Start with 55 chain. Starting from the second chain, from the hook. HDC in each chain across. You will end up 54 HDC.
Fold the boot in half and sew it together only by leaving the top open.
Round 17, I am using green yarn. Make a slip knot, and join in from the back center. Pull your yarn through. You will HDC 4 round. You will end up to Row 20.
Now you have your stocking with the hook. You are welcome to add names of your love ones or as I did above.....Joy, Noel, and so on.
I hope you give it try, it is very rewarding and not time consuming at all.
Merry Christmas to all!
