If you are looking for an easy one piece crochet stocking pattern that is quick and beginner friendly, give this one a try!

The Noel Christmas Stocking is made from the toe up in continuous rounds of crochet – that means you won’t join each round as you go, which will eliminate a seam and give your stocking a really clean look. 

Even the heel of this easy crochet stocking pattern is worked into the one piece design, so you won’t fasten off your yarn at any point of this pattern. 

When you do get to the heel section of the pattern, just follow the written instructions to work back and forth in simple rows – it’s that easy!

Then, the shaft and hook hanger are added in the same seamless and clean rounds of continuous crochet work, making this a really easy crochet stocking pattern to work up!

You’ll be able to quickly crochet this stocking pattern because it only calls for simple stitches: chain, single crochet, slip stitch.

That’s it – even a beginner can crochet this easy stocking pattern!

If you’ve never worked in continuous rounds of single crochet before, this pattern will walk you through each round of repeats (including the end stitch counts) so that you’ll have exactly what you need to make the perfect stocking.

An interesting feature in this pattern is that it can be worked in so many different color combinations: solid, variegated, stripes, a new color for every round – each stocking you make can be totally unique!  

In addition to the color, you can choose a yarn you already have on hand, or one you really love, to work up a stocking – you don’t have to feel stuck choosing the same yarn weight or type that the pattern calls for. 

The yarn weight will change the overall measurement of the stocking, which is okay! If you’re not sure how your stocking will size up with the yarn you choose, just use our quick guide to help you measure as you go:

  • 9.5” around x 10.75” tall
  • 10.75” around x 12.5” tall

  • You can use yarn you already have on hand!
  • These make great gifts for the holiday season!
  • These projects use very little yarn, so they’re great stash-busters!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: Yarn and color choice, continuous rounds, simple stitch and round repeats, shaping, one-piece project with dimension, finishing techniques & more!

    I have done stockings in the past which is a great way to use up scrap yarn! Thank you for this great design!!!

  2. I just finished making a bunch of your stockings as quick, fun gifts to give out. 🙂 Thanks for all your wonderful patterns!

  3. Very clever design and it creates a unique look. I think it would be perfect for those still learning stitches and how to identify them. I need to try this one for fun.

  4. I taught myself to crochet at age 12, I would go to Good Will to get yarn and hooks, so I could make things for people. Since I joined ACA I have learned quite a few new techniques and problem solving issue. This looks almost like the stocking I make at 13 only the heel was not rounded.
