FREE Pattern: Mini Crochet Stocking

I love my job.  Teaching is what I've always wanted to do. I feel so blessed I get to do what I love.  I don't usually have a lot of time during the holidays to make much, so these mini Christmas stockings are perfect for me.  I can make these in about 5-10 minutes each, so it's easy enough for me to make one for each of my students.  They get these and it makes them happy.  I think they really appreciate that I take the time that I take to make it for them.  I'm sure they like the candy I put in it too! 

Hook - G/4mm
Darning Needle to sew in ends. 

Start with a magic ring, or ch 5 and slip stitch into first ch to form a ring. 
Row 1:  Inside the ring, ch 3 (counts as first dc), 3dc, ch1, (4dc, ch1)* 4 more times.  Then slip stitch into the top of first ch 3.  You should now have 5 groups of 4 dc. 

Row 2:  sl into the next 2 stitches and again into the ch 1 spot.  (Ch 3, 3dc, ch 1, 4 dc) all in that ch 1 spot.  Jump to the next ch 1 spot and (4dc, ch 1, 4dc).  Repeat in the next 3 ch 1 spots as well.  Sl st into the first Ch 3.  You should have worked in all 5 ch 1 spots when you are done. 

Row 3:  sl st to the next ch 1 spot.  (Ch3, 5dc) in that ch 1 spot.   {3dc in space between 2 corners, 6 dc in corner ch1 space} repeat around and slip stitch into first ch3. 

  • Before I sew up the sides, I make sure to tie off my beginning end.  It's much easier doing it now, then when it's sewed up. 
  • Next, slip stitch to next ch corner space.
  • Fold it in half, and then sc the sides together.  Some people like to slip stitch, but I like the look of single crochet on the edging better. 
  • When you get to the middle of the heel, 3 sc in the same space
  • When you get to the top of the side put 2 sc in the last stitch.  Do not crochet across the top as that is your opening. 
  • After you do the 2 sc, chain 15, and sl st into the 2sc spot.  Cut yarn and tie of.
