Hi, I have made four so far, you work on one side for the toe - you start out with I believe 15 stitches, next row 13, then 11, etc. De.creasing down to four stitches. then join yarn to make the other side of the toe doing the exact same

Is there a video? I am so confused with directions for the toe... Plz help!

Hi Member 4696623, Unfortunately, we do not have a video for this specific project. For questions about specific patterns, I suggest reaching out to the designer (in this case Red Heart) and asking for their guidance. Happy holidays! - Kaylee, Editor

Good news! I found a video on Red Heart's website, hope this helps: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/quick-easy-stocking

I am really confused on the directions for the foot. Help please!

For specific project questions, I suggest reaching out to the designer (in this case Red Heart) or our lovely Facebook community. Unfortunately, I have never made this project, so I am not much help! Happy crocheting! - Kaylee, Editor

Hi. I am completely baffled by where it starts at the foot and the main color is joined at the heal, then it says to decrease at the leg. So do I join the MC yarn that I attached to the heal to the leg, and if so, where do I join it at , or where to I decrease at? I hope I am making sense. I would really like to make this in time for Chrismas . Thank you.

Hi dianah! I would suggest reach out to the designer (Red Heart) with any questions! Thanks. - Kaylee, Editor

this is my first project in a long tim, I have completed the leg and heal. the instructions for the foot have lost... Foot With right side facing, skip first 7 (10, 11) sc of heel ((what im assuming this means is I start in the bottom of the heal?? using the main color or CC s7nce its says join MC next?)), join MC and sc in last 7 (10, 11) sc, [dec over next 2 sc of leg] twice, sc in next 8 (14, 16) sc of leg, [dec over next 2 sc of leg] twice, sc in remaining 7 (10, 11) sc of heel; turn 26 (38, 42) sc. Work even in sc and stripe pattern until foot measures 3 (5, 6) from last ... if someone can help me understand these steps id be greatful.

Hi! I reccomend watching the video over on Red Heart's site for some clarification: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/quick-easy-stocking

made this last night, very easy and fun.

would you be able to assist with questions about the foot im so lost! Thanks Tracy

Hi. Maybe you can help the rest of us then. We seem to be stuck at the foot. Thank you :)

Could you maybe explain the foot?

I am stuck on the heel as well. Decreasing to 4 sts seems okay for the small version, but what about the other two larger ones? I am making the largest and decreasing to 4 sts makes the heels GIANT! I was trying to think about what a logic number of sts would be to decrease to, but I am just learning to crochet, and since the patter doesn't really seem to have a logical ratio from size to size, I think that I am stuck. HELP, please someone!

Hi! I reccomend watching the video over on Red Heart's site for some clarification: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/quick-easy-stocking

Anyone know - Is the yard amounts for all three stockings or just one stocking? I have approx 150 yds of red yarn but am scared I'll run out making the medium size (super saver is approx 360 yds)

I'm confused with what to do after the heel?

Hi! I reccomend watching the video over on Red Heart's site for some clarification: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/quick-easy-stocking

I didn't write this pattern but I can help with the Heel being a little hard to understand. It should read like this: Heel 1. With right side facing, skip 23 (32, 35) sc; join CC and sc in last 7 (10, 11) sc; bring other side of leg around and sc in first 7 (10, 11) sc; turn 14 (20, 22) sc. 2. Next Row: Ch 1, dec, sc in each sc to last 2 sc; dec; turn 12 (18, 20) sc. 3. Next Rows: Ch 1, sc in each sc to last 2 sc; dec at end of each row until 4 sts remain. Now increase 1 st at each end of every row until there are 14 (20, 22) sc. Fasten off.

got to the heel and now I can not get passed. I only got that far because of the video. instructions are very confusing.

Hello! The comment above you offers some clarification for this pattern. Hope that helps!

This pattern is attributed to me, but I did not design this pattern. I don't know who did. Ellen Gormley.

Hi Ellen! I am so sorry this comment was never addressed. I have edited the byline to simply attribute it to Red Heart Yarn. Thanks for letting us know! - Kaylee, Editor
