Free Crochet Pattern: Mini Puff Stitch Stocking

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably still looking for a few more small gifts for the people on your list.  This mini stocking is the perfect way to check off the rest of your gifts for the year! It’s just the right size to hold a gift card, some candy, or another small item, and it’s adorably small so your giftee will love it! The best part is, it takes less than a half hour to make.  You could easily make a bunch of these in an afternoon… They would also be perfect as a family set!
