There was no real pattern to follow so we worked it out easily enough by sharing crochet know how and made little stocking decorations until they were everywhere. Wil and Bev G made a heap!
Here are some pictures and a pattern!
A pentagon granny square folded in half to make a little stocking.
Make them in whatever colour you like!
Add some sparkle :)
or a bell on the toe!
Put a few sweets, a roll of mints or a roll of cold hard cash inside,
hang them on the Christmas tree
and you will be popular.
