    Large Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern

    This large Christmas stocking crochet pattern uses super bulky blanket yarn and is spacious enough to hold some seriously sizeable gifts from a very generous Santa Claus! The giant, oversized Christmas stocking is also still big enough to hang by the fire during the holiday season. The super bulky Christmas stocking has a beautiful, modern texture made using the mini bean (Elizabeth) stitch. You might also enjoy my other free crochet patterns for Christmas or Winter.

    How to crochet a large Christmas stocking

    This festive crochet pattern is intermediate skill level due to the mini bean stitch. Don’t worry if you haven’t tried it, the instructions are included. But be warned, it is a very addictive crochet stitch! A huge bonus for this crochet pattern is that the Christmas stocking works up really quickly, in one piece, with no sewing, and with just one large skein of yarn!

    Pattern notes

    • I do not count chains or slip stitches in my stitch count. Numbers in brackets are the number of stitches in the row.
    • Ensure you make your finishing slip stitch into the stitch, and not the chain to avoid gaps.
    • Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc,dc) would mean sc in the first stich, dc in the second stitch. eg. (2hdc, hdc x 2) would mean 2hdc in the first stitch, 1hdc in the second stitch, 1hdc in the third stich.
