Notes (Read Before Beginning):
- Start with velvet yarn and the 6mm hook for the stocking. The fluffy portion is made with faux fur yarn and the 9mm hook.
- The stocking crocheted in one piece, so do not fasten off until the very end.
Note: Use the 6mm hook and velvet yarn. Work in continuous rounds for this section. Ch 3 and sl st in first ch to create a loop.
Note: Work in turned rows for this section.
Note: Return to working in continuous rounds for this section.
Note: Switch to using the 9mm hook and faux fur yarn.
Note: Use the 6mm hook and velvet yarn.
- Lay the stocking flat. In the fluff section’s final round, find a stitch in the back part. Attach velvet yarn.
- Ch 8, or however long you’d like the hanging loop to be.
- Sl st in the same st.
- FO and pull the end inside of the stocking. Tie the two velvet yarn ends securely together. Weave in the ends or cut them short.
Congratulations on finishing your stocking!
- Use different yarn colors for the velvet portion of the sock, such as a different color for the toe and heel.
- You can also alternate colors every rounds to give your stocking a striped look. (If you're gifting the stocking to a die-hard team sports fan, using their team's colors would be an awesome choice!)
- Sew appliques and embellishments onto the stocking, such as pom poms, bows, buttons, beads, or even flowers if you'd like a boho look! These can be crocheted, made of fabric, or other materials.
- Embroider designs, such as polka dots or flowers, directly onto the stocking.
- Use different yarn fibers! You don't have to use velvet to make this pattern. If you're looking for clearer stitch definition, you might want to use acrylic yarn (for instance) instead of velvet.
