    Mikey, if there’s a pattern, diagram that I am very interested in but do not know how to make it & I send you a picture of said chart, will you do a video tutorial on it? Just asking because I saw a lot of foreign diagrams with oh-so beautiful patterns but alas, I do not know how to read a diagram. I have listened to your diagram reading tutorial but I guess their charts are pretty confusing to me, oh dear 🙁 Just made my first Christmas Stocking and uploaded my picture in AllFreeCrochet.com 🙂 Thank you for being such a wonderful crochet teacher & I love you 🙂

    I love your videos Mikey! I think they are probably the most informative crochet videos on the web! Not boring, fun, and you explain everything so a novice like me feels like I can do projects, but also great for more advanced crocheters!
    Thank you!

    Both videos appear to be left handed. Oops or on purpose? Either way, yay stockings!

    I was really glad to see you did a video for this pattern. I’ve made this stocking a few times before following the pattern as is, but watching your video, I think the next time I’ll do the foot section (after the heel) in the round as it looks like it would be really easy to do, then do the toe also in the round, decreasing as I go. Hopefully, it’ll work out. 🙂

        Hi, I am a beginner crochet and I am currently working on this stocking. However, I wanted my stocking to be pretty tight, so that it will stand the test of time and abuse of little kids so I am doing mine in single crochet. I am done with the heel and trying to do the foot section. You did 10 rows of HDC, and said to do 10 rows of whatever stitch we did in the top section. But when I did 10 rows of SC, it was obviously much shorter then your 10 rows of HDC… I’m worried it won’t look right as a finished project. Should I leave it as is or do a few extra SC rows for the foot section. I tried reading the latter but as I stated before I am new to this and the pattern didn’t make much sense to me… Any help and advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

          Hi Samantha, Maybe you should double the SC rows as a SC is about 1/2 the height of a HDC. Try that, like you were thinking, and if it looks too long, just frog a couple of rows. Welcome to the wonderful world of crochet! This place is the best to get ideas and help. 🙂
