Pattern: Small Christmas Stocking

With the Christmas holidays right around the corner, I have been getting in the spirit by crocheting anything and everything Christmas-related that I can come up with.  Today, I am sharing a small Christmas stocking pattern that I wrote up last weekend.  This stocking, if crocheted with the suggested yarn and hook, is the perfect size to be a small gift bag or a large Christmas tree ornament.

Tie off and weave in ends.  Fold over cuff at three rows from the top to expose your hanging loop.
