Colors
Red for the main stocking, black for toe, heel, and ears. White for cuff and skirt trim.

CUFF
With H hook, and black yarn ch 47. Work 4 rows of sc in black. Switch to white yarn and crochet 14 rows of single crochet. Edge only the lower part of the cuff according to pattern. Sew cuff seam. Attach to main part of stocking with black yarn, starting at seam using sc with the black part on top. Do not fasten off. Go onto the ears.

Ears 
With black yarn still attached, slip st in first 2 stitches. EAR 1: Ch 3. Skip 2 sc and Hdc 7 times in next sc, ch1 sk 2 sc and slst in next sc. Turn, 2 hdc in each hdc and top of ch3 st [16hdc made].…
