Ch. 18 at the mid back to make a loop to hang your stocking.

For the bigger star, ch. 2 with hook no. 2.
Make a turning ch. each row.
At the end of each row, sc. 2 in the last st.
Continue until you have 11 st. in total.
From now on you are going to decrease by skipping the first st. each row. End with 1 sc.
For the little star, ch. 2 and increase until you have 9 st., then start to decrease the same way as the star above.
Attach the diamonds together so that they form a star. Put the 2 start on top of each other and crochet them together with a row of sc. When you are using a coloured yarn the star gets a nice and colourful edge. Stuff the star and close it.
Finally, you crochet a chain that is used to pull through the stocking. Ch. 151 and make a wrong side row of sc.
