Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 13 sc and 14 rows (4 inch) in sc to crochet a stocking that is approximately 16 inch long. 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.
    Download the template for abbreviations and stitches not explained elsewhere and the chart.
    Special Abbreviations:
    sc2tog = [Insert hook in the next st, yo, draw yarn through the st] twice, yo, draw yarn through 3 loops on hook
    bobble = [Yo, insert hook in next st, yo, draw yarn through st] 3 times in same st, yo, draw yarn through 7 loops on hook
    D = Hunter Green
    Notes:
    To change color, on last st of first color, work first color until 2 loops remain on hook, yo with next color and draw through 2 loops on hook.
    Carry unused colors loosely up side of stocking to be picked up later in row.
    There are two different versions of the stocking - Green on Green and Green on White - listed below.
