Tip: Keep a loose tension so the stitches are easily worked. https://brianakdesigns.com/split-single-crochet-round-flat/

**Magic Circle: **Start by creating a loop with your yarn. The tail of the working yarn will be over the working end. Insert your hook into the loop from behind. Yarn over and pull through the loop. Work the stitches as instructed into the loop. https://brianakdesigns.com/magic-crochet-circle-ring/

**Notes for the Crochet Stocking**

**How to read the colorwork instructions:**

In the colorwork section Color A will be abbreviated as (A), and Color B as (B).

Example: (B) x 9 = with Color B ssc the next 9 stitches

The chart will be worked from right to left for each round and repeated until the end of the

If you would like to only use two colors, that’s perfectly fine! If you would like to rotate your

color B to change in some sections like the example, that can be done as well.

**Chart for the Knit Stocking Leg**

**Ribbing Cuff of the Knit Stocking**

Rnd 1: With Color B (or your color of choice), *k1, p1*; repeat from * to * around.

Repeats: Work ribbing until the cuff measures 4 inches or 6 inches, depending on the desired

height of the cuff.

**Heel of the Knit Stocking**

**Rnd 1: **Place held stitches back on needles, (22 sts along the top of the heel and 22 sts along the

bottom of the heel). If there is a gap on each side of the heel we can use our tail end to close those up later. 44 sts

**Rnd 2:** (ssk, k18, k2tog) two times. 40 sts

**Rnd 3: **(ssk, k16, k2tog) two times. 36 sts

**Rnd 4:** (ssk, k14, k2tog) two times. 32 sts

**Rnd 5:** (ssk, k12, k2tog) two times. 28 sts

**Rnd 6:** (ssk, k10, k2tog) two times. 24 sts

**Rnd 7:** (ssk, k8, k2tog) two times. 20 sts

**Rnd 8:** (ssk, k6, k2tog) two times. 16 sts

**Rnd 9: **Knit. 16 sts

Fasten off, leaving enough tail length for closing the opening. Place your tapestry needle

on the tail end and slip the remaining stitches to the tapestry needle. Pull to close the

opening and weave in the end. Fasten off the remaining tail.

**Finishing the Knit Stocking**

Use a strip of leather and a leather punch to create a strap and stitch to the top of the stocking. (see video)

Or create an i-cord.
