Pattern for stockings made out of double crochet.
I used yarn from Nille, Strømpegarn = yarn for stockings. For stockings i prefer to use yarn that has 20 – 40 percent acrylic and 60 – 80 perscent wool, then it won’t felt when you wash the stockings.
- Hook 4 mm
- 35-37: 40 stitches
- 38-41: 48 stitches
- 42-45: 52 stitches
I name the sizes like this: (35-37), (38-41), 42-45. Measure your foot for the right length.
- ch: chain stitches
- dc: double crochet
- sl st: slip stitch
- r: round
- st: stitch
Magic ring: ch 3=1 dc + 11 dc. Fasten round with sl st.
Ch 3=1 dc, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st* repeat from * to *, fasten r with sl st (18)
Ch 3=1 dc, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st* repeat from * to *, fasten r with sl st. (26).
Ch 3=1 dc, 1 dc in next 2 st. *2 in next st, 1 dc in next 3 st* repeat from * to *, fasten round with sl st. (33)
Ch 3=1 dc, 1 dc in next 2 st. *2 in next st, 1 dc in next 3 st* repeat from * to *, (41). Fore size 35-37: skip the last increase to get 40 st. Go to «Ribbed cuff», or go to 6. round for size 38-41.
- For size 38-41 increase:
Chain 3=1 dc, 4 dc, 2 in next st. *5 dc, 2 in next st*, repeat from * to *. Increase 1 extra dc in the end of the round to get 48 st. Fasten round with sl st. Go to «Ribbed cuff» or go to 7. round for size 41-45.
For size 42-45, increase to 52 st.
Continue to crohet with dc. If you like, you can use the same technique as used in ribbed cuffs on top of foot: For this technique crochet 2 dc in front of the dc in previous round, and then 2 dc in back of the dc in previous round. Look at the pictures how tom make a front post dc and back post dc, but do not skip stitches like I did in the pictures – these pictures are from another project. Use dc for the stockings, not treble crochet as used on the project in the pictures.
This is back post double crochet.
Chain 3=1 dc, (9), (11), 12 dc, *2 back post dc, 2 front post dc* repeat from * to * until you haves (20), (24), 26 st. Continue with (10), (12), 13 ordinary dc, fasten round with sl st. Repeat until the foot is long enough to start on heel. Se picture on the right.
(5), (6), 7 sl st. See picutre.
Turn and chain 3=1 dc, crochet (9), (11), 12 dc. Crochet in rows with (10), (12), 13 dc in each row. Make 5 rows.
Start as shown in picture to make the sides of the heel. Crochet (5), (6), 7 on side, (10), (12), 12 dc on back and (5), (6), 7 on side. Make 3 rows, or as many as you need to reach the ribs on the foot.

Make 3 rows or as many as you need to reach the ribbed cuff on top of the foot: This is marked («Til vrangobrd») in picture. Continue in rounds and make the ribbed cuff as high as you like it to be. Weave in end.
