Perfect for using up sock yarn scraps, each mini stocking uses a bit less than 5g of yarn. They are knit from the toe up, with a gusset and short row heel turn (no stitches to pick up!) and finished off with an iCord bind-off which incorporates a hanging loop. Use them as tree decorations or make lots and hang as bunting, or better still - make 24 and fill with mini chocolates for a super cute Advent calendar!

The instructions are written for magic loop but you can substitute other methods for knitting in the round.

Judy’s magic cast-on, make one left/right and knit front/back increases and the iCord bind-off and.

Finished stocking measures 3 1/8” (8cm) from top of bind-off to end of toe and 1 3/4” (4.5cm) wide below bind-off edge.

You can use any 4ply sock yarn. The pattern is designed to use a little under 5g of yarn. If your gauge doesn’t match mine then you might use more or less yarn to complete the sock.
