Crochet Christmas Stocking Pattern

| Crochet

Add some Christmas cheer to your mantle with this free crochet Christmas stocking pattern. The stunning stripped design can be easily made in only two days.

Crochet Christmas Stocking Pattern

Crochet Christmas Stocking Pattern – While I was off recovering from knee surgery I had a lot of time to sit around. Of course, I had prepared for my down time by making a little bin of yarn and hooks to keep beside my bed so that I could crochet. One day, not too long after my surgery, my daughter suggested that I crochet a Christmas stocking…for our cat (um ya, our cat). While I’m pretty sure our cat had no need or desire for a stocking, I liked the idea of trying something new to crochet. I have to say that I’ve never been a huge fan of crochet socks and slippers – mainly because of all the counting you usually have to do.

I set about researching patterns and came across this really cute sock pattern by Maria over at Pattern Paradise that looked relatively easy. After reviewing the pattern, I thought I’d give it a try, turning it from sock into a Christmas stocking. Maria’s pattern is super easy to understand and she goes into great detail and has nice photos to help with the dreaded heel. Seeing as I wasn’t mobile yet I had to use the colors I had on hand so I came up with this slightly unconventional Christmas color palette but I think it works.

This pattern may look complicated but trust me, once you get in the rhythm, you could practically do it in your sleep. I never bother with complicated patterns so I wouldn’t have bothered finishing this if it was too challenging. It took me two evenings to make it so it’s not a huge investment in your time. I love the new crocheted Christmas stocking for our cat (Milo is ever so excited) and think it will be a wonderful addition to our mantle.

Crochet Christmas Stocking Pattern

TERMINOLOGY: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology

SKILL LEVEL: MEDIUM but definitely not hard

MATERIALS:

  • Hook: The original pattern calls for a US I/5.50mm but in the end I think a US J/6.00mm would give the sock a little extra size – better for a stocking.
  • Worsted weight size 4 Yarn – 4 skeins each in 4 different colors 
  • Darning needle & scissors

Size: From toe to heel 7″ long, from heel to top of sock (when folded over) 10″, 4.5″ wide.

Abbreviations:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • sc2tog = single crochet 2 stitches together
  • Xst = Modified X Stitch
  • Color A = Color choice 1
  • Color B = Color choice 2
  • Color C = Color choice 3
  • Color D = Color choice 4

Special Stitch: Modified XSt – X Stitch – Worked over two stitches crossing the second stitch in front of the first stitch and encasing the first stitch within it – think of it as the second stitch hugging the first stitch!  Skip next st, dc in next stitch, working around stitch just made, work dc in skipped stitch.

Crochet - Modified X-Stitch Tutorial. Add some Christmas cheer to your mantle with this free crochet Christmas stocking pattern. The stunning stripped design can be easily made in only two days.

Crochet – Modified X-Stitch Tutorial

Notes:

  • Weave ends as you work
  • Ch1 at beginning of round/row does not count as stitch.
  • Stitch count is in ( ) at end of the round. Stitch count is same as previous round, unless noted.
  • Work instructions in [ ] as designated
  • When a number precedes a stitch, such as 3hdc, work that number of stitches in the next stitch.

Tips:

  • Join each round with sl st to first st. Start each round in the join.
  • Do not fasten off at each color change, instead carry the unused color along inside.
  • Make color change in last pull through of last st before the color change.
  • Refer to Maria’s slipper sock pattern here if you’re having any challenges.

Heel Row 2: Ch1, turn, sc in each st. (18)

Rounds 20 – 44: Repeat rows 5 – 18 two times, excluding row 5 the second time around (see photo for color change example).

Round 45 – 64: With color A, Ch1, sc in each st around, join. (32). Note: In row 35, at the back edge of the sock, I chained 12 and then slipped stitch back into the same stitch to create a little loop for hanging the stocking but this is completely optional.

Round 65: sc in first st, [Ch 4, slip st into st, sc in next st], repeat across row.

Break yarn, weave in ends.

Outlander Cowl Crochet Pattern

| Crochet

Claire's Outlander Crochet Cowl - Free Pattern. Inspired by the knitwear on the Outlander TV series, this Sassenach Cowl is quick and easy to make, even for beginners.

Outlander Cowl Free Crochet Pattern – quick and easy to make, even for beginners.

Outlander Cowl Crochet Pattern – Three weeks ago I underwent knee surgery to fix a chronic knee problem I’d had for many years now. For the first number of days after my surgery, I was lucky enough to have my dear mother-in-law Lynda come and stay with me during the day while my husband was at work. She was a great nurse and during our time together we decided to watch a series called Outlander.

If you’re not familiar with this TV series from Starz, Outlander is a historical time travel drama based on the best-selling books by Diana Gaboldon. The storyline follows the passionate relationship between two lead characters, combat nurse Claire and the chivalrous and handsome Scottish warrior Jamie. Diana Gaboldon is one of my mother’s all-time favorite authors – at times I’m sure my father felt pangs of jealousy the way my mom would blather on and on about leading man Jamie. This American-British series takes place in Scotland during the mid-1700’s. Outlander is worth watching for the scenery and costumes alone. Their costume designer, Terry Dresbach, is simply amazing and she runs a wonderful website full of her sketches and photos of her costumes. The knitwear, in particular, is drool-worthy.

Inspired by Claire’s cowl in Outlander I decided to see if I could come up with something similar. Of course, Claire’s cowl (seen here) is knit so it’s impossible to get the exact same design and drape but I thought I’d give it a go – a great project being that I was bedridden for a couple of weeks. After a few attempts, I finally settled on this design.

It’s very easy and works up really quickly – this can be done in one evening. I loved the first one I did so much I made a second cowl with a different yarn.

The outlander cowl is very easy and works up really quickly – this can be done in one evening. I loved the first one I did so much I made a second cowl with a different yarn.

OUTLANDER CROCHET COWL PATTERN

NOTES: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology

SKILL LEVEL: EASY

MATERIALS:

  • Hook: U.S. P/11.5mm
  • Worsted weight size 4 Yarn – Right now we’re loving Cascade 220.  It’s 100% wool, and is completely soft and cozy.  You’ll need about 3 skeins/ 128 yds each. 
  • Darning Needle & Scissors

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • hdc = half double crochet

FINISHED SIZE:  17” tall, 28” circumference.

NOTES: Making a half double-crochet in the back loop isn’t as scary as it sounds. If you’re not familiar with crocheting this way see the photo below to help you know where to find the back loop. To crochet in the back loop of a stitch, insert your crochet hook underneath the back loop only and make your hdc as usual.

How to crochet in the back loop. The front loop is the one that is closest to you and the back loop is the one that is furthest from you when you hold your crochet work.

The front loop is the one that is closest to you and the back loop is the one that is furthest from you when you hold your crochet work.

PATTERN:

Made by holding 2 pieces of yarn together throughout the pattern.

Make a slip knot and chain 32.

ROW 1: hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook, hdc in each st across row, ch 2, turn.

ROW 2 onwards: hdc in the back loop of each st across the row, ch 2, turn. Repeat row 2 until the total length reaches 28” in length.

Finish: Carefully sew those two edges together from the inside/wrong side using the whip stitch and weave in ends.
