Christmas Ornament Free Crochet Pattern – Stocking Full of Coal

Stocking Full of Coal - Free Christmas Crochet Pattern

Introducing “Stocking Full of Coal,” a perfectly delightful free Christmas crochet pattern intended to bring a smile to your face as you stitch it and as you gift it to your friends and family 🙂

Originally designed as part of the Naughty AF Wall Hanging, this pattern is meant to be fun and a little cheeky 🙂 Naughty AF is also available free, and you can even sign up to get the premium version for free, so be sure to go check it out!

As for this ornament, let your family and friends know just how good you think they’ve been this year!

This little stocking is small enough to be included in the package with holiday cards, though make sure you check to see how postage will be affected…I made that mistake a few years ago… O.o

FAIR WARNING. In this house, we swear friend.

Most of my patterns involve swear words. Just want to make that clear before you go any further <3

Full Wall Hanging Pattern FREE

This ornament pattern is part of the Naughty AF Wall Hanging! Get the free pattern below!


Main Body (A): Ch 20 (leave long tail for sewing),
begin Row 1 in second ch from hook
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, 7sc, turn (leave
remaining ch unworked, this will be the little
stocking hanger) (8sc)
Row 2-7: ch 1, sc across, turn (8sc)
Row 8: ch 4(counts as tr), tr, 2dc, 2hdc, 2sc, turn
Row 9: ch 1 (counts as sc), sc, 2hdc, 2dc, 2tr, turn
Row 10: Repeat row 8
Row 11: Repeat row 9
Row 12-16: ch1, sc across, turn
Row 17: ch1, sk1, sc2tog, 3sc, sc2tog, turn
Row 18: ch1, sk1, sc2tog, sc, sc2tog, fasten off
leaving long tail for sewing
Decorative Top (B): attach second color at either end
of top of stocking, leave long tails at beginning and
end for sewing.*
Ch3, dc in same st (counts as 1st dcs,) dcs in each
st across, fasten off leaving tail for sewing

*I recommend running this tail horizontally through the
middle of the top row stitches and using it to cinch the
stitches together a little bit. This just makes the top of the
stocking look a little fuller, without adding a lot of bulk.



Pattern Instructions Continued


Attach (C) in second st of top row, from either end.
In same st (sc, dc, sc,) sk next st
In 4th st (sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc,) sk next st
In 6th st (sc, hdc, hdc, sc), sl st, fasten off
And BTW, feel free to deviate here, this isn’t supposed
to be perfect, as coal is definitely not perfect!
