Sure hun,
Here it is...
Crocheted Christmas Stocking Ornament.

Size g crochet hook
Small amounts of any worsted weight yarn.

Stitches used: chain stitch = ch; Double crochet = dc; slip stitch = slst

Start with a slip knot and chain 4, (1 ch as the center and 3 chs count as the first dc) 2 dc in 1st ch of ch 4, (ch 2, 3 dc) 4 times in same ch. Ch 2, join to fourth ch of the first ch 4. (should have 5 clusters) Cut and change colors or continue in same color.
Next round;
Slst to next ch 2 space, ch 3, 2 dc in ch 2 sp, (In next ch 2 space, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) 4 times. In beginning ch 2 sp, 3 dc, ch 1, sc in top of ch 3.
Next round;
Ch 3, 2 dc in same space, in next space between clusters, make 3 dc, (in between corners you will make 3 dc in each space between clusters) In corner ch 2 sp make 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc.
Continue as established making 1 more cluster in each round. In the last round you will join just as stated before (so that you can start slip stitching or if you want thicker seam single crocheting the back side of the stocking together).
4 rounds should be sufficient for our dimensions. You can make these bigger or smaller just either by changing the amount of rounds, or changing the yarn size and needle size to coordinate.
Do not cut yarn as you will use this to slip stitch the back seam of the stocking.

Basically this is just a recipe

Assembly;
With the hook in the sc of the last join, it will now become the point of the toe of the stocking, fold the tip of the pentagon and the bottom flat side (looks like the chrysler symbol) in half so that it looks like a stocking. Match the dc's from both sides and sl st or single crochet along the bottom to the corner, slip st in the corners (make sure you get both sides) then matching dc's sl st or sc along the back of the stocking to the top at the other corners where there is an opening for the goodies. Ch 12 for the hanging loop and sl st in the last seam chain. break off and weave in the end. Taadaaahhh!! you are done!!
I will post a pic of one of these and the directions will make much better sense then.
Basically all it really is is a granny square with five corners. If you have any questions just let me know.

Thanks
Tami

Y'all, this is my friend I told you about!! I'm so excited that she found her way to our thread!

I'm going to post the pictures of her stockings for her.

I don't know how you all are doing them so quickly! I just finished my 3rd. Maybe it's because my "helper" Itchy keeps running off with the yarn ball!
