How to Crochet your Mini Stocking Advent Ornament:

You’ll work the stocking beginning with the toe, then the heel, then up to the top. 

R1: Using red, 6 sc into a magic ring. (6)

R2: 2 sc in each st around. (12)

R3: (Sc, 2 sc) 6x around. (18)

R4: (Sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc) 6x around. (24)

R5-R12: Sc in each st around. 

Do not fasten off, but leave red yarn attached. You’ll pick it back up again in Round 18. 

You’ll now be working the heel of the stocking in turned rows. 

R13-R17: Using cream, sc in next 12 sts, ch 1, turn. (12)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail.  Use this tail and yarn needle to sew the “back” of the heel together. Weave in end. 

R18: Picking up red, sc evenly into the ends of the cream rows and unworked red stitches from Round 12. (24)

R19-R24: Sc in each st around.

R25: Using cream, in front loops only, sc in each st around.  R26: Sc in each st around. Sl st, ch 26, sl st in same stitch. This creates a loop for hanging the ornament. Fasten off and weave in end.
