FREE CROCHET PATTERN – Mini Christmas Stockings!

How cute are these.  I’ve decided to make 24 of them this year instead of having an advent calendar!

I’m stashing them all over the tree for the kids to find one every morning and it’s reusable which, after making 24, I’m feeling pretty glad about!  They’re also really good for Christmas markets or teacher gifts.  Are you preparing for a Christmas market?  Be sure to check out my Etsy shop there’s some great patterns that include printable packaging giving you that chic edge.  There’s also a more in depth version of this pattern available in my shop that includes colour changes and three printable labels, as pictured above, included in the download.
