Ho-ho-Holiday Season is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a free pattern! These mini stockings are fun to knit and make for a quick project - you can fill them up with treats for a Christmas gift or make a few and hang them around the home.

The written pattern is fully supported with a step by step video tutorial to guide you through each stage of knitting the stocking, the video times are annotated so you can skip to the part you want to watch straight away!

The tutorial is demonstrated using 4 double pointed needles, but you can adjust to knit with the magic loop method if you prefer. If you have never knit a sock or used double pointed needles before then this is the perfect introductory project.

The video can be accessed by visiting https://www.undertheolivetreeknits.com/free-patterns.html or through the Under the Olive Tree Knits YouTube channel.

Kits to make 3 Mini Stockings are available from the Under the Olive Tree Knits website – for more details visit the shop or click HERE
