How to crochet a Christmas stocking from a hexagon?

Over the last month, I realized I want to make more simple, yet modern patterns! in addition, this will give beginner crocheters a chance to create stunning pieces and expand their skills gradually!

What better way to start than a Christmas project, right?

To create this gorgeous Christmas stocking we will start with a granny hexagon. In the first round, we will create a hexagon with 6 corners.

Later we will use these corners to increase the size of our hexagon. Afterward, we will start shaping the stocking by adding one decrease on only one side!

At the end, we will join the hexagon into a stocking shape and add the cuff.

Why you will love this pattern

  • Create a beautiful and unique Christmas stocking with this beginner-friendly crochet pattern.
  • Understand and master the hexagon stitch to create the stocking’s unique six-sided shape.
  • Personalize your stocking and add embellishments to make it truly one-of-a-kind.

The Yarn

The first step in selecting your yarn is to consider the weight. For this project, we recommend using a medium-weight yarn (also known as worsted weight or Aran weight). But the gauge is not important, and you can use whatever yarn you have in your stash!

The yarn I used is Lionbrand Vanna’s choice yarn and I love this yarn in red sparkle.

As we use the granny stitch for our hexagon you can use all of the oddballs of leftover yarn you have in your stash! The granny stitch is one of the stitches that looks amazing in any color scheme and order!

Materials you’ll need:

  • worsted weight yarn- I used Lionbrand Vanna’s choice yarn in white, green, and blue. I also used I love this yarn sparkle in red
  • Crochet hook size 5 mm
  • tapestry needle and a pair of scissors


cluster- make 3 DC stitches in the same space

ch-1 sp- the space created by chaining 1 in the previous round

ch-2 sp – the space created by chaining 2 in the previous round

DC- double crochet

SS- slip stitch

Pattern notes:

The body of the stocking is made of one hexagon! we will start from the middle and continue increasing till 6 rounds! Afterward, we will start decreasing only on one side to form the feet.

Later, we will join with a single crochet the sides to form the stocking. In the end, we will add the cuff and the hanger.

After the first round, your hexagon will start to curl. It is natural so don’t be afraid. We want it to curl so we can fold and shape it in a sock shape.

The initial chain 2 or 3 is counted as a stitch!

At the end of each round, we will slip stitch in the 3rd chain of initial ch 3 to join!

When attaching a new color always start from the first corner!

The colors used are not listed in the order I used them. we will refer to each new color with a letter. they are just suggestions.

Rnd 9: Repeat round 8 (9 clusters per side) FO.

The hexagon is done and ready to be turned into a stocking! You will notice that the side that we have made the decreases is slightly curled in the center.

Take both corners of that side and pinch them together! Flatten your piece and it will form as a sock or as an L with the short side facing to the left. The side with the decrease should be your toes part of the stocking.

Take the color you used in your last round and join the outer side with a slip stitch or single crochet. I used slip stitch as it is more flat than the single crochet!

How to crochet a cuff for the hexagon stocking?

Rnd 1: Take a contrast color and attach it to the first stitch of the stocking opening and pull up a loop, ch 3, make DC into each stitch and into each ch-1 sp around, SS to join (37 sts)

Rnd 2: ch 3, * FPDC in next, BPDC in next* repeat around, SS to join (37)

Repeat round 2 till you reach the desired length for your cuff. I made 5 rounds for mine and the length of mine is 2.5 inches.

Alternative cuff:

If it is hard for you to work the FPDC and BPDC stitches you can replace them with DC or SC stitches. To make a ribbed cuff you can see the video tutorial of the Alpine stocking!

Adding the hanging loop.

Insert your hook in the last stitch of the last round and pull up a loop, Ch 15, SC in 2nd from your hook, sc in each stitch across, SS in same last stitch of the last round to form a loop.

How to turn your hexagon stocking into a Snowman stocking?

To crochet a snowman stocking you need to work the entire hexagon in white color! Later you will add two buttons for the eyes, a crochet carrot nose, and a scarf.

When you work in one color after you join each round you will slip stitch in each stitch till you reach the next ch-1 space. This will help you avoid the visible seam and your stocking will look nicer on both sides!

PRO TIP: Sew the eye buttons and the nose before you join your stocking. It will be easier!
