Step 1

As the first step of this sock drawing tutorial, you’ll start with the top of the sock. For this design, we used some curves for the top and sides of the sock.

Then for the base of this part, we used some straight, serrated lines to create a pointed pattern for the base.

Christmas stockings will often be hung on the wall or mantle, so they often have a small fabric loop to hang them on.

We will also add this in this step and you can draw it with some simple curves on top of the sock.

Finish this step by drawing a thin shape for the opening of the sock, and then we can move on to step 2.

Step 2 – Now draw the edges of the sock

Now that you have completed the top part of this sock drawing, we can start drawing the main part of the garment.

This should be pretty easy in this step! All you need to do is draw a straight line down from the front of the sock. This line will curve quite clearly outward, as shown in our reference image.

Then we’ll draw another line from the back of the pantyhose. This line will go straight down and it will not have a curve like the first one.

Then you’ll be ready to watch season 3!

Step 3 – Draw the next part of the pantyhose

Continuing with this tutorial on how to draw a neck, we will add another part to it now. First, draw a curved line coming from the back of the sock for the ankle part.

This will stretch into a flatter, slightly wavy line for the base of the sock.

Then draw a sharp circle coming from the front of the sock. This one will be really curly, as there will be a curl in the front of the sock.

We’ll finish this curve in the next step of the tutorial, so when you’re ready, we can move on!

Step 4 – Next, complete the outline for the stock

The fourth step of the drop drawing will help you complete the outline, and this step will get you ready for some of the details in the next section.

As we mentioned in the previous section of the tutorial, there will be a curl in the front of the tights.

This is a popular design for Christmas socks, that’s why we chose it for this drawing!

You can use some circles to draw it, and remember to refer to the reference image to make it look right.

Having completed the front part of the pantyhose, we can move on to the final details in the next section.

Step 5 – Add the final details to your drop drawing

Before you add some color to your artwork, we have some final details to add to this step of the tutorial on how to draw a pair of tights.

They will mainly focus on some decorative elements, and in our design we have drawn some stripes inside the hem of the sock.

You can also add some patterns, designs or even other elements like little bells to your own drawing!

For some extra Christmas fun, you can even paint a background, perhaps showing the room in which these stockings are hanging.

Step 6 – Finish your leftover drawing with color

You’ve reached the last step of this in-stock drawing, and now you’re free to color your creation!

You have many different options for colors and art media that you can use for this drawing, so you can really have fun getting creative with it.

In our reference image, we used a classic Christmas color scheme of alternating red with green for the stripes of our socks.

These are just some of the colors you can use, so now’s your chance to show off the colors you think would be perfect for these tights!

You can also use some creative art media like acrylic paints or markers to bring the colors to life. You can even incorporate some crafts like beads and sequins.

These are just a few suggestions, but what colors would you use to finish off this amazing image?

Your stock drawing is done!

You have completed all 6 steps of the how to draw a sock tutorial and you have an amazing portrait of this Christmas gift box!

We hope that the steps in this tutorial helped you learn how to draw this sock in a fun and easy way!
