Striped Crochet Christmas Stocking

The sun is out today so I got up and photographed, as many as possible, projects I’ve been working on. It has been so dark outside and for the past few days it’s been foggy all day.

First off … I’ve got some very simple crochet Christmas stockings for you. The pattern is for the stripy ones I’ve made but you can skip all that and make them very basic or add more colour. Do whatever you like, this is just a basic pattern.

The Stitches

sl st=slip stitch
dc=double crochet
sc=single crochet
ch=chain

The Foot
Start with a magic ring

Colour 1/Round 1:
dc 8 in the magic ring, pull tight, sl st

Colour 1/Round 2:
ch 2 (counts as 1 dc) 1 dc in the same dc (now you have 2 dc in the dc of the previous round. Repeat in remaining dc’s, so 2 dc in each dc of the previous round. sl st.

Colour 1/Round 3:
ch 2 (counts as 1 dc) 1 dc in the same dc (now you have 2 dc in the dc of the previous round. 1 dc in the next dc of the previous round. Repeat in remaining dc’s, so 2 dc, 1 dc, 2 dc … in the dc’s of the previous round. sl st.

Colour 1/Round 4:
ch 2 (counts as 1 dc) 1 dc in the same dc (now you have 2 dc in the dc of the previous round. 1 dc in the next two dc of the previous round. Repeat in remaining dc’s, so 2 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 2 dc … in the dc’s of the previous round. sl st.

Colour 1/Round 5:
ch 2 (counts as 1 dc) 1 dc in the same dc (now you have 2 dc in the dc of the previous round. 1 dc in the next three dc of the previous round. Repeat in remaining dc’s, so 2 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 2 dc … in the dc’s of the previous round. sl st.

Colour 2/Round 6:
ch 1 (counts as 1 sc) sc all around. sl st.

Colour 1/Round 7-8-9:
ch 2 (counts as 1 dc) dc all around. sl st

Colour 3/Round 10:
ch 1 (counts as 1 sc) sc all around. sl st.

Colour 1/Round 11-12-13:
ch 2 (counts as 1 dc) dc all around. sl st

Colour 4/Round 14:
ch 1 (counts as 1 sc) sc all around. sl st.

The Heel
Crochet 15 dc’s wide and 4 dc’s up to form a heel as seen in the image above.

Fasten off and start to dc all around all the stitches as seen in the image above.

Repeat to dc/sc until you have reached a satisfied length of the sock.

I’ve used Annell Rapido yarn 3260 (off white), 3233 (baby pink), 3224 (indigo) and Scheepjes wol Roma 1411 (bright pink), 1413 (sand) and 1400 (light green)

The rabbit is from Maileg – The postcard from 1Canoe2 – The blue wrapping paper is from Loods5 and the pink one from IKEA and I don’t have a clue where I got the candle holder from, but it’s perfect.

Would love to read your comments and links to your stockings.

    I love your stocking! I just learned to crochet (honestly, last week) My little old lady neighbor is teaching me and I am going to show her this pattern so I can make one of my own. Thanks!

    I love your colour palette, it’s so fresh and bright. My Christmas colours are the traditional red and green but I’m rethinking that after seeing this photo.

    Your rabbit and stocking are so cute together. I love your Christmas pastels – so different from the standard red and greens!

    I can’t crochet so the stocking is beyond me but I just wanted to say I am so inspired by your Christmas decorating! My Christmas pinterest board is full of your decorations from over the years, I just love all those colours. Thank you for the inspiration!

    Oh so beautiful festive photographs… am I allowed to now feel Christmasy? And do I have time to crochet one of these delights before Christmas?!

    Yvonne, this is so gorgeous. I made my kids red felt stockings last year and am kicking myself now because, while they are festive, they don;t really fit in with my home! I want to make these ones now… x
