This is a simple design, worked all in one piece with one small seam at the back heel to sew closed at the very end. Keep it super simple and decorate with pom poms and your glue gun…sequins, or even use some fun white fluffy yarn to work one additional round at the end.

When you alternate your colors, you can change them on the last yarn over of the final single crochet stitch of the round which will leave a small seam.

Or you can finish off each round with an invisible join (when you change colors) and join your new round of color with a single crochet. This eliminates the seam and gives you a professional finished look.

The ch 16 in R24 is the strap you will use to hang the stocking. Optionally you can attach a button to the other side of the stocking and use this loop as a closure – if say you were using the stocking as a gift card holder. It will help the gift card stay put in the stocking.

  1. Please ignore my prior comment. I see a smaller pattern now. Hard to see it all on my phone. Thanks!

  2. You show different sizes in your photos. Do you have an even smaller version than 5 inches tall? If so how do you adjust the pattern? Thanks! These are just what I’ve been looking for.
