This darling little stocking makes great last minute gifts, gifts for coworkers and friends or even decorations! Each one requires only 40 yards of yarn and about 45 minutes to make. You can be as creative as you like with the coloring!

The crochet mini stocking is worked from the band, downward. Follow along with the images I have provided to guide you through the trickier spots.
