattern and adding a touch of your own creativity… no harm in trying and you can always rip it out :)
I’ve been crocheting Christmas stockings since my kids were born. Each new baby or family member gets a unique stocking just for them.
I always use the same stocking pattern (from an old craft book I bought at a garage sale) and then design a different appliqué for the front of each one.
These are the three new stocking designs for 2010…

Red and white candy cane flowers for Skyleigh:
And a simple modern snowman for Cody:
Can’t wait to fill them! :)
