Vintage Style Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern

When I look back to my memories of Christmas as a child my Christmas Stocking always stands out. Each of us children had a stocking with our name written in a gold glitter glue. We would find the one with our names on it and put it out in anticipation of Santa filling it up with fruit, nuts, chocolate, and a little toy. The Christmas Stocking is definitely a Christmas Tradition that many of us share.


When I set out to find a crochet pattern of a vintage style Christmas stocking I didn't have much luck. I decided to create my own, and after making these for the past three years I decided it is time to share the pattern with you! The best part about this pattern is that you can add appliques to make each stocking unique and special for the child (or adult) who is receiving it. See a few of mine below.

Assembling the stocking

Lay panels together with both toes pointing left. SC down the left side until you reach the last stitch before the turn, DEC at turn.




SC around the remainder of the edge and INC into the STS at each of the corners indicated in the photos below.



When you reach the top right-hand corner of the stocking, CH 25, SLST into the same space as the last SC. This creates the stocking hanger.




Working around the opening at the top of the stocking, INC into the first stitch of the front panel, SC across to last stitch on front panel, INC, INC into the first stitch on back panel, SC across to the last stitch on back panel, INC, SLST into first stitch of round. (74)


Change to White

Row 1: SC around the entire opening of the stocking replacing SC stitches with LSC stitches ar varying intervals and lengths to create the appearance of icicles. Join the last stitch to the first stitch of round with a SLST, ch1. (74)




Row 2: SC around, join, ch1. (74)

Row 3: HDC around, join, ch1. (74)

Rows 4 – 9 repeat rows 2 – 3

Row 10: SC around, join, F/O leaving a long tail. Using a large needle, secure the hanging strap to the white section of the stocking with the tail.





Here are a few samples of the decorations I have added to mine.
