Crochet Stocking for Your Furry 4-Legged Friends

Crochet dog stocking embellished with heart paw appliques, Christmas, cat, pets


This crochet Stocking for your dog or cat ensures that Santa does not overlook them during his holiday visit!  If he does miss them, you can fill their Stocking with their favorite treats and toys and then enjoy watching their excitement when they receive their gifts!

If you have friends who have other 4-legged family members,  this beautiful Stocking will be a welcomed handmade gift for them.

I made this crochet Stocking for our dog – our most wonderful golden retriever Lucy. I found that it is fun to make items for her. I enjoy making handmade items for her as much as I do for my own son.  

I already made for Lucy a pink dog bandana, Halloween bandana and Christmas scarf. Now she has her own Christmas Stocking as well.

If you want to add appliques to your Stocking, it is easier to sew them on BEFORE the two parts are joined together. 

I made three Heart Paw appliques and sewed them on one Stocking.

Joining Stockings Parts

To join two Stockings together, SC around both pieces by working 1 SC in SC row-end St, 1 SC in HDC row-end St,  2 SC in DC row-end St and 2 SC in Puff row-end St. Do not crochet too tight.

1.Align Stockings.

2. With white and starting from the front seam, SC along white part of the Stockings, change yarn to red and continue SC down the side, around toes, across the bottom and up the other side.

When you reach the white part, change color to white and continue to the end of the second side. Do not fasten off, make a hanging strap.
