FREE Crochet Christmas Stocking Pattern

Updated on February 23, 2013

Easy Crochet Christmas Stocking


My Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern

If you're here, than I'm hoping it's because you were in search of an oh so cute crochet pattern for a Christmas Stocking. In that case I hope you enjoy the pattern I have shared here. You can also get a printer friendly copy here if you'd like to print it out.This is a fairly easy crochet pattern beginner to intermediate level. I've tried to break every part down for you to make it easy to understand. Each stocking is made up of 16 hexagonal motifs and 1 square ( for the toe). If you can crochet a granny square, this should be no problem for you as it's just an additional 2 sides. I have also included a diagram I put together to show you how to piece the motifs together. I have enjoyed making these for my little family as well as friends of mine, and I have had many, many requests as well. I hope you enjoy this free pattern and if you do make one, I would love to see the finished product. You can email it to me here.

SKILL LEVEL: Beginners to Expert

YARN: You will need one skein each of whichever colors you choose, if you're doing at least 2 colors. (If you choose to make one solid color stocking, you'll most likely need 2 skeins.)

HOOK SIZE: J-10 crochet can go up or down to get different sizes if you wish



Chain (ch) Make a slipknot and place on the hook. Wrap yarn around hook (yarn over-yo) and pull through loop (lp) on hook. Repeat to form as many chains as required. Do not count the original slip knot.

Double crochet (dc) Yarn over and insert hook into specified stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and pull through the first 2 loops on hook, yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops on hook.


MOTIF: (YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE 15 OF THESE) with Color A, chain 6 and slip stitch into first chain to form ring.

1 Motif Complete. You will need to make 15 total of the six sided motif exactly like this one. You will also need one granny square worked in same way, only 4 sided.

SQUARE MOTIF: ( will need only one of these for toe of stocking.)with Color A, Start with a, 5 ch , join in first ch to form a loop.

Round 1: 1. ch 3, 2 dc in lp, ch 2. *3 dc in lp, 2 ch*; Repeat * to * 3 time. Join with top of beg ch 3.

You're all done with the motifs. Now to assemble your stocking. Just a simple stitching along the edges. That's where you will need your tapestry needle. I have included a diagram of the pattern placement to help. It's much easier if you lay them down in the order they're supposed to go, and sew one at a time.

If you come across mistakes in my instructions, feel free to leave a comment, and I will correct it as needed. This was the first time I had written down a pattern as I went, but hopefully it'll work out okay. Happy Yarning!!

    Hello Kara and thank you. I just finished making a diagramed instructional on how to put this together. I should have been more specific before. I still have to keep one with me when I put these together. You can either click the link in the hub that says Printer Friendly version, or just check your email :). I just emailed you the link, so whatever place you check first, you're covered. Glad you got the opportunity to make this.

    Hello, I guess I should have put the measurements in the pattern. Of course the finished size depends on how loose or tight you crochet, and also what size crochet hook you use. Going by my pattern, mine end up about 7 inches in width and about 18 inches from top to toe, so they're pretty good size.

    I was just wondering, following your pattern, how big would the stocking be?

    Thank you Allexia, it is absolutely a great way to bond. My boys even try this but unfortunately they have shorter attention spans than I do lol. So they end up going to do "boy" stuff.

    Thank you Deborah and Shawna. And Shawna, I'm not good at socks and things like that either. You Should give this one a try. It's not a "round" type crochet lol, all it is are 15 hexagonal like granny squares. If you can make 4 sided and put them together, this is basically the same thing. It isn't actually round until you join them. It's much easier than you think.

  • shawna.wilson profile image

    These look great! I love to crochet, but I'll admit that I never have been good at socks or hats...anything round really! I mostly stick to blankets and scarves. Congrats on your nomination!
