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!

Where can I get this crochet pattern?

The Claremore Crochet Christmas Stocking pattern is available free here on my blog further down. If you prefer to have the pattern without the ads you can purchase it on Ravelry or Etsy as a digital PDF file.

What yarn should I use?

As I said, I used Lion Brand Pound of Love in #100 White and that one skein is enough to make four Claremore Crochet Christmas stockings. The skein of yarn that I used was provided by Lion Brand yarn, so my thanks to them for that!

You can get your own Pound of Love yarn here!

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.

The picture above shows the skipped sts you will be stitching into for Row 10 and Rnd 11.

The arrow shows the location of the first stitch of Rnd 11. This is where you will insert your hook to join at the end of the round. There is a step/gap/jog between the ending and beginning stitches. That’s okay. It won’t show much.

Leg

Note If you’d like to personalize your stocking with a bobble stitch initial, you’ll want to do that in the leg portion of the stocking. Learn more about my Bobble Stitch Alphabet here.

Rnd 1 (WS) Ch 1, sc in each st around, join to first st with sl st, turn – 36 sts.

Top Border/Cuff

Note Each bobble st is closed with a ch. Those chs will look like sts as you work the next rnd. Be sure to skip them so that you don’t add extra sts to your piece.

Rnds 3-6 Alternate repeating Rnds 1 and 2. Fasten off.

Hanging Loop

You’ll be stitching the hanging loop to the top edge on the same side as the heel.

Row 1 Fold stocking in half so that it is flat and shaped like a stocking. Find the two stitches right in the crease along the back of the leg. Sl st in the one on the right, ch 8, sl st in the next 2 sts, turn – 8 chs, 3 sl sts.

Row 2 Ch 1, sc in each ch, sl st in st next to where you started – 8 sts.

The black arrow is the location for the first sl st, the white arrow is the second slip stitch, the red arrow is the third slip stitch, the green arrow is the last slip stitch.

Finishing

Weave in all ends. Enjoy!
