Since this is worked continuously, a ch 1 at the beginning of the round is not needed. It is helpful to place a stitch marker on the first stitch of each row.

This crochet stocking will be worked toe-up, leaving space for the heel to be worked last. The colorwork in this pattern will use the split single crochet (ssc) also known as the waistcoat stitch.

Special Stitches:

Split Single Crochet (ssc): Insert hook between the legs of the stitch (on the back of work the hook should be under the horizontal bar and between the upside-down ‘V’ shape as well), yarn over, pull up a loop to the height of a single crochet, yarn over, pull through both loops on hook. Tip: Keep a loose tension so the stitches are easily worked.

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.

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 round.

Color A: Snowbank (white)
Color B: Orca (dark grey)
Color C: Blue Blood (red)
