Blanket Stitch Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern

How to Crochet a Christmas Stocking

After years of having babies and trying to decide what kind of stockings I want my family to have for Christmas time, I finally have designed what I think are the perfect stockings! Check out the simple, quick, and ADORABLE crochet Blanket Stitch Christmas Stocking!

Like I said, this stocking pattern has been a long time coming. But after this summer of taking a step back from my blog to decide really what direction I wanted to take it, I have come to some BIG decisions.

Before I really let you all know about what those decisions are, I’m going to give you one more reason I have for these decisions. I’M PREGNANT!! Yep! That’s right! 4 babies in 4 1/2 years! And especially after seeing our strong and beautiful baby on an ultrasound the other day, we are beyond excited to hold and snuggle that little cutie!

Like the rest of our pregnancies, we are waiting to find out the sex until the baby is born in March.

So my biggest decision is to only post once a month. Now, this may mean less free patterns, but I will still be emailing my newsletter out every week. This newsletter will include round ups, previous patterns for the proper time of year, and the monthly pattern. Sign up below if you haven’t yet!

Blanket Stitch Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern

Now let’s get back to the stocking pattern. This pattern is so easy and quick! It takes only a couple hours to complete, so it is perfect for getting all of those decorations done for when you need them. It uses a stitch called the Blanket Stitch, which is a combination of first row of single crochet and chains and second row of double crochet clusters. Super pretty and very beginner friendly. There are pictures in the pattern for reference.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful stocking!

Measurements: Stocking is 16 inches tall once top flap is folded down. It will be 5 ¼ inches wide.

Important Notes:

  • No matter your skill level, I always suggest that you read through the pattern from beginning to end before beginning your work just to be sure you don’t have any questions that might cause frustration in the midst of your project.
  • Chain 3 will always count as a double crochet.
  • Chain 1 will NEVER count as a stitch.
  • The toe, heel, and top will be using the contrasting color.
  • The cluster stitches will be in the main color.
  • The heel will be worked back and forth as a row. You will add a stitch at the end of each row by working a single crochet in the next stitch from round 17. There are pictures for reference.
  • I used a technique for color changing that can be found here.
  • Do not cut yarn at every color change. Just pull the yarn up whenever you change.
  • Round 28 will have 6 extra stitches, so be sure to put a stitch marker in the 6th stitch. This will become the beginning of your round, so the start of every round after the heel matches up with the start of every round after the heel.
