Christmas in a Hurry ~ 15-minute Stockings


Christmas in a Hurry ~ 15-minute Stockings

I have made hundreds of little stockings for fundraising over the past 10 years.

I wish I had thought of this sooner! These cute little stockings are made using 2 strands of DK yarn knitted together. Use 5mm or 6mm needles

So simple - and so quick to knit!

Great for fundraising projects, and for decorations or gifts.
