The Faux Fur Christmas Stocking is a free crochet pattern and ideal for a quick project. You can crochet it in different colors and make this suzette stocking for the entire family.
Christmas is literally around the corner. An easy fix for old, tired Christmas decorations is making crochet stockings. Nothing is better than actually making your own stockings.
So, I designed the Faux Fur Christmas Stocking to be easy and quick to make. And the Faux Fur cuff makes it super snuggly. Although you can make the stocking in any color you wish, the purple for sure is a traditional Christmas color shining bright and powerful during the Holiday Season.
Furthermore, it shows off beautifully the amazing WeCrochet yarn selection of Mighty Stitch Yarn as well as Fable Fur Yarn, both of which were provided to me in a partnership with WeCrochet. The yarns are both easy to use and are super soft. In fact, the Mighty stitch has a satiny feel to it and makes it extra soft.
So let me now give you the list of supplies you need in order to crochet this beautiful Faux Fur Christmas Stocking.
This pattern is also available as an ad-free, printer-friendly pdf pattern that can be purchased at the links below for only a small fee.

Instructions for Faux Fur Christmas Stocking:
This pattern starts out at the toe, then you work the foot, heel, leg and finally the cuff.
Using your 4.0mm hook, make a magic ring and add 6 sc, close the hole and then use a stitch marker as you work in continues rounds
R1: 2sc into each stitch till the end (12 sts)
R2: *1sc, 2sc next stitch, repeat from * till the end (18 sts)
R3: *1sc in the next 2 sts, 2sc next stitch, repeat from * till the end (24 sts)
R4: *1sc in the next 3 sts, 2sc next stitch, repeat from * till the end (30 sts)
R5: *1sc in the next 4 sts, 2sc next stitch, repeat from * till the end (36 sts)
R6: *1sc in the next 5 sts, 2sc next stitch, repeat from * till the end (42 sts)
R7-12: 1sc in each stitch till the end (42 sts)
R13-35: *1 suzette stitch, sk 1 st, repeat from * till the end
You will now work the heel in rows before going back into rounds working on the leg.
R1: 1 sc in the next 20 sts, turn
R2: 1sc dec, 1 sc in the next 16 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R3: 1 sc in each st, turn
R4: 1sc dec, 1 sc in the next 14 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R5: repeat R3
R6: 1sc dec, 1 sc in the next 12 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R7: repeat R3
R8: 1sc dec, 1 sc in the next 10 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R9: repeat R3
R10: 1sc dec, 1 sc in the next 8 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R11: repeat R3
R12: 1sc inc, 1 sc in the next 8 sts, 1 sc inc, turn
R13: repeat R3
R14: 1sc inc, 1 sc in the next 10 sts, 1 sc inc, turn
R15: repeat R3
R16: 1sc inc, 1 sc in the next 12 sts, 1 sc inc, turn
R17: repeat R3
R18: 1sc inc, 1 sc in the next 14 sts, 1 sc inc, turn
R19: repeat R3
R20: 1sc inc, 1 sc in the next 16 sts, 1 sc inc, turn
R21: repeat R3
Do not cut the yarn. Now fold the feel flap such that the first row touches the last row. Sew the sides (where the increasing side touches the decreasing side) together with the piece of the yarn from the skein. You now created the heel.
You will now start crocheting in continuous rounds again in the same pattern as before. You want to make sure the foot pattern matches the leg pattern.
R36-65: *1 suzette stitch, sk 1 st, repeat from * till the end
You will now finish off the stocking by adding the faux fur yarn.
Switch crochet hooks to the 6.0mm and attach the fable fur yarn.
R66: 1 sc into each dc (of the suzette stitch) until the end of the round
R67-72: 1 sc in each st till the end
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Fold over the faux fur cuff. Now just attach part of the fable fur yarn to the part where the suzette stitch meets the fable fur yarn, so that you have a way to hang the stocking.
