Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 12 single crochet + 14 rows (4 inch) to crochet a stocking that measures S (M, L). This translates approximately to 2 (4, 6-1/2) inch width and 4 (8, 14) inch in length. Save time, check your gauge. If the hook or needle listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge. Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning. Download the template for abbreviations and stitches not explained elsewhere.
    Special Stitch:
    sc2tog = Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
    Note: 2 skeins of Colonial Blue and 1 skein of White will make all three sizes of stockings.
