The Luxe Boho Christmas Stocking is a free crochet pattern at Nana’s Crafty Home!
This crochet stocking is so much fun with cute tassel edging and it works up quickly with bulky yarn so you have plenty of time to make one for everyone this year!
This stocking features the Linked Double Crochet (LDC) Stitch. The LDC stitch is a simple variation of the double crochet stitch which creates a more dense fabric without gaps – perfect for stockings. No one wants things poking out of their stocking so using a stitch without the gaps works perfectly.
The complete video tutorial is now available and you can find it here. I also have the Linked Double Crochet stitch tutorial available for you to check out now as well as a tutorial that will help you make the tassels! Remember to subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you never miss a new video.

Made with the bulky Lion Brand Color Made Easy yarn* this stocking is quick to make yet feels so soft and luxe! And with 22 color options – you are sure to find the perfect match for your own holiday decor!

Notes about pattern:
- Main body of stocking is worked in continuous rounds without joining. Initial 3 sc in MC do not count as stitches – they provide lift to LDC of 1st round.
- Heel is worked in rows, folded and seamed to stocking.
- Mark 1st stitch of each round with stitch marker and move up each round.
- Stocking is worked from the toe up worked in sections: toe, instep, heel, ankle and cuff.
- Stocking can be worked in 1 solid color or use a coordinating 2nd color for the toe, heel & cuff.
With Color A, make a MC.
Rnd 1: (RS) ch 1, 3 sc in MC (do not count as stitches), 1 dc in MC (place stitch marker – 1st stitch of round), 7 LDC in MC, 1 LDC in 3 sc st from beginning of round. Do not sl st join. (11)
Rnd 2: 2 LDC in each st around (move up st marker to 1st st of each round). (22)
Rnd 3: *2 LDC in next st, 1 LDC in next st,* repeat between * * to end. (33)
Rnd 4: 1 LDC in each st. (33)
Rnd 5: With Color A repeat round 4. (33)
Fasten off Color A
Rnd 6 – 14: With Color B repeat round 4. (33)
Fasten off Color B
Note: Place stitch marker in last st of round 14. This will mark where to attach yarn for round 15 when you start the ankle instructions.
Note: You will now be working in turned rows across half of your stocking. Once heel is crocheted, you will fasten off to seam and create heel.
Row 1: With Color A, ch 1, 1 sc in same st, 1 sc in next 15 st. Turn. Note: Leave remaining stitches unworked. (16)
Row 2: ch 1, sc2tog, 1 sc in each st to last 2 st, sc2tog. Turn. (14)
Row 3 – 8: repeat row 2 (st count = 2 at end of row 8). Turn.
Row 9: ch 1, 1 sc in each st. Turn. (2)

Fold flap together, whip st ends of rows 9 – 16 to ends of rows 1 – 8.

(36) Note: You will have a total of 33 stitches to work in and you will work 3 additional LDC in this round. Work 1 stitch at the beginning and 2 on the front side of the stocking where the heel and instep meet. This will eliminate gaps and give us the correct number of stitches before moving on to the remainder of the stocking.
