Dog Bone Christmas Stocking - RE- Release Free Crochet Pattern


I am re- releasing this 
Christmas Stocking Crochet pattern.
Dog Bone Shaped Christmas Stocking. 
It was previously a paid pattern, 
and I am making it Free here on my Blog -
I have made them many times
 for others, and for myself.
It is a pretty easy crochet pattern,
and fun to make in different colors of yarn.

I have sold many of the patterns,
But wanted to make it free, 
because it is used for a lot of  different 
Dog Rescue Fund raisers this time of year.

I also have a Paw print Stocking 
that I will be re -releasing
next week,
As a Free Pattern on the Blog, as well.
