Mini Cuffed Christmas Stocking Pattern

Posted on October 1, 2016

I make many mini Christmas stockings each year for the Warmth for Warriors group. I decided I wanted to try a new crochet pattern to change things up a bit on my stocking making and came up with this new pattern. I took my cuffed baby booties pattern and tweaked it to create this mini cuffed Christmas stocking. The pattern is easy and can be crocheted in less than an hour plus it is free so enjoy the crochet pattern below.

Mini Christmas Cuffed Stocking Pattern

Crochet hook: H (5 mm) hook
Yarn: 3/4 oz Worst Weight Yarn (42-50 yards depending on yarn)
Finished size: 6 inches tall, 4.75” wide at toe, & 2.75” wide at top.

Rnd 1
Ch 2, work 9 Sc in 2nd ch from hook. (You can also start with a magic circle and work 9 Sc’s in circle.) Don’t join as the toe section is worked in rounds without joining. Place a stitch marker at the beginning of each round. (9 sts)
Rnd 2
Work 2 Sc in ea st around. (18 sts)
Rnd 3-8
Sc in ea st around. (18 sts) (2” long & 2.75” wide flat at this point for the toe portion)

Upper Leg:
Ch 12 from the toe for Christmas stocking with cuff. (See photo below)

Row 1
Sc in the 2nd ch from hook and work down the chain by working a Sc in each of the 11 ch sts. Then Sc into the base and around in each of the 18 sts around stocking, and in each chain on the opposite side of the beginning chain. Ch 1 and turn. (40 sts)

Row 2-8
Sc in each st down the front leg portion and around the stocking and then back up to the top of the other side of the front leg portion. Ch 1 and turn.

Row 9
Sc in the next 18 st, work 1 SC Dec over the next two sts, then work 1 SC Dec over the next two sts (2 dec’s worked). Sc in each of the last 18 sts. Ch 1 and turn.

Tip: Decreases are worked at heel back on each side of heel fold.

Row 10
Sc in the next 17 st, work 1 SC Dec over the next two sts, then work 1 SC Dec over the next two sts (2 dec’s worked). Sc in each of the last 17 sts.

FO sock and leave a long 10 inch tail to close the end of the heel with a whip stitch.

Trim: Using contrasting yarn if desired, Sc around inside top edge evenly and turn under cuff so the trim stitching is facing out to right side.

Attach yarn at back and Ch 10 at back edge for hanging loop. Weave under all ends under cuff.

    I keep getting a rounded top edge, and yours shows squared off. I have frogged it 4 times, though same each time. What am doing wrong?

    @Allie, You want to turn and go back down on the upper leg portion by working SC into the stitches that you just came up from. You do not go around the top of the front of the leg portion. I just heard back from you earlier and understand that you figured it out now. Please let me know if you need any further help.
