From the Designer: "These are miniature Christmas stockings made from 4 ply yarns. Each stocking takes about a half an hour or less to make. I even use fun fur as the top trim and ribbon for the bows. For each color yarn I use a make three or four different sizes from really tiny about 1 1/2 inches up 4 inches. I make larger ones to use as treat gift bags too. The ornaments make the tree look so festive!"

This was a Top Ten Ornament in the Best Ornament Contest 2016! Check out the top ten winners here, and be sure to check out all of the amazing ornament tutorial entries.

I made one last night and my grand daughter took it for her little tree. I down sized my tree this year to a slim tree and some of my ornaments were too big. They hung against it not in or on it. These are just the right size to put on it.

These are so cute but I have not crochet in years. I am going to try to make some and see if I can remember how to do these stitches. I may have to find some how to again. These stocking ornaments would be a cute addition to any tree and great to add one for each child or grand child. I may have to make some throughout the year and put on tree next year. Anyone make any?
