Small Crochet Christmas Stocking Tutorial

Small Crochet Christmas Stocking Tutorial

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi Everyone!

Today on the Monday live video I decided to crochet a stocking for you! We did it live together and it was super fun – I wish I could say I was super organized and had the written instructions ready for you when I started the live video, but turns out I finished my sample stocking about 5 minutes before it was time to get on video – so it’s 10:30 pm, the house is quiet and I am able to write it down for you now!  Many of you have asked for a YouTube video version, so check back here in a few days for that. In the meantime I will include the full live video. Let’s make this crochet Christmas Stocking!

Crochet Stocking Tutorial

Materials to make the Small Crochet Christmas Stocking

Yarn (I used Red Heart with Love) Check notes on instructions if using Red Heart Super Saver or similar

Crochet Hook (use the hook size recommended for the yarn you choose, mine is J or 6mm)

Stitch marker

Yarn Needle

Crochet Stocking Tutorial


Part 1 (the toe part)

Start with magic circle (you can ch 4 and slip stitch to make a circle if you have trouble with magic circles)

Round 1: 10 sc in the magic circle, slip stitch to close round, ch 1

Round 2: 2sc in each stitch for a total of 20 sc stitches, slip stitch to close round, ch 1. Place a stitch marker here if you have trouble counting the rounds.

Round 3- Round 10: 1 sc in each stitch going all the way around * If you are using Red Heart Super Saver or similar worsted weight yarn that uses an I hook, you may stop one round less than this because your stocking will turn out slightly smaller.

Part 2

sc 10, ch 1 and turn, sc back across (10 sc stitches) ch 1 and turn. Repeat for 5 rows to create a little “rectangle” jetting off of the toe portion of the stocking.

Fold the 10 sc part in half and slip stitch together to create the heel.

Part 3

Attach yarn at the heel, sc in each stitch all the way around to create the “tube” part of the stocking.

Continue stitching for 12 rounds, switch to white for round 13 and 14 if desired.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Here is the live video from Facebook. YouTube version coming soon.

Loved your video. Couldn't wait for the written instructions, took notes from the video and made 5 of these cuties already. Found this tutorial while looking for the video to share with an interested friend. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

Hi Annmarie,

I love this pattern for a quick mini Christmas sock. It is an easy & quick sock to crochet. I had the idea that it would also make a wonderful accent to add onto the top of a grandchild’s or niece & nephews package with one of those mini candy canes in it. If the child wanted they could save it & then, they would have a mini sock ornament to place on their Xmas tree for the next year.. I also thought that it would make a good accent to add onto a homemade wreath. If U want even a smaller size for a wreath all U would need to do is to decrease the hook size. Thank U, Melanie. I want U to know that I love your videos because, U explain patterns thoroughly & U go slow enough in the videos so, it makes it easy for me to follow right along with U. U are a Super Crocheting Instructor w/ wonderful patterns & videos. I truly appreciate all your hard work to bring the videos & patterns to all of us. Sincerely, Bryna
