This Granny Square Stocking can be used as an ornament on your tree, decoration when wrapping presents, homemade gift card holder. You can add wrapped candy or a small wrapped candy cane inside the stocking. These can be given to children while passing out presents. Wrapped candy prevents it melting on the stocking. When wrapping a gift you can use one or two mini stockings as an ornament. Also, as an stocking ornament hanging on your tree as filled with stocking stuffers as special surprises to any member or friend of the family.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
