Lion Brand® Lion® Chenille - Fun Fur®


14 sc + 13 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with MC.

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


With MC, ch 43. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 42 sts. Work even in sc until piece measures 8 inches from beg. Fasten off.


With MC, skip first 32 sts, attach yarn and sc in last 10 sc; bring beg edge around and sc across first 11 sc; turn – 21 sts.

Row 1 Ch 1, sc in first 14 sc; turn.

Row 2 Ch 1, sc in first 7 sc; turn.

Row 3 Ch 1, sc in first 7 sc, sc in next sc in row below; turn – 8 sts.

Row 4 Ch 1, sc in first 8 sc, sc in next sc in row below; turn – 9 sts.

Continue to work as for last 2 rows, adding one more st before sc in row below, until all 21 heel sts have been worked. Fasten off.


Skip first 10 sc of Heel, attach MC, and sc across remaining 11 Heel sts. Skip first sc of Leg, sc across next 19 sc, skip last sc of Leg, sc across remaining 10 sc of heel – 40 sc. Ch 1, turn. Work even in sc over these 40 sts until Foot measures 4 inches.


First Half Sc across first 20 sc; turn. Continue on these 20 sts in sc, dec 1 st at each end every row until 2 sts remain. Fasten off.

Second Half Work as for first half of toe.


Attach CC at beg ch edge of Stocking and work 42 dc across. Work 7 more rows dc. Fasten off.


Sew back seam. Sew toe and foot seams. Sew small holes at sides of heel created by skipped sts. Turn cuff to RS and sew down with CC.


Attach MC at back seam just below top of cuff. Ch 12, slip st to attaching space. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

It is a fairly simple pattern to follow, however, when you get to the toe I would suggest stopping when the count gets down to 6 sc not 2 sc. Going all the way down to 2 makes the stocking quite pointy and starts looking like the front of a stiletto. Overall, it is a decent pattern. Thank you!
