    Alpine Christmas stocking description

    The free alpine Christmas stocking crochet pattern has the most amazing texture and its a no-sew pattern too. The stocking itself is made in one-piece and the cuff is made separately. I just love the texture of this stocking! That being said I’ve always been a big fan of the alpine stitch and what’s more festive than alpines, right? I just can’t wait to make more of these ready for Christmas.

    This crochet Christmas stocking is made using the alpine stitch giving it the most gorgeous texture. Similarly, the cuff of the stocking is ribbed and folded over to create a contrast and traditional Christmas look. Additionally, the Christmas stocking is full sized and perfect to hang up over your fireplace.

    How to crochet an alpine stitch Christmas stocking

    The alpine Christmas stocking crochet pattern is intermediate skill level. You will of course need to know all of your basic crochet stitches as well as knowing how to work into back loops and front loops. Importantly you’ll need to know how to drop down to work into the previous row. The Christmas stocking itself is made in one piece, the cuff is made separately and is crocheted on, there’s no sewing involved. To make the stocking I used aran (weight 4) yarn in two colours. As you can see I used silver and white but you can use any colours you like.

    Pattern notes

    I do not count chains in my stitch count.

    Numbers in brackets are the number of rounds/stitches.

    Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch.

    All front post stitches are made into the dc’s in the round below your last round.
