Faux Fur Stocking


I'm so excited to publish my first Holiday pattern for 2020!
I have so many to come before Christmas....

I wanted to make new stockings for my girls this year and they loved this yarn so much....this faux fur brings out the cozy!


You will need ONLY ONE ball of Fable Fur from WeCrochet to make one stocking!
Talk about budget friendly.

It's also super bulky, so this works up very quickly.



Look at all the colours you can choose from to make matching stockings for your family.


Grab some Fable Fur....add to cart by clicking HERE

Now for the super easy pattern.



Notes before you begin:
-I have labelled this pattern as easy/advanced for a reason: this yarn makes it hard to see stitches, you have to feel for your stitches to know where they are.  If you are a beginner crocheter, I wouldn't recommend this being one of the first yarns you try.  Please use this pattern with ANY super bulky yarn and try it out first.
-the stocking is worked in the round: starting from the toe, to the heel, and then continued all the way to the top
-I used EXACTLY one ball for each stocking I made, if you want to make a bigger size, you will need to grab yourself another skein

Ready?

Let's get to the pattern.

*You will now work rows back and fourth across half of the stocking, decreasing for 4 rows, and then increasing for 4 rows.  The heel will be seamed at this point (you will cut your yarn to seam, and join back to finish the stocking.  I've included pictures below of each step of the heel.

After Row 8, fold heel flap and seam sides.
Then turn heel inside out.



Ankle/Rest of Stocking:

Now join yarn at the back of the ankle and start working in the round.

Round 7: Sc in each st around, sl st to join, Ch 1. (24)

Repeat Round 7 for 20 rows (the yarn will end here), sl st, and fasten off.

Fold top over to create a cuff.

Add/attach a ribbon/yarn/hook to hang it.



That's it!
