Claremore Crochet Christmas Stocking is a simple, beautiful Christmas stocking that is just the perfect size for loading with holiday gifts! This stocking is surprisingly quick to make! I used Lion Brand’s Pound of Love yarn and have made four stockings so far out of just the one skein! I might manage one more as well!

What yarn should I use?

What other supplies do I need?

For this crochet Christmas stocking pattern you will also need a size K (6.5 mm) crochet hook and a yarn needle.

What stitches will I need to know?

To make the Claremore Crochet Christmas Stocking pattern you will need to start with a magic circle, make single crochet stitches and increases, bobble stitches, and chains. So the following tutorials may be helpful if you need help.
