Free Crochet Pattern: Mini Crochet Stocking

By Amy Yarbrough – 1 Comment

These adorable little stockings work up quickly and are a far cry better than the $1 kind you can find in the store, simply because they’re handmade!

If you’ve ever crocheted stockings or socks of any kind you’ll know there are a few different ways to work the heel, some of which are a little complicated. In an effort to keep this pattern simple, I designed it so that you gradually decrease in short rows and then increase back to original length, folding over to rejoin with toe to build the leg. The openings in the sides of the heels are then easily stitched shut.

Choose from either a solid stocking or a white heel. Or get especially creative and add stripes!

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 5” (12.5 cm) long, 2 ¾” (7 cm) wide

Materials:
Medium weight yarn (approximately 20 yards of main color, and 5 – 10 yards of white, depending upon style)
Crochet hook 4.50 mm
crochet yarn size 4

Gauge:
Rounds 1-2 in pattern measure 1” in diameter
