Vintage Christmas Stocking with Faux Fur Pompoms and Cuff Free Crochet Pattern

I didn’t expect this striping yarn to have such an antique Christmas feel but as soon as I started stitching it up, it screamed that it wanted to be Christmas stockings! I paired it with a luxurious faux fur long pile fabric in pink blush with a cuff around the top and two faux fur poms.

Faux Fur Pompoms and Cuff

I really wanted a specific color for the cuff and pompoms for this project. For that, I decided that I would have to break down and make the faux fur pompom myself instead of buying it ready made. I used the tutorial from The Crochet Dude and I encourage you to give it a try. It was my first time and it turned out to be incredibly easy. Don’t let it scare you.

Notes

This stocking is made from the toe up, in the round.

The stocking is intended for decorative purposes only. In order to use it to hold small gifts, you would need to add a fabric lining.

Faux Fur Cuff

Make sure that your fabric is in the direction you want for the cuff. You don’t want the pile to go side to side, for instance. You want it to go in a downward direction.

Measure the top of your stocking. It should be a flat 5″ measurement, but you could be off slightly with tension. Double that number and add about .75″ to the measurement and that will be your length to go around the top of the cuff. The height of the cuff is 5″ which is a doubled measurement so the cuff folds inside.

Using a magic marker, mark the back of the fabric with the length and height. Cut out the rectangle with the craft knife. You don’t want to use scissors for this. You will end up cutting the pile of the faux fur and you will have puffs and bits everywhere.

Using sewing needle and sewing thread, sew the fabric to the top of the cuff, with a little overlapping to the front of the stocking, making sure that the pile is in the downward direction. After seaming all the way around, fold the top of the cuff inside and seam the ends together. The weight and texture of the fabric will keep the cuff inside.

Make Hanging Loop and Fake Ties

Ch 20, sk 1 ch, sl st in each remaining ch across, sl st to first sl st, fasten off. Weave in ends. Attach ring to inside top of Cuff with sewing thread.

Attach yarn with sl st to one of the dc, under the pile of the faux fur, directly below the hanging loop, ch 10, sk 1 ch, sl st in each remaining ch across (first fake tie made), sl st to same dc, ch 20, sk 1 ch, sl st in each remaining ch across, (second fake tie made), sl st to same dc, fasten off. Weave in ends.

Faux Fur Pom Poms

Use the tutorial from The Crochet Dude for more details.

Make 2. Working from the back of the fabric, using the template, draw a circle with the magic marker. Use the craft knife to cut around the circle. Using a sewing needle and sewing thread, lightly baste around the the circle, about 1/4″ from the edge, cut off thread. Place about four cotton balls in the center and cinch the ends of the threads carefully to close up the pom pom. Secure. Attach pom poms to ends of Fake Ties.
