Mini Christmas Stockings Crochet Pattern

Mini Christmas Stockings
 Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

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, too!

The Stockings measure approximately
6 inches from toe to heel.

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