FREE PATTERN – Little Christmas Stockings

In the spirit of the season, here’s a free pattern for you all. This makes small stockings (about 3 inches, obviously dependent on hook and wool gauge) for decorations, money gift holders – they will fit nicely inside cards to your loved ones, or for those very special tiny treasures.

I imagine it would be quite amusing to put precious jewels inside and hang it up for someone, small is definitely beautiful but one of these would hardly have the greatest impact on the mantelpiece!

If you don’t have time to make these yourself, you can buy them from my shop here:

Please use this pattern for PERSONAL use only – make and give as many as you like, don’t sell the finish product and don’t reproduce the pattern for your own use.

Mini Stockings

Use a hook to suit the size of your wool – a 3.5mm should do for most DK yarn.

I use US crochet terminology, so Single Crochet means Double Crochet for those of us in the UK.

  • ch 2, sc6 in 2nd ch from hook
  • 2sc in each st around – 12sts
  • sc around x 4
  • sc 9, ch1, turn
  • sc9, ch1, turn
  • sc9, ch1, turn
  • sc9, ch1, turn (this shapes the heel)
  • sc9, sc4 along row ends of heel, sc3 in unworked sts, sc4 along row ends at other side of heel – 20sts
  • sc3, sc3tog, sc7, sc3tog, sc4 – 16sts
  • sc2, sc3tog, sc11 – 14sts
  • sc around x 8
  • sc2 (or 3, hold the stocking flat so that you are one stitch away from the back), slst1, ch8, slst2, FO and sew in end.

ch – Chain

sc – Single Crochet

st – stitch

slst – Slip Stitch

sc3tog – Single crochet three stitches together

FO – FASTEN Off

ENJOY!!!!
