Christmas Stocking Granny Square



Hello everyone, Christmas is just around the corner. I like to make these Christmas themed granny squares each year. You can do alot with them, Make a blanket out of them, a table runner, or even use them as ornaments. 

This year I made the stocking. After a few failed trials, I finally came with one that I liked.

  • Hook: 3 mm
