Description from designer’s website:
These charming Christmas stockings are quick and easy to make and they can be used in a variety of ways. Here are some suggestions.

Stuff them softly for tree decorations or add some small candies to please the children.

Enclose two or three luxury chocolates for your party guests, then attach a small name card and they turn into novelty place markers.

Filled with small fabric bags of lavender, they make sweet scented sachets – delightful as gifts or for charity fund-raising.

Instead of the usual gift box, use a stocking as the ‘gift wrapping’ for a small present, such as jewellery.

Or simply hang some on a cord for Christmas bunting.

Each stocking only requires 5 grams (less than ¼ ounce) of yarn and measures 8.5cm (about 3¼in) in length.
