I most Definitely used the wrong Gage to crochet this... But once I figured that out I continued on anyway! I made this for my boyfriend, since he wasn't doing anything for Christmas. I filled it with a whole bunch of other things I bought him for the occasion. Although it is HUGE! It was really simple and enjoyable, and next time I'll just keep making more and turn it into a blanket! (Which is what he thought it was when he first spied it.)

(my mom modeling the beast for me)

I ran out of the dark green, so I finished up with the dark blue in spaces.

I used the Jingle Bells Stocking from FreePatterns.com

When my computer was loading the picture, it would go down a little bit at a time, and the stocking just kept going and going.  Wow!  Lot of work.  I, too, think it would make a really neat blanket.  I really like the colors.

You could be the poster child for always making a gauge swatch!

Kudos on having the chutzpa to post this!   
And I love the name! Cool
