Special Stitches
Bpdc (back post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from back side of work to front and to back again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (1 loop on hook).
dc2tog = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] twice, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
dc3tog = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 3 times, yarn over, draw through all 4 loops on hook.
Fpdc = Front post double crochet. Yarn over, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (1 loop on hook).
1/1 LC (1 over 1 Left Cross) = Skip next stitch, Fpdc around next st; working in front of Fpdc just made, Fpdc around the skipped stitch.
2/2 LC (2 over 2 Left Cross) = Skip next 2 stitches, Fpdc around each of next 2 stitches; working in front of the 2 Fpdc just made, Fpdc in each of the 2 skipped stitches.
2/2 RC (2 over 2 Right Cross) = Skip next 2 stitches, Fpdc around each of next 2 stitches; working behind the 2 Fpdc just made, Fpdc in each of the 2 skipped stitches.
3/3 LC (3 over 3 Left Cross) = Skip next 3 stitches, Fpdc around each of next 3 stitches; working in front of the 3 Fpdc just made, Fpdc in each of the 3 skipped stitches.
3/3 RC (3 over 3 Right Cross) = Skip next 3 stitches, Fpdc around each of next 3 stitches; working behind the 3 Fpdc just made, Fpdc in each of the 3 skipped stitches.
Notes
1. Stocking is made from 3 pieces: front, back, and cuff.
2. Front and back are worked from bottom of foot upwards.
3. Front and back are mirror-images of each other.
4. Cuff is worked from side to side. Short rows (worked over only a portion of the stitches in a row) are used to shape the cuff slightly. This creates a shorter top edge.
