Hey Lovelies! Every year I think I need to make an actual stocking for myself to hang at my place. But I’ve never done it so far, only crocheted small ones. This year is no different, but I hope you like this little one, even when you can’t stuff him!
For this pattern you’ll need:
♥ Yarn in the colors Red and White. (I used Stylecraft Special DK)
♥ A bit of extra Black yarn to create it’s mouth.
♥ Crochet hook. (I used 3mm)
♥ Yarn Needle.
♥ Sewing Pins.
♥ Stitch Marker.
♥ Safety Eyes, 6mm.
Stitches used (US Terms):
CH = Chain.
SLST = Slip Stitch.
SC = Single Crochet.
Crab St = Crab Stitch.
ST = Stitch.
BL = Back Loops.
FL = Front Loops.
Inc = Increase.
Dec = Decrease.
(…) = Repeat the space in brackets the given number of times.
[…] = Total number of stitches.
This pattern is made with continues rounds, unless stated otherwise. Use a stitch marker to mark your first/last stitch of your row.

Whenever I start assembling Amigurumi, I’d like to use sewing pins to position all parts first until I’m happy. Then I will sew them on. I recommend you do so as well.
There isn’t anything to assemble on this one. But with the piece of black yarn, create his mouth.
If you want to hang it, don’t forget to add a loop to the top.
I hope you enjoyed today’s pattern! I think it’s adorable. If you decided to make any of the blogmas amigurumi, please show me on Twitter or Instagram with #DelinleaDIY. I’d love to see what you make using my patterns.
