The Stockings Were Hung

After searching countless Pinterest photos to find a cute little stocking pattern, I gave up and created my own.  All the ones I could find were big or huge stockings.  I wanted a mini stocking, big enough to fill with some candy, but small enough to hang on the tree.  So here it is.  This pattern is available here at Raverly as a PDF download with additional pictures. 


Christmas Stocking 
Crochet Pattern
Hobby Lobby I Love That Cotton,
Color 1-Red, Color 2-Monkey Red
Aran yarn
Color 1-gray, Color 2-white, Color 3-red
Crochet Hook Size H
You can use any style of yarn for this pattern, just adapt hook size to yarn weight.
Size: About 10 inches long without tab
CH—Chain
SS—Slip Stitch
SC—Single Crochet
HDC—Half Double Crochet
DC—Double Crochet
FPDC—Front Post Double Crochet
DC2Tog—Double Crochet 2 together

NOTES: CH 1 and CH 2 at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch.
I start each row with my first stitch in the same stitch I joined in.
Row 10 of Sock Body only, you may need to start your first stitch in the next DC not
your joining stitch. I found that necessary in order to keep 24 stitches around. The rest
rows should work out fine.

SOCK BODY

Row 1: With Color 1, In Magic Ring, 6 SC, join to first CH. 6
Row 2: CH 2, 2 HDC in each SC. Join to top of CH. 12
Row 3: CH 2, (DC in first stitch, 2 DC in next stitch) 6 times. Join to top of CH. 18
Row 4: CH 2, (DC in first and second stitch, 2 DC in next stitch) 6 times. Join to top of CH. 24
Row 5-8: CH 2, DC in each stitch around. Join to top of CH. 24
At the end of Row 8, tie off and weave in end. Begin Heel.

HEEL

Row 3: Turn, SS in second stitch from hook, SC, HDC, 4 DC, HDC, SC, SS.
Row 4: Turn, SS in second stitch from hook, SC HDC, 2 DC, HDC, SC, SS.  Tie off and weave in end.

SOCK BODY

Row 9: Attach Color 1 using a Standing DC or CH 2(this does not count as one of your stitches) in the second DC of the Heel’s Row 4. DC in next 6 stitches. DC decrease (DC2Tog) in next 2 stitches which should be the corner of heel and sock body. DC in next 11 stitches, DC decrease (DC2Tog) in next 2 stitches which should be the second corner of heel and sock body. DC in next 5 stitches. Join to Standing DC. 24
After Row 9, you should still have 24 stitches plus your Standing DC or CH 2.
Row 10-19: CH 2, DC in each stitch around. 24
At the end of Row 19, join Color 2. Tie off Color 1. Row 20: CH 2, DC in each stitch around. Join to top of CH. 24
Row 21: CH 2, turn and work in opposite direction to create ribbed cuff. In back loop only DC in each stitch around. Join to top of CH. 24
Row 22: CH 2, (FPDC in next stitch, DC in next stitch) 12 times. Join to top of CH. 24
Row 23-24: CH 2, (FPDC in next stitch, DC in next stitch) 12 times. Join to top of CH. 24
Row 25: CH 1, SC around. Join to top of CH. 24 (I used a third color for this row.)
