Mini Christmas Stockings Crochet Pattern

This Crochet Pattern, Mini Christmas Stockings,
Was a request by one of my fans.
She wants to fill them with 
Dog cookies and treats to raise
 money for A Chihuahua Rescue.
And I think it is a great idea.

And they are perfect for human cookies and treats.
And Gift Cards!

The Stockings measure approximately
5 inches from toe to heel, and 6.5 inches long.

This pattern is fun, easy and stitches up quickly.
And depending on yarn colors, 
you can make all sorts of styles.
