Handmade Holiday Stocking

Lion Brand® Holiday Homespun®

GAUGE:

12 single crochet + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sc2tog (sc dec) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES:

Heel begins by working over 20 sts – one half of the total sts of the leg. These are the heel sts. The remaining 20 sts are the leg sts. You will work on the leg sts again later.
In Rows 2 and 3 of heel shaping, you will leave 6 sts unworked at the end of each row.
On Row 4 of the heel shaping, you will work across the same 8 sts worked on Row 3, then sc into the next sc of the row below (this is one of the 6 sts left unworked in Rows 2 and 3). This will add one st to the heel for a total of 9 sts for the heel.
Continue to repeat Row 4, adding one st at the end of each row by working 1 of the unworked sts in the row below until you have 20 heel sts.
Your piece will be a long tube for the cuff and leg, the heel will look like a small cup extending from the leg tube.
Work continues in the round for the foot.
On Rnd 1 of the foot, you will work over the 20 sts of the heel, then sc into the ends of the rows (the side edge of the heel tab), work the 20 leg sts, and sc into the ends of the rows (on the other side edge of the heel), to prepare to work in the round again.

Handmade Holiday Stocking Reviewed by Age Congdon on 2011-11-08 *****
Easy to follow pattern, works up relatively quick. Easy to alter if you want a chubbier stocking. I'll be starting my 5th go at this pattern this week. (I've finished it 3 times as written and a 4th with some minor alterations)
