Last Minute Holiday Gifts

While searching for last minute gift ideas, I came across Toni's recent blog about free crochet stocking patterns. I decided to make a few of the ornaments that were listed last on the page (click here for link). Not only is the stocking pattern available, but there is also an entire ornament set!
Shown here are the stocking ornament and the candy cane ornament. I used some leftover scraps of what I believe to be Sugar n' Cream yarn and a 5.0mm hook. These projects are festive, fun, and very quick… using up only a few yards of yarn!
Using traditional colors looks great but you could also play around with fun, pastel hues for more of a kitschy, retro vibe. I might crochet up the entire set in these four yarns and put them to adorn my white tree.
Lastly, I just wanted to wish a warm and happy holiday season to everyone. No matter what you celebrate, have a wonderful time with friends and family!
