Scouring the stores for the perfect stocking to match your Christmas decor can be exhausting, so save yourself the trouble and crochet your own instead! Whether you’re keeping things traditional or mixing it up with modern looks, there’s a perfect pattern for you.
1. Dylan Christmas Stocking
If you love colorwork, this modern take on a classic stocking is for you. It’s made with simple stitches and working through the back loop, and because it allows for three colors it can easily match the rest of your crocheted Christmas decorations.
2. Quick-and-Easy Stockings
Mix and match polka dots and stripes for a colorful, festive mantel. Not only do these stockings add variety, but they’re super quick to stitch — you’ll be done in two hours, tops.
3. Mini Christmas Stockings
Bust your stash and whip up a cute mini stocking (or 10). These little guys can be used to hold candies or gift cards, or you can make ’em into a totally one-of-a-kind advent calendar.
4. Jolly Textures Stocking
This pattern is 100 percent customizable, so you can make your stocking exactly how you like. Choose between worsted weight or bulky yarn, striped or solid colors, then a ribbed cuff or simple finished edge top. Regardless, there’s a how-to for it all!
5. Braided Cables Stockings
Between the crochet cables and ribbed cuff, these stockings are bursting with texture. Stitch them all in one color to create a traditional look for your mantel.
6. Cozy Cottage Stocking
Classic, elegant and full of texture, this stocking’s a must-make. Crocheted from the cuff down, you’ll follow a simple stitch pattern that works up fast.
7. Jolly and Bright Christmas Stockings
For something a little more fun and funky, stitch these toe-up stockings. The secret to their unique appeal: popcorn stitch.
8. Perfectly Plaid Stocking
Another pattern for colorwork lovers, this stocking comes together with simple stitches (plus a few post stitches for extra texture). And if you’re not feeling the plaid layout, you can always customize it to match your vibe.
9. Argyle Stocking
A truly classic look, once you make this design you can hang it up throughout the years. Not to mention the argyle texture is subtly gorgeous, and the pom-poms add a touch of fun.
10. Jubilee Christmas Stocking
Who knew traditional green could look so cool when paired with not-so-traditional pink? Crochet in the round using single crochet and extended single crochet stitches to give the body of this fun stocking a mosiac-like look.
11. Ivory Snow Stocking
Not only is this stocking gorgeous, but it also stitches up in a flash. You can add different colors if you want, but stitching it all in one hue really lets the rich texture shine.
12. Little Bird Stocking
If you’re looking for something a little more playful (and scrap-friendly), this stocking is just what you need. Stitch it in bold colors and add 3D texture with felt and fiberfill.
