You’ve got your Christmas tree up, the festive chocolates are already half-eaten and Michael Bublé is on repeat. But, what’s missing? A Christmas stocking, of course! Where else is Santa going to leave his presents? Don’t worry, if you’re looking for the perfect seasonal stocking to flex your crochet skills AND hold all of your presents (crochet kits ain’t small!), I’ve got you. This fun festive crochet Christmas stocking is made up of interlocking hexagons, so it’s quick and simple to make. Even better? You’ll be able to cram in some Christmas movies while you hook it up.

A crochet christmas stocking made of white, green and red hexagons is hanging on a festively dressed white fireplace.

This crochet Christmas stocking is a little bit different to most of my tutorials – because it’s made using hexagons there isn’t much of a pattern to follow once you’ve mastered the hexi. However there is a trick in sewing them together to form a stocking. So, I’m going to be sharing info on how to make the hexagons and then how to attach them.

Let’s start with the basics, how do you make a crochet hexagon?

Hexagon Stitch Pattern

To begin: In colour A, chain 4, insert hook into the first chain to make a circle

Round 1: Ch3, tr, ch2, *2tr, ch2* 5 times, connect into the 3rd chain from the bottom.

The chain 2 spaces have made the ‘Corners’

Round 2: Change to colour B, ch3, tr into the top of stitch, tr in space, *ch2, tr in corner, tr into top of next two stitch, tr into same corner* 5 times, ch2, tr into corner, connect into third chain from the bottom.

Round 3: Change to colour C, ch3, tr in next 2stitches, tr in corner, ch2, *tr in corner, tr in next 4 stitches, tr in corner, ch2* 5 times, tr in corner, tr in top on stitch, connect and tie off.
