Christmas Stocking Crochet Patterns

Whether you’re tired of your family’s stockings not matching or simply want to create a new look for your living room at Christmas time, crocheted Christmas stockings make a fun, cozy holiday project. 

In this post, I’ve collected all kinds of stocking patterns, from farmhouse to vintage granny squares to festive bobbles and pompoms (there’s even a stocking for your pup!). Take a look, and you’re sure to find something you love!

Many of these free Christmas crochet stocking patterns are perfect for beginners. If you’re in a hurry (we all know how fast Christmas sneaks up on us!), choose a design made with bulky yarn, which tends to work up more quickly. 

Love crocheting Christmas stockings? Stockings also make excellent gifts for friends, family, and neighbors. Or, if you really get in the groove, make up a bunch to sell online or at your local craft fair.

What is the Best Yarn for Crochet Christmas Stockings?

The most popular yarn for crochet stockings is worsted-weight yarn. Worsted weight is durable – perfect for stockings that your family can enjoy year after year. 

Some of the most popular yarns for crocheted Christmas stockings include Lion Brand Vanna’s ChoiceRed Heart Super Saver, and Lily Sugar ‘N Cream. For an average-size Christmas stocking, you will need approximately 200 yards of yarn (but check your specific pattern to be sure).
