You’ll need:

2,5 balls  of WeCrochet’s “Snuggle Puff” (70% cotton/30% nylon, 142yds/50g per ball) in the color Lamb;

50 yards of worsted weight yarn in a contrasting color for the tree bobbles;

Crochet hooks 5,5 mm (I) and 4 mm (G);

Scissors;

Yarn needle.

 

Size: 18” tall x 7” wide.

 

Stitches control: 15 sts x 11 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

 

Special Stitches

Bobble (bo) aka: dc4tog cluster – [Yarn over (YO) and insert hook into desired stitch, YO and pull through the stitch, now YO and pull through two loops] 4 times in same stitch.  With 5 loops on hook, YO and pull through all 5 loops. Stitch is complete. Your next stitch will be a SC. Watch a video tutorial of this stitch here.

 

Instructions

Toe

With an I hook and white yarn (or your main color of choice), make a magic circle.

Round 1: 10 hdc in magic circle. Join to 1st hdc with sl st. Ch 1, do not turn. <10 hdc>

Round 2: Hdc-inc in each stitch. Join with a sl st. Ch 1, do not turn. <20 hdc>

Round 3: Work [Hdc-inc in first st, 1 hdc in next st] 10 times. Join with a sl st. Ch 1, do not turn. <30hdc>

Round 4: Work [Hdc-inc in first st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts] 10 times. Join with a sl st. Ch 1, do not turn. <40hdc>

Round 5: Work [Hdc-inc in first st, 1 hdc in next 3 sts] 10 times. Join with a sl st. Ch 1, do not turn. <50hdc>

Stop here and check for gauge. The diameter of your circle after Round 5 should measure 4.75 inches.

Round 6: 1 hdc in each st. Join with a sl st. Ch 1. <50hdc>

Turn.

Rounds 7-18: 1 hdc in each st (Tip: for Round 7, place your first hdc in the 50th st of Round 6, NOT the sl st). Join with a sl st. Ch 1, do not turn. <50hdc>

After Round 18, turn and continue to heel instructions.

Heel

The heel is made continuing with the I hook and white yarn, but we will now be working in rows. We will go back to rounds after the heel portion is complete.

Row 1: Sc in the first st (not the sl st) and in the next 19 sts. Ch 1, turn your work. <20 sc>

Row 2: Sc in each st. Ch 1, turn. <20 sc>

Row 3: Sc in the first 6 sts, sc-dec, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc-dec, sc in the last 6 sts. Ch 1, turn. <18 sts>

Row 4: Sc in the first 7 sts, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc in the last 7 sts. Ch 1, turn. <18 sts>

Row 5: Sc in the first 5 sts, sc-dec, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc-dec, sc in the last 5 sts. Ch 1, turn. <16 sts>

Row 6: Sc in the first 6 sts, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc in the last 6 sts. Ch 1, turn. <16 sts>

Row 7: Sc in the first 4 sts, sc-dec, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc-dec, sc in the last 4 sts. Ch 1, turn. <14 sts>

Row 8: Sc in the first 5 sts, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc in the last 5 sts. Ch 1, turn. <14 sts>

Row 9: Sc in the first 3 sts, sc-dec, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc-dec, sc in the last 3 sts. Ch 1, turn. <12 sts>

Row 10: Sc in the first 2 sts, sc-dec, hdc in the next 4 sts, sc-dec, sc in the last 2 sts. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <10 sts>

 

Leg of Stocking

Still using I hook and white yarn, we will resume working in rounds by crocheting around the heel flap and the unused sts of Round 18. 

Round 19: Tilt your work so that you are working down the sides of the heel rows. Evenly space 5 hdc down the sides of the rows (about one every other row).

Tilt work so that you are working in the unused sts of Round 18. 1 Hdc in the next 30 sts.

Tilt work so that you are working back up the other side of the heel. Evenly space 5 hdc along the row ends. 

Tilt work so that you are working across the Row 10 of the heel. 1 Hdc in the next 10 sts. Sl st to the first hdc of the round to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 hdc>

For the rest of the leg rounds, we will start each round with a hdc-dec and end each round with a hdc-inc. This will help to keep the color work portion of the stocking straight. Please see the Notes section of this pattern for more info on this technique.

Rounds 20 – 23: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, work 1 hdc in the next 47 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Join with a sl st. DO NOT TURN. <50 hdc> 

We will now begin the color work portion of the leg. The written instructions are below and you can use this chart to help guide you. You can see that even with the inc/dec technique, the color work pattern still has to be offset to account for the remaining slant. Don’t worry, it’ll all work out!

Round 24: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 27 sts (on the last step of 27th hdc, pull through with brown), 1 hdc in the next 4 sts using brown (switch to white), hdc in the next 16 hdc using white, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 hdc>

Round 25: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 27 sts (switch to brown), 1 hdc in the next 3 sts using brown (switch to white), hdc in the next 17 hdc using white, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 hdc>

Round 26: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 20 sts (switch to green), work [bo in the next st, sc in next] 8 times (on the 8th bobble, pull through with white and work the last sc with white), 1 hdc in the next 11 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 sts>

Round 27: Hdc-dec over first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 47 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50hdc>

Round 28: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 20 sts (switch to green), work [bo in the next st, sc in next] 7 times (on the 7th bobble, pull through with white and work the last sc with white), 1 hdc in the next 13 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 sts>

Round 29: Hdc-dec over first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 47 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50hdc>

Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 sts>

Round 33: Hdc-dec over first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 47 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50hdc>

Round 34: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 20 sts (switch to green), work [bo in the next st, sc in next] 4 times (on the 4th bobble, pull through with white and work the last sc with white), 1 hdc in the next 19 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 sts>

Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 sts>

Round 37: Hdc-dec over first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 47 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50hdc>

Round 38: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 20 sts (switch to green), work [bo in the next st, sc in next] 2 times (on the 2nd bobble, pull through with white and work the last sc with white), 1 hdc in the next 23 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 sts>

Round 39: Hdc-dec over first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 47 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50hdc>

Round 40: Hdc-dec over the first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 20 sts (switch to green), work [bo in the next st, sc in next] once (pull through the bobble with white and work the sc with white), 1 hdc in the next 25 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50 sts>

Rounds 41 – 49: Hdc-dec over first 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next 47 sts, hdc-inc in the last st. Sl st to join. Ch 1, DO NOT TURN. <50hdc>

Round 50: Sc in each st. Fasten off and weave in the end. <50 sc>

 

Cuff

With G hook and white yarn, chain 19.

Row 1: Hdc in 2nd chain from hook and in each ch. Ch 1, turn. <18 hdc>

Rows 2 – 43: Hdc in the blo in each st. Ch 1, turn. <18hdc>

You should now have a long rectangle of ribbing. Fold it in half lengthwise and align the two short ends. To join the ribbing, insert your hook under the front loop of the row nearest you and the back loop of the row farthest from you and slip stitch through both. Continue slip stitching across until the two ends are  joined. Do not cut yarn. <18 sl st>

 

Attaching Cuff

Insert the circular cuff into the top opening of the crochet stocking, with the seam towards the back. The top of the cuff row ends should be flush with the top of the stocking leg. 

With the working yarn, ch 1 and sl st through the top of the cuff AND through the top row of the stocking leg (Note: you will be working through the ends of the cuff rows so you will need to choose your own spaces to insert your hook. Try to choose a spot at the end of each hdc row).

Since we have 43 hdc row ends and 50 scs at the top of the stocking leg, you will need to skip 6-7 scs when joining. I tried to evenly space out the skipped scs. 

Continue sl st around to join the cuff to the stocking. 

Fasten off, weave in ends, and flip the cuff to the outside of the stocking.

 

Hanging Tab

With G hook and white yarn, ch 4.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch. Ch 1, turn. <3 sc>

Rows 2- 24: Sc in each st. Ch 1, turn. <3 sc>

At the end of Row 24, fasten off, leaving a 12” tail.

Fold the tab in half lengthwise and use the long tail and a yarn needle to sew the tab to the top of the stocking.
