8 sc = 4 inches [10 cm] with one strand each of A and B held tog. 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


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.

With 1 strand each of A and B held tog, ch 24 and join with a slip stitch, being careful not to twist.
Single crochet in each chain around – 23 sc; join with slip stitch to first single crochet, ch 1, turn.
Work even in sc for 8 inches [20.5 cm] from beginning.

Sc in first 10 sts; ch 1, turn.
Next Row Sc2tog, sc 6, sc2tog – 8 sts; ch 1, turn.
Next Row Sc2tog, sc 4, sc2tog – 6 sts; ch 1, turn.
Next Row Sc2tog, sc 2, sc2tog – 4 sts; ch 1, turn.
Next Row Sc2tog twice – 2 sts; ch 1, turn.
Next Row 2 sc.

Sc 2 heel sts, 4 sc down side of decrease rows, 13 sc, 4 sc up other side of decreases, join with slip stitch – 23 sts; ch 1, turn. Work even on 23 sts until foot measures 4 inches [10 cm].

Decrease 3 stitches on each of next 6 rows, using sc2tog evenly spaced – 5 sts. Cut yarn and draw through all 5 sts to close toe. Fasten off.

Divide C into 3 equal balls. With WS facing and 3 strands of C held tog, attach yarn and sc in each sc around – 23 sts. Work even on these stitches until cuff measures 2 inches [5 cm]. Fasten off. Fold cuff to right side at halfway point.

Furry Santa Stocking Reviewed by Shari S. Cain on 2008-11-22 *****
This is a fantastic and fun pattern. It's very easy and comes out looking wonderful! I made them for my nieces and nephews and everyone was so impressed. They are very soft, unlike anything else and beautiful. Great craft, great pattern and easy!
