Crochet Mini Stockings - Christmas Ornament - Raffamusa Designs

Ever since I made the Ugly Christmas Sweater Ornament, I wanted to make a matching mini stocking.

The V-Stitch brings out all the festive spirit, and these red, green, and white stockings seem to come right from Elfland!

Crochet a few in different colors and use them as Christmas ornaments, keychain holders, or festive gift tags!
