How To Make

Solid Colour Stocking Pattern

 

This pattern is worked in rounds joining each round with a slip stitch. Sometimes the slip stitch is worked as a normal slip stitch and sometimes it is worked into the back loop only, this will be indicated on the pattern for each round. Use the stitch marker as guided below to mark the start of each round. Once you reach the stitch marker you will be instructed to slip stitch into the marked stitch. At this point you can remove the stitch marker ready to mark your first stitch of the next round.

 

The solid colour pattern uses 2 colours called yarn A and B.

 

TOE – worked in yarn A

 

Using yarn A make a magic loop

Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as stitch), 6DC into loop, close loop and slip stitch into first DC (6 stitches)

Round 2: 2HTC in each stitch round marking first HTC with a stitch marker. At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker (12 stitches)

Round 3: 2HTC in next stitch marking first HTC with a stitch marker.  1 HTC in next stitch. Repeat *2HTC, 1HTC* 5 more times to complete round. At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker (18 stitches)

Round 4: 1 HTC in each stitch round marking first HTC with stitch marker. At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker (18 stitches)

Rounds 5 – 7: Repeat Round 4 three more times. Remove hook and insert stitch marker to keep stitch secure. You will pick this stitch up later to continue working in rounds so don’t cut the yarn.

 

 

HEEL – worked in yarn B

 

Step 1: Skip next 3 stitches and fasten yarn B onto 4th stitch. Hook yarn through stitch to create a loop, pull yarn through to make a slip stitch.

Step 2: In next 11 stitches around complete the following stitches; DC, HTC, HTC, TC, TC, TC, TC, TC, HTC, HTC, DC, normal slip stitch into the next stitch and turn work.

Step 3: Work back along the stitches you have just created with the following stitches; DC, HTC, HTC, TC, TC, TC, TC, TC, HTC, HTC, DC, normal slip stitch into the stitch where you first joined yarn B and turn work.

Step 4: Work back along the stitches you have just created with the following stitches; DC, HTC, HTC, TC, TC, TC, TC, TC, HTC, HTC, DC, normal slip stitch into the next stitch where yarn A and B join then fasten off yarn B.

 

 

BODY OF STOCKING  – worked in yarn A

 

Continue rounds from toe in yarn A

 

Round 8: Insert hook back into yarn A and HTC in each stitch round (18 stitches in total) marking the first HTC with a stitch marker. Note: your 4th HTC should be in the stitch space where the heel joins the toe and the 16th HTC will be in the last stitch of the heel. HTC 17 and 18 will be back into the remaining stitches of yarn A.

At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker. (18 stitches)

 

Round 9: HTC in each stitch round marking first HTC with stitch marker. At end of round slip stitch into the back loop only of the first HTC marked with stitch marker. (18 stitches)

 

Round 10 – 12: Repeat Round 9 three more times. For the very last slip stitch use yarn B to complete the slip stitch into the back loop only which joins yarn B ready for the next round. You may cut yarn A at this point if you wish as you no longer need it. (18 stitches)

 

 

TRIM OF STOCKING – worked in yarn B

 

Round 13: With yarn B HTC in each stitch round marking first HTC with stitch marker. At end of round do a normal slip stitch into first HTC marked with stitch marker (18 stitches)

 

Round 14: Normal slip stitch into next 7 stitches marking the first stitch with a stitch marker, Ch 6, slip stitch into remaining 11 stitches. Make one last slip stitch into the top loop only of the first slip stitch marked with the stitch marker. Cut the yarn and pull through off hook. Sew end in going from front to back of stocking to complete round neatly.

 

Sew in all ends.

 

 

 

Striped Stocking Pattern

 

This pattern is also worked in rounds using 2 colours (yarn A and B) to create the stripes and a third colour (yarn C) to create the heel and trim. Each round is completed with a slip stitch and you carry the 2 yarns up the inside of the stocking swapping between stripes so there is no need to cut the yarn at the end of each round. Sometimes the slip stitch is worked as a normal slip stitch and sometimes it is worked into the back loop only, this will be indicated on the pattern for each round. Use the stitch marker as guided below to mark the start of each round. Once you reach the stitch marker you will be instructed to slip stitch into the marked stitch. At this point you can remove the stitch marker ready to mark your first stitch of the next round.

    These look great, and I thought I would like to give them a try. But the “Add to Basket” button doesn’t seem to work. When I checked the individual stock, the white is out of stock and is due back in stock in “2-3 months”! What a pity as the white really makes these pretty little stockings. It looks like I will be buying my cotton yarn elsewhere for this project.
